Not a Bond fan, but still... definitely not a lesser celeb.

Sad.  Heartbreak

As a kind I loved to watch the Persuader on afternoon TV.
His early bonds were great too.

People laugh at him because of the slapstick that his Bonds turned into, but his early Bonds were really really good, and he was always fantastic as the Saint. Hell you could watch that TV series today, and enjoy it.

Rest in Peace. I always enjoyed watching your work.

He was the Bond I was initially exposed to, and yes, his later Bonds were terrible, but they weren't terrible because of him. He will be missed.

Never blame the actor for the writing. Moore was fantastic with what he had to work with. It's a sad day.

I am saddened by his passing. He was my first and favorite Bond. Even with the cheesy humor, he still inhabited the character.

Taking all that into consideration and giving it great thought, I stand by my position.

Never Say Never Again was the first Bond movie I ever saw (that I remember). Until I got older and knew better, he was my favorite Bond  swamp poop

He wasn't, that was Connery. The title was mocking him for coming back after he'd said he'd never play James Bond again.

The Saint was a revelation to me when I stumbled across it. He was so good, I understood why he was more than qualified to get Bond, and wish his Bond had been allowed to be/stay more like that earlier work. There was also a film called Ffolkes (apparently "North Sea Hijack" in the UK) which I enjoyed him in as well. It may have been an average flick, but he was memorable enough in it that it still comes to mind 35+ years later when I think of him.

Aww, I keep forgetting this happened and then stumbling over reminders. It sucks, he was pretty much my favorite Bond overall. My absolute fave was Brosnan in GoldenEye, but in terms of number of movies liked, definitely Moore.

The ridiculousness of it never really got to me too much...The first Bond I saw was Diamonds Are Forever, and I remember the scene where he beats a guy to death in an elevator, and swaps ID with him. The lift stops and the Femmy Fataley searches him for it, finds it, and exclaims 'Do you know who you killed? You killed James Bond!' I remember wondering, "Heeeeyyy, isn't he supposed to be a *secret* agent? How does SHE know which way they're going?!" I was never fussed about Connery Bond (heresy or not) so I didn't watch any more, but when I got into the Moore ones my mindset was that shit like battling steel-toothed giants in space or stopping Christopher Walken from blowing up Silicon Valley or getting alerted that his contact in India is there when he clues Bond in by PLAYING HIS FUCKING THEME MUSIC was just par for the course, and got along with it fine.

I didn't even realize until I saw GoldenEye and felt like Brosnan and Seen Been could actually kick your ass, maybe, that I realized that the earlier ones were a bit unecessarily goofy. Still my favs, though.

You're right- I think I was thinking of For Your Eyes Only. Looking at the timeline, that fits the age I remember.

Spy Who Loved Me is still genuinely good and fun. If they could have stayed in that wheelhouse he'd have gotten a lot more credit for his Bond.

He's also actually closer to the role as originally written in some ways than any other.
