I was trying to download another scene from Rock Hudson's lengthy beefcake-stuffed career to share this morning here on the 91st anniversary of his blessed birth but the clip was taking too long to download - it wasn't going to be morning anymore by the time I had it ready to go! - so here we'll use this scene of him and Robert Lansing taking a steam together in the 1963 war film A Gathering of Eagles instead since it's right here. Happy Rock Day!
"First watch Moonraker, because it's Jaws in love and it's also really sexy. Then watch Octopussy because Louis Jourdan is the villain and it's also really sexy. RIP, Sir Roger Moore."
"Live and Let Die is amazing. It's the blaxploitation Bond! It has Jane Seymour as a virginal tarot card reader! It has voodoo! It has Yaphet Kotto! "
""Golden Gun" has one of the alltime best villains. Christopher Lee manages to be genuinely funny and genuinely frightening at the same time. Him just putting the gun together is a lesson in how to underplay a scene but still be the one everyone's watching."
"A View to a Kill is only worth watching for Grace Jones and the sheer terror Roger Moore is barely concealing during their love scene together. RIP my favourite Bond."
--- With the passing of Roger Moore I asked y'all to offer up one of his Bond flicks to watch - I've never seen a one! - and I got many fine suggestions. Which would you pick?
