(1963) and Goldfinger
(1964), the gun barrel walk was done with stuntman Bob Simmons
. Roger Moore
became the first actor to perform the gun barrel sequence without a hat in Live and Let Die
(1973). The Spy Who Loved Me
(1977) featured a more modern version of the gun-barrel opening sequence. It featured a closer shot of Roger Moore
