20 Things You Didn’t Know About Live And Let Die (1973)
Live And Let Die (1973) was a fantastic debut for Sir Roger Moore as James Bond.
Often hailed as one of the most classic and memorable Double-0 Seven movies, Moore’s first Bond film continues to capture hearts and imaginations alike with its distinctive plot and truly mesmerising visuals.
When James Bond is sent to investigate the deaths of three British agents, he is launched into the world of voodoo and drug trafficking, coming up against Dr. Kananga (Yaphet Kotto), the Prime Minister of Caribbean island nation, San Monique, who is in league with US-based crime kingpin, Mr Big and uses the unique soothsaying powers of Solitaire (Jane Seymour) through her Tarot cards to keep one step ahead of his enemies.
Tracking the plot across New York City, San Monique, and New Orleans, Double-0 Seven starts to uncover the truth and grows close to smashing the drug plot with the aid of his CIA ally, Felix Leiter (Moore's personal friend, David Hedison).
There is plenty about the creation of this truly flamboyant and beloved Bond adventure that can slip through the net, but this list is guaranteed to give you “something in heads”.
