Roger Moore’s James Bond: The best and worst
A look at the most — and least — memorable bad guys, babes, and Bonds in Roger Moore’s 007 oeuvre.
Christopher Lee’s Scaramanga (in Golden Gun) had it all: an island lair, a pint-size henchman, and a third nipple!
We love us some Yaphet Kotto, but Live and Let Die‘s Dr. Kananga/Mr. Big is merely a diplomat who deals heroin. Yawn.
Maud Adams was so nice, she bedded Bond twice. First in Golden Gun, then as the titular — and age-appropriate — Octopussy.
Carole Bouquet’s a looker, but her comatose acting in For Your Eyes Only is one-upped by a talking parrot. No joke.
The Spy Who Loved Me, hands down. KGB temptress Barbara Bach, Jaws’ first appearance, and 007’s greatest ski stunt.
Moonraker. A.k.a. Bond in Space. Cheesy sci-fi F/X, lame slapstick, and Jaws showing his warm, gooey center. Abort.
