His Word's His Bond

.(photo by Michael Bruckner)

On my way home from school today I heard Sir Roger Moore on "Talk of the Nation" on NPR.


He was being interviewed about his James Bond memoir. In the interview he shared this story:

Sir Roger had taken his eight year old son out to eat. While in the restaurant, the following conversation ensued:

Son: Daddy, could you beat up anyone in this restaurant?

Sir Roger: (After looking around and seeing that he was considerably younger than anyone there.) Yes son, I think I could.

Son: But Daddy, if James Bond was in here, could you beat HIM up?

Sir Roger: Son, I'M going to be James Bond.

Son: No daddy, I mean the REAL James Bond, Sean Connery!!!

And the COOLEST thing - - - I HEARD Roger Moore tell the story himself!!!

I heard that yesterday, too - that is just priceless. Out of the mouth of babes.

Although I have to say that Roger Moore is who I think of as the real James Bond.

I'm guessing that the reason you think of him as the REAL James Bond is your age - - - - you were too little or not alive when Sean Connery was.
