RIP Sir Roger Moore (1927-2017)
« on: May 24, 2017, 05:51:02 AM »
For those of us fans of "The Saint" and "The Persuaders" television shows of anothwr era, no one embodied the essence of suave and cool than the dapper Roger Moore.  In fact, Moore's first foray into television was as Simon Templar in the popular "The Saint" series. 

"The Persuaders" in which he starred with American actor Tony Curtis in the role of Brett Sinclair,  showcased the essence of 'cool' that Moore effortlessly came away as, in his own unique way, much as he had done in his previous series in "The Saint

When Moore took on the role of playing James Bond,  he brought a sort of fun campiness in his portrayals of 007, some of which are favourites amongst those who enjoyed that genre of  Bond films.  Surely a departure from the more serious '60's  Bond films of Sean Connery fame.

I enjoyed watching episodes of "The Saint" and some of the early Bond films.  Moore had the face to be funny, campy, cool or serious yet unmistakingly always looking as dapper as could be.  Anywhere, in any role, Roger Moore never disappointed.

Rest In Peace and thank you for some great entertainment.
