This week, we return to our James Bond series with the first installment of the Roger Moore era, Live and Let Die! Moore was the longest tenured actor to play Bond (this is the first of seven films featuring him as the British super spy). Chrys VanDerKamp joins us once again to unpack a film featuring some really fun action and some really problematic racism and sexism. We also take a look at some less than spectacular science and explore the strange rules of psychic sexual contact exhibited in the film. Eventually, we even talk about the late Sir Roger Moore a little bit!
Next up, we follow Sir Roger Moore to The Cannonball Run!
