Bond is back and he’s practically drawing his pension. Roger Moore’s final appearance was the 1984 blockbuster “A View To A Kill” and it’s not one of the best, hardly a fitting send off to the longest running Bond who had become synonymous with the character in the minds of the public.

Roger Moore had been against returning as Bond for this film but was persuaded to stay by Cubby Broccoli who felt that an established actor was needed to face up to competition from a returning Sean Connery in the rival Bond film “Never Say Never Again”, released in the same year.

John Glen made his Bond debut as director on this movie, Moore’s fifth and one of his best. It starts with a tender moment, Bond laying flowers at the grave of his wife Tracy, a nice piece of internal continuity, followed up by an appearance by Blofeld (at least that’s the implication, legal difficulties made it impossible to name the character on screen).
