Pinewood Studios dedicated one of its sound stages to the late Roger Moore in an emotional, star-studded ceremony yesterday.
Roger Moore addressed his legacy and paid tribute to Richard Kiel when we interviewed him back in 2014.
It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).
Among her many pop culture achievements, supermodel, singer, and actress Grace Jones played one of the most memorable Bond girls ever in 1985’s A View to a Kill. As alluring henchwoman May Day, Jones romanced Roger Moore’s 007 — in between trying to kill him of course. In her new book — cheekily titled I’ll Never Write My Memoirs — the 67-year-old Jones reveals some tantalizing tidbits about her brief, but indelible time as one of James Bond’s main squeezes. 1. Her Bond movie debut was actually supposed to be in 1983’s Octopussy.
James Bond is a master spy, a solid hand-to-hand combatant, and a dapper dresser. But his most impressive skill must just be wordplay. The MI6 secret agent has been specializing in corny innuendo for more than 50 years, quipping his way into the hearts and beds of women around the world. Yahoo Superfan collected some of 007’s best double entendres, ranging from Sean Connery’s modest quips to Pierce Bronsnan’s blunt forehead-slappers (see: “I thought Christmas only came once a year” — as spoken to a lover named Christmas Jones).
