Sean Connery had set the bar high, and George Lazenby, with mighty
flair and a valiant heart, had given it his best. Now it was
Roger’s turn. He knew his time was now, and he reigned over seven
movies as James Bond with exceptional skill and comic timing laced
with a stiletto vengeance. He knew his comedy, he knew who he was
and he played onstage and off with an easy grace and charm. He
knew that we knew.
“He knew that we knew” is the phrase I’ve been searching for for years to describe Roger Moore’s take on Bond. Just perfect.
