LIVE AND LET DIE (1973)

Roger Moore’s debut as 007 is a fun mash up of the spy and blaxploitation genres.  The grounded plot (for a Bond film) pits the cock of the walk super agent against a Caribbean drug lord played by the great Yaphet Kotto. A plethora of wild chases, including one of film’s greatest boat pursuits, and lots of wink at the camera humor highlight this eighth entry in the series. The title song by Paul McCartney and Wings is a classic.

    My favurite Bond as a kid, as it had everything, voodoo, explosions, scary robo-scarecrows with bullet-eyes, exploding men, sharks,Maddy Smith unzipped, racist sheriffs that made me laugh, Southern fried humour (this must have influenced Hal Needham’s stuff, although Tom Mankiewicz did do the similar Mother, Jugs and Speed)
