Roger Moore Saved Jane Seymour's Life On Bond Set


Jane Seymour Bond Live And Let Die

SIR ROGER MOORE saved actress Jane Seymour's life on the set of Bond movie Live And Let Die when he grabbed hold of her as she was about to plunge into a gaping hole in the ground.

The two stars were shooting scenes for the dramatic climax of Moore's debut 007 outing in 1973 when a mistake by a crew member left Seymour teetering on the edge of a "chasm".

Quick-thinking Moore grabbed the actress by her hair and yanked her to safety with seconds to spare - and she repaid his good deed by leaving him writhing in agony when she landed on his lap.

Live And Let Die Tops Bond Songs Poll


Live And Let Die Bond

Wings song Live And Let Die has been named the best Bond theme of all time.

The track, composed by Sir Paul MCCartney and his late wife Linda for the opening and closing credits of Sir Roger Moore's debut outing as 007 in 1973, has topped a new Bbc Radio poll.

Carly Simon's Nobody Does It Better - the theme tune to 1977's The Spy Who Loved Me - comes in second place, and Goldfinger by Dame Shirley Bassey is third.

The survey was commissioned as part of the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Bond movie, Dr. No, next month (Oct12).

Mccartney Blocked Yankovic Spoof


Sir Paul McCartney Live And Let Die Weird Al Yankovic

Sir Paul McCartney blocked a parody of his hit track Live And Let Die by Weird Al Yankovic because the funnyman wanted to rename it "Chicken Pot Pie".

Yankovic has famously spoofed many well-known songs during his career, including Beat It by Michael Jackson and Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit.

He typically pens a similar-sounding song and adjusts the lyrics to mock the original artist - but strict vegetarian MCCartney refused to green-light Yankovic's parody of the Wings track because of its meat-based title.

The funnyman tells Espn's The B.S. Report, "He didn't want a song used in any context that would be supposedly promoting the consumption of animal flesh... It's a valid reason and I get it. And I hate it when people put him on the list of humourless guys, because that wasn't the case at all. In fact, he said, 'Think of any other subject and I'm happy to OK it'."

Moore's 'Birth-like' Film Premiere Nerves


Roger Moore Live And Let Die James Bond Sean Connery

Legendary actor SIR Roger Moore has Iikened the nerves he felt at the premiere of Live And Let Die to being at the birth of his children.
Moore made his debut as suave secret agent James Bond in the highly-anticipated 1973 movie, and was worried how he would fare in comparison to his predecessor SIR Sean Connery.
The 78-year-old says, "The only time I felt any trepidation was about an hour before LIVE AND LET DIE.
"But after 15 minutes I began to think of the experience like having a baby. Your wife's in labour, the baby's coming out and there's b**ger all you can do about it."

McCartney's Pet Deer


Sir Paul McCartney Live And Let Die Carla Lane

Sir Paul McCartney is carrying on the animal-loving legacy of his late wife LINDA by providing a friendly living environment for rescued deer.

The Live And Let Die hitmaker, 63, opened his Sussex, England, estate to the wild creatures after his screenwriter and sanctuary owner pal Carla Lane asked for his help.

Lane, who wrote hit UK sitcoms BREAD and BUTTERFLIES, says, "Paul is absolutely an animal man. At the sanctuary we get called out for deer that have been in car accidents. And when we save a deer - although it's only happened twice so far - we go to Paul's woodland to release it back into the wild."

Shock Turnaround As McCartney Goes Commercial


Sir Paul McCartney Jet Live And Let Die

Former BEATLE Sir Paul McCartney has changed his mind about his music being used in commercials - and authorised the use of 20 of his hits in TV adverts.

McCartney slammed the use of Beatle song REVOLUTION in a NIKE advertisement several years ago, claiming it "cheapened the song".

But the ex-WINGS frontman has changed his tune, announcing that a sampler of 20 post-Beatle songs, including Jet, Live And Let Die and SILLY LOVE SONGS is to be sent to advertising companies immediately.

Roger Moore Pierce Brosnan Live And Let Die Ewan McGregor

Former JAMES BOND star SIR Roger Moore's son GEOFFREY has branded COLIN FARRELL "too short" to replace Pierce Brosnan as the next superspy.
