Live and Let Die (1973)

Enter Roger Moore— the Connery-Blessed 70s Successor of the James Bond franchise— Just as sauve, Smart, and Sexually SOCIOPATHIC as his predecessor.

Regan Humphrey

Roger Moore’s entrée into James Bond-dom is met with a nod to 70s blaxploitation in yet another dangerous mission, involving a deadly, international plot and beautiful women. After three MI6 agents are killed mysteriously in three separate locations, within hours of one another, her majesty’s secret service sends Agent 007 (Roger Moore) to investigate one Dr. Kananga (Yaphet Kotto), the dictator of San Monique, a Caribbean island nation. In his quest to uncover Dr. Kananga’s scheme, Bond must face the danger of New York City gangsters, voodoo, and the American south.
