Roger Moore, Iconic 70s Bond

Roger Moore has died, aged 89, after a 'short battle with cancer' his family have announced. He will be remembered for his portrayal of James Bond, the longest serving Bond of all time, but let's not forget his success in both The Saint and The Persuaders before he landed the big one.

For me Moore was under-rated for his performances as Bond. He brought a new direction to the role, reaching a peak with 1977's The Spy Who Loved Me.

Iconic opening scene, iconic car and Bond played the way Fleming originally wrote him, as a very smooth, very English, gentleman.
