Roger Moore was James Bond to me and much better than anyone who ever played the character.
I was first introduced to Roger Moore thru his television series "The Saint" on TV back in the mid 70's and I liked his suave and sophisticated approach to the material and the title character.
Later I saw him in "The Spy Who Loved Me" which turned into my favorite James Bond film. All of the other Bond films he did were great in my opinion, but that one took the cake.
He made many TV appearances and everyone he did with class and style. He was born in Stockwell, England in 1927. He died in Switzerland on May 23, 2017.
