Former 007 Sir Roger Moore Gives Skyfall The Bond Stamp Of Approval


The torch of James Bond has been passed to many actors since the first spy film debuted in 1962, and according to a former 007, the franchise just keeps getting better.

Sir Roger Moore, who boasts the longest run as the international man of mystery (from 1973 until 1985), has seen the most recent Bond movie, "Skyfall," and had nothing but praise for the latest installment.

"In my opinion it is the best, best Bond of all," Moore told People of the new movie, which opened in theaters on Friday. "And Daniel Craig, I am full of admiration for him."

Moore, whose seven Bond films include classics like "The Spy Who Loved Me," "Octopussy," "For Your Eyes Only," and "Live and Let Die," opted not to reveal his favorite Bond girl, but did share his picks for best Bond song.

"There are two – ‘Live And Let Die,' which I think is a great piece of work, and a wonderful arrangement by Sir George Martin, and ‘Nobody Does It Better,' by Marvin Hamlisch," he told the mag. "That was really something."

Adding, "And ‘The Spy Who Loved Me,' I think, says all there is to know about Bond."

"Skyfall," with Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Judi Dench and Javier Bardem, is in theaters now.
