"The Saint" has joined the ranks of the Saints. ;)

My favorite single role of Moore's was when he played Clouseau after a plastic surgery job, to make him look like Roger Moore. It was a tribute to the late Peter Sellers and was brilliant.

The GREAT Sir Roger Moore. Whether he played "Simon Templar" in 'The Saint' or "James Bond", he performed each role with a suave and debonair style that was uniquely British.

Out of all of his acting roles, this was, and still is, one of my favorites:

Godspeed, Sir Roger, and thank you very, very much.

Another story here. One of the big take aways is that I did not know Rdger Moore was older than Sean Conery.

Probably my favorite Bond. Fabulous as "The Saint." Thanks for some memorable shows and movies.

I saw Live and Let Dies about 6 times in the theater the year it came out. On one of our family trips to the beach it had rained a couple of those days. My friend and I watched the movie at the local movie theater on those days. Good times!

He was a good Bond and wonderful as The Saint, but
the poster put in by Saginaw shows him as my favorite
of his roles: 'fflokes'.

If you have never seen this film and have the
opportunity to do so, DON'T MISS IT !

Godspeed and RIP, Sir Roger….

He played Bond during the mile wide lapels and polyester dreams that were the seventies. And he still looked good! RIP, sir.

He was always "my Bond" I grew up watching his films as my mum was a huge fan of him,(I was even named after him).

God speed Sir.

Cheers Roger.

He was my least favorite Bond but always brought entertaining charm and humor to all his roles. RIP.

Really liked his many roles over the years. Used to watch The Saint as a youngster. This thread has brought back many fun memories.

RIP

So many great movies, but it is Ivanhoe that is my earliest childhood memory. RIP!

RIP, thank you for my childhood memories at the movies

I raise a single eyebrow in salute to his passing…

As 007 Moore was handsome, debonair and quite the lady-killer in his white tux. Made me jealous. More than any other who played the role, he is what I pictured Bond to look like. Two of my favorite Bond films are 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and 'Octopussy.' He will be missed.

Old Wolfman25 May 2017 5:53 a.m. PST

And in "The Cannonball Run" where he played a man who thought he was Roger Moore. Rest easy,and thanks.
