Some cool shots of Roger back in 1973

These shots taken at a Davidoff press conference in london. Even with my mums sunglasses on he looks cool in a few shots you can see a Submariner I hope you enjoy these pics.

Agreed, Connery was a hard act to follow. Roger had been quoted saying he had to play his bond so differently to Sean so he wasnt trying look like he was impersonating. The result was a funnier smoother Bond which some liked and some didn't. As a child of the 70's I grew up with watching the Roger Moore films and have always been a fan.

Thats a very good characterization of how he played the role.

I think Brosnan took the humor to the next level (maybe too much so, but still quite entertaining).

Sean Connery was and still is the ultimate Bond. A tough act to follow indeed.
