Return of the Saints I know the producers expected me to be perving at Eliza Dushku in the reimagining of The Saint, shopped at Cannes earlier this month, but I couldn’t get over the fact that Sir Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy are in the pilot in bit parts. Sir Roger also co-produces—I assume Tribune owns the TV rights. More thoughts in my blog post today.
Look who signed our SKYFALL DB5…
Only Sir Roger Moore!
We can look over the fact that this 007 didn’t actually ever drive a DB5. It’s still pretty cool!
Roger and Aston Well, yes and no. Roger Moore did drive the DB5 in The Cannonball Run.
Roger Moore Probably the best and funniest Roger Moore interview I’ve seen, ﬁlmed a few weeks back just shy of his 85th birthday. Because he’s being interviewed by a Brit—Piers Morgan—he’s allowed his regular humour to come through.
I’m greatly looking forward to delving into my memory box again and rummaging through the photo albums to admire my great physique, dashing good looks and full set of teeth.
Fancier than Lawrence and Sheriff Ali In James Bond, if you do a desert crossing, you must do so in full evening dress.
More than Valerie My friend Keith Adams started a Valerie Leon fan page on Facebook after publishing a 1973 Motor Show photograph with the actress—and two-time Bond girl. Tonight, after uploading some screen shots from The Persuaders episode ‘The Long Goodbye’ to Keith’s page, in which Valerie guest-stars, I was reminded how many famous people were in this: Anoushka Hempel, for starters, who is a successful interior designer and hotelier now, and Madeline Smith, another Bond girl who was with Roger Moore in Live and Let Die. Here are the two ladies with Bernie and Roger.
The different eras of watching The Persuaders When I was a kid, it was: cool cars!
When I was a teen and in my 20s: those birds are ﬁt!
Today: cripes, Bernie Schwartz was on a lot of drugs when he made this.
