007 - James Bond & Michael Moor

As the famous 007 film 'The Living Daylights' celebrates its 30th year since release it has given the head of RD Casting, Michael Moor, cause to reflect back on the good times he had on those 007 sets.

Seen below, Michael had the great guts to square up to the impeccable Roger Moore on camera and live to tell the tale! Im not sure he won this particular fight though or maybe he just let Roger win this one? Either way, both Roger and Mike looked great on screen.

And as far as cool memorabilia go, this has to be among one of the coolest! Check out Mike's personal invitation to the premiere of Octopussy, attended by the Prince and Princess of Wales themselves! They certainly don't hold premieres in that way anymore...
