Being a child of the 70’s, Roger Moore was “my” Bond. It’s become fashionable to look upon him as “lesser” than Sean Connery or Daniel Craig. For the 70’s though? He was a camp Bond for a camp time.
My dad was/is a big 007 fan, and when one of the movies played on television I was allowed to stay up past my bed time. It was a special occasion.
I don’t go back and watch Moore’s Bond with the same regularity as some of the others, but he was the 007 of my childhood. May he rest in peace.
