Watched a very interesting 70's double feature the other day. Both have been talked about here before, but it has been a while.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME 1977 (MGM) This is my favorite James Bond film. Roger Moore essays the role very well. His Bond is second only to Sean Connery. In this classic adventure Bond is sent to get some top secret microfilm an finds himself working with a very sexy Russian agent called "Triple X" played by the gorgeous Barbara Bach.

A wealthy madman named Stromberg, played by Curt Jergens also wants the microfilm, which will help him take over the world. Helping Stromberg is a giant of a man called "Jaws" played by Richard Kiel and the ultra sexy Naomi as portrayed by none other than Caroline Munro.

The action never lets up in this wonderful adventure film. Flawless entertainment.

THE OMEGA MAN 1971 (WARNER) Charlton Heston is Robert Neville, the last surviving human after the rest of mankind has been wiped out by germ warfare in 1977. He must fight off a large group of deformed and homicidal killers known as "The Family" who seek him out at night. they are sensitive to light and must stay inside during the day.

Heston soon finds a young black woman (Rosaland Cash) and a small group of children who are still human. He develops a relationship with the woman named Lisa and tries to help her and the children fight the disease since anyone can turn at any time.

This has been a favorite of mine for a long time, and I guess it always will be. This is the second official filming of the novel "I Am Legend" by Richard Matheson. Heston and Cash are both at the top of their game here and Paul Koslo is very good as Dutch.

One of the best of it's kind and a great Saturday night film.
