    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Oh, my. What a classy actor, too. Nice pic with the pipe!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Always was my favorite Bond.

    Sad to hear. Not my favorite Bond, but very worthy of the role. Once your a Bond, you're always a Bond. RIP 007.

    Easily my favorite Bond with Connery a close 2nd. And then Daniel Craig (also smokes a pipe on occasion)

    Roger

    And one of his Bond "girls"...

    RIP. My favorite Bond film was live and let die. He was always so proper. Quintessential British gentleman.

    Classy and debonair. I loved him in The Saint as well as 007.

    He was my first taste of Bond. My parents took our big ass Plymouth station wagon to the drive-in when Octopussy came out in the theaters, the drive-in was running a double feature that began with For Your Eyes Only and then Octopussy second. I still remember being mesmerized by the girls, the guns, the baddies and most of all the debonair British secret agent James Bond, who at that time was played by Roger Moore. My father preferred Sean Connery, but as I had never seen a Connery Bond at that point, Roger Moore was James Bond to me, it was many years later before I would prefer Sean Connery as Bond, but Roger Moore will always have a special place in my heart, for introducing Bond and the whole secret agent mystique to me in the summer of 1983 when I was 8 going on 007!

    I had seen a few of the Connery films first if I remember correctly, but only on TV. Roger was the Bond I remember on the big screen as a kid. RIP Roger.

    My favorite Bond film was live and let die.

    One thing's for sure...it was hands down the best Bond movie song:

    Sad day for sure. Connery was my favorite, but Moore did one hell of a job........ RIP Roger Moore.

    I guess the man in the Mao suit with the white cat finally caught up with him! Here is a brief film made about him and Connery living in a retirement home...

    One of the best actor stories ever, and it involved Roger Moore...

    Wow, my first Bond experience was similar. My folks took my brother and me to a drive-in Bond double feature ... except the pairing was Live and Let Die, followed by Diamonds are Forever. Based on this, along with my prior exposure to reruns of The Saint on the local station weekend afternoons, Sir Roger was my preferred 007 through most of my childhood.

    Funny ... Moonraker is generally considered one of the weaker entries in the series. To me, it's also one of the most rewatchable of the bunch and in my top three favorites.

    He did some terrific things in his "retirement." There will never be anyone quite like him.
