Live and Let Die
If you’re accustomed to the fast-paced, big-explosion, modern-day James Bond, then 1973’s Live and Let Die may seem a trifle odd—possibly even comical. The fight scenes are clunky and his then-high-tech gadgets make the iPhone seem like a supercomputer. But the film’s still infused with that classic 007 allure and chockfull of all the great trademarks: readily disposable henchmen, lengthy chase scenes, overly elaborate and inane methods to kill Bond—and him nailing every female who walks into frame. Plus, copious amounts of Jane Seymour’s 20-something-year-old cleavage throughout the movie. Add Paul McCartney’s title soundtrack hit and Roger Moore’s fluid suaveness, and this movie oozes lasting appeal.
