LIVE AND LET DIE
1973, MGM/Park Circus, 121 min, UK, Dir: Guy Hamilton

In his first outing as James Bond, Roger Moore takes on heroin magnate Yaphet Kotto and romances the gorgeous Jane Seymour. Blaxploitation meets elegant spy thriller in this chase-filled roller-coaster ride, which places Bond in a world of Caribbean gangsters and voodoo. The classic title song is by Paul McCartney.


DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER
1971, MGM/Park Circus, 120 min, Dir: Guy Hamilton

James Bond (Sean Connery returning to the role after a one film hiatus) goes from Amsterdam to Las Vegas on the track of missing diamonds and encounters his arch-nemeis, Ernst Stavros Blofeld (Charles Gray) along the way.


GOLDFINGER
1964, Park Circus/MGM, 111 min, Dir: Guy Hamilton

"Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?" "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die," cackles homicidal villain Auric Goldfinger (Gert Frobe) as he prepares to rearrange 007’s secret equipment with a laser beam, in what is widely considered to be the best of the classic Sean Connery Bond pictures and a high point in 1960s pop culture. Co-starring the saucy Honor Blackman as Bond’s nemesis-turned-partner Pussy Galore.
