James Bond Special : The Sir Roger Moore Era - Episode 71
“Call me James. It’s 5 days to Alaska.” To celebrate the theatrical release of No Time to Die, it’s tuxedos on and Walther PPKs at the ready, as Gali and Matt pop the cork on that Dom Pérignon ’52 they’d been saving, and delve deeply into the cinematic treasures that are Sir Roger Moore’s seven James Bond entries.
Using the three eras of Moore as Bond, from 1973’s Live and Let Die, to A View to a Kill in ‘85, we tackle how filmmakers, Guy Hamilton, Lewis Gilbert, and John Glen, employed ol’ Rog, chart the humour, romanticism, ham and cheese, Bond girls, geriaction, sexual politics, unfortunate aging (in more ways than one), and the uncertain future of the franchise, whilst reappraising and ranking each film to aid you in selecting your next Roger Moore adventure.
Life-long Moore-guy, Matt, argues the case for the raised eyebrowed one being the quintessential 007, as the Rewinders discuss whether Roger managed to keep the British end up all those years, or if it all got a bit too daft for its own good. Were we double-taking like Moonraker pigeons, or did the bubbles tickle our... Tchaikovsky? Find out on this special, one-off, Nobody Does It Better episode of The Rewind Movie Podcast.
