James Bond 50: Jumping Crocodiles


As the world’s most famous spy celebrates 50 years as a movie star, the time has come to celebrate everything we love about him. In 22 blog posts, I’ll find something in every Bond movie, from Dr. No (1962) to Quantum of Solace (2008), that’s worth illustrating. Yes, even the bad ones.

The eighth Bond movie introduced Roger Moore as the third actor to play 007. Unfortunately, it is also one of the series’ least memorable efforts with a particularly weak villain (although his explosive demise is… interesting). Still, it does have Paul McCartney & Wings’s wonderful title tune, the first rock act in the series, and the clip above where Bond finds a daring way to escape hungry crocodiles. In later entries, Moore’s 007 would also battle anacondas and tigers.

My 2006 review of Live and Let Die.
