I was never a great fan of his acting abilities, but he made the archetypal Bond.

A nice story for the boy to be able to relate later.
The grandfather probably kept very very quiet about it for the rest of his life. :)

Personally, my memories of him in The Saint and The Persuaders beat those of his Bond.

A lovely piece of satire courtesy of Spitting Image.

And yes, he was pretty decent in "The Persuaders"

RIP. A good guy. He was also against hunting animals. Saw an episode of the Persuaders the other day and it was still fun.

In addition to enjoying his iconic "Bond, James Bond" roles; the wife and I have been fans of the reruns of the early sixties oater series "Maverick."

Always a clever and facetious show, mostly about sly stings, scams and ruse; with a delightfully wry sense of humor. The primary Maverick brother was, of course, James Garner, followed by the second Maverick brother, Jack Kelly; but the most delightfully suave and sly surprise is always an appearance by the very young looking "James Bond" Maverick brother, Roger Moore.

How'd he get so old?

RIP
