Re: RIP Roger Moore

Live and Let Die was the first Bond film I saw and it just blew me away!
A fantastic Bond and a true Gentleman.
RIP Roger. Thank you.

Re: RIP Roger Moore

I was born in 1986, so I was not alive during Roger Moore's tenure as James Bond. Nevertheless, Roger was my dad's Bond, and like many of you, I watched my first Bond film with my father. The film we watched was The Spy Who Loved Me. It remains my favorite to this day, and Roger's suave, elegant portrayal of Bond remains the one against which I judge all the rest.  ajb007/martini

Re: RIP Roger Moore

A first class individual and to me the definitive elder statesman for the brand.  Now sadly the first to leave us, but what a tremendous legacy he left us with.

Godspeed, Sir Roger.

Unbelievable (literally). I have to question your judgement. I'll leave you to grieve. And maybe think about your actions.

Re: RIP Roger Moore

My first memories of Sir Roger are very early and in black and white! Ivanhoe, Maverick and the Saint (which was a favourite of my Mum) were series I watched. The Persuaders - what a great theme tune, set the scene for a smart stylish role which did have an influence in making me want to look and dress smartly when the occasion merited it.

Then when he became an even more stylish, very British Bond, a different but effective change to Connery. The Bond of my late teens/early twenties I loved his portrayal of 007.

Many other, often underrated, enjoyable performances followed and it's a very sad day to lose a warm hearted, generous man.

Re: RIP Roger Moore

What an enormous loss! Not my favorite Bond, in fact I think he was one of the weakest Bonds. He missed the animal-like danger that Connery had. But, as a person, he must be my favorite. The man oozes charm, charisma, humor and he was a philanthropist. An overall great human being who will be missed enormously. I will continue watching his Bond movies, that are not exactly Fleming's kind of Bond, but thoroughly entertaining every single one of them. R.I.P. Sir Roger!

Re: RIP Roger Moore

Such a sad loss. I have many fond memories of watching Roger's Bond films with my dad back in the day when they appeared on ITV. LALD/TSWLM remain two of my all time favourites. RIP Sir Rog!

Re: RIP Roger Moore

Very very sad day. Roger was a proper legend. I still remember vividly my Mum taking me and my Sister to see Live and Let Die at Kensington Odeon.

Yes. Considerably!

Re: RIP Roger Moore

I'm crushed right now. My introduction to 007 was as a young kid seeing AVTAK in the theater. I loved that he played the role with humor and grace. No matter how silly the plot might have been, Sir Roger always looked so smooth and suave.
I come here almost every day, but rarely post. Just wanted to express my appreciation for Sir Roger Moore.

RIP Sir Roger Moore

Re: RIP Roger Moore

Shocking news. Always one of my favourite Bonds along with Tim Dalton. Sir Roger saved the Bond series in the 1970s, along with the British film industry. Sir Roger was blessed with a good long life and he lived it to the full. In the words of Ian Fleming, he certainly used his time, and for good.  ajb007/martini

He was the best! And I already did: http://www.bondsuits.com/roger-moore-fa … ssed-away/

Excellent tribute, BTW. I don't know how many times I've bought a sports jacket, or shirt because it looked like something Sir Roger had worn. He was a strong influence on my fashion tastes as well.

Thanks! He certainly has influenced the clothes I wear. I like large collars on my shirts because of his large shirt collars (but I also need them to balance my large head).
