Watch Roger Moore in action in all seven of his James Bond films – Los Angeles Times

Roger Moore wasn’t the first actor to play James Bond on the big screen, but he was the man who played 007 the longest.

Moore, who died Tuesday at age 89 after a battle with cancer, was one of six stars to take on the role of the iconic British spy. Sean Connery was the first to tackle the part, and Moore took over the franchise in 1972. He would continue to appear as Bond until 1985, starring in a total of seven films about the MI6 agent.

Here, we remember Moore’s entries in the long-running Bond screen canon:

“Live and Let Die” (1973)

Based on Ian Fleming’s novel of the same name, “Live and Let Die” put Bond up against a new villain: Mr. Big, a Harlem drug lord who ran a chain of Fillet of Soul restaurants across the U.S. But Mr. Big is actually just an alter ego for Dr. Kananga — the ruler of the Carribbean island San Monique, which is home to secret heroin poppy farms.
