Live and Let Die.
Sean Connery was done with Bond and there was a push by the studio have the next actor be an American, while the producers pushed back, saying that Bond was British and would stay that way. So who would become the next iteration of this character and what would be his place in this every changing world which we live in, would have to be figured out quickly to keep the franchise alive.
In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by fellow 00 agents Christy Morris and John Champion to talk about Live and Let Die. We discuss continuing Bond, Moore's first outing, sticking out, a new direction, a topical villain, Bond women, J.W. Pepper and the bayou, theme, music and our ratings.
