While the Bond series began in the 60s, much (but not all) of the icon symbolism was born in the series’ run in the 70s and early 80s (golden gun anyone?). The man that was the Bond who went toe to toe with a shark, wrestled with golden guns, and even had time get a little action in space is none other than Sir Roger Moore. Moore’s run a 007 ran from 1973– 1985 and included such Bond classics as The Man With the Golden Gun, Moonraker, and our personal favorite Octopussy. Moore’s take on Bond brought an almost whimsical charm that helped make many of the outlandish scenarios that he encountered both entertaining and refreshing. Like Connery before him, Moore’s take on the character helped to redefine Bond for a new generation of moviegoers.
