James Bond (Timothy Dalton) first encounters the lovely Kara Milovy (Maryam d'Abo) at a concert hall in Bratislava. Bond is there to bring a KGB defector back to Britain while she is there to play the cello - or so it initially appears. The KGB general, too, is not what he seems, and 007 soon finds himself entangled in assassinations, arms deals and Afghanistan's mujahideen in this gritty Cold War thriller. Dalton's first film as the oft-shaken-but-never-stirred spy, THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS also served as the swan song for longtime Bond composer John Barry. With Joe Don Baker and John Rhys-Davies.

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).

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.
