A VIEW TO A KILL
1985, MGM/Park Circus, 131 min, UK, Dir: John Glen

In the final film in the franchise to star Roger Moore, Agent 007 goes up against wealthy industrialist and horse racer Max Zorin, who plans to corner the market on microchips by destroying Silicon Valley. Given the story's setting, Bond gets to do a bit of San Francisco sightseeing - some of it while dangling from an airship! A VIEW TO A KILL features some of the best bad guys of the entire series, with Christopher Walken as the steroid-crazed Zorin and Grace Jones as his lethal assistant May Day. Imposing as those villains are, Bond has some pretty experienced operatives in his corner, among them Patrick Macnee (John Steed from TV's “The Avengers”) and Lois Maxwell (in her final appearance as Miss Moneypenny).


FOR YOUR EYES ONLY
1981, MGM/Park Circus, 127 min, UK, Dir: John Glen

In his fifth film as Bond (the 12th film of the series), Roger Moore battles villainous Kristatos (Julian Glover) in an effort to locate a weapons system after it sinks in the Ionian Sea. Carole Bouquet (THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE) is the beautiful Bond girl here, and a stunning ski-slope chase is just one of the movie’s dynamic set-pieces.


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.
