LIVE AND LET DIE 1971


Live And Let Die, released in 1973, was Roger Moore’s (14 October 1927 – 23 May 2017) first film as James Bond. The change of actor saw Eon Productions capture a large number of stills promoting Moore in the role, some of which were replicated by actor Daniel Craig forty-two years later in SPECTRE (2015). In addition, there are some amazing stills of the cast behind the scenes, such as Jane Seymour and Geoffrey Holder (1 August 1930 – 5 October 2014) publicising the film on location in Jamaica. Look out for a promotional still of Roger Moore in James Bond author Ian Fleming’s Jamaican home Goldeneye. The archive also documents Moore’s introduction to the world’s press as 007 at London’s Dorchester Hotel on the 2 August 1972. The stills photographer is listed as George Whitear. Terry O’Neill also photographed stills for the film.
