Live and Let Die
Probably the only 007 adventure to feature a phrase as optimistic as “when you were young and your heart was an open book”—of course, that’s the opening line of Paul McCartney’s theme song, Live and Let Die signaled a seismic shift in the world of James Bond. As a further sign of this ever-changing world in which we live, Roger Moore received his first license to kill in this 1973 film—beginning a run that makes him the actor to have portrayed Bond the longest. In Die he tackles the heroin trade led by Mr. Big (Yaphet Kotto). There were several first in this film: Gloria Hendry was the first African American Bond girl and it’s the first time Bond is wearing something other than the de rigeur Rolex; in this film, he sports a Pulsar—a watch that was as hip at the time as the idea of Moore as Bond
