Trailer Tuesday: The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)

Card sharp!
Roger Moore is James Bond in ‘The Man with the Golden Gun,’ 1974

Here’s a trailer featuring the 1970s James Bond, Roger Moore, in The Man with the Golden Gun. Sure, we had (the best 007), Sean Connery, in 1971’s Diamonds Are Forever, but from 1973 through 1985 – it was all Moore in the tux and Aston Martin. Moore did a fine job but he’s no Connery. Yeah, I’m one of those Bond fans.

The Man with the Golden Gun features Christopher Lee as baddie, Scaramanga and Britt Ekland and Maud Adams as the prerequisite beautiful and sexy Bond girls. Hervé Villechaize also appears in a slightly less sexy role as Nick Nack and you can see where the producers of Fantasy Island got their casting and costuming ideas for the actor. Fire up the trailer.
