Roger Moore…in a good Bond film? Who knew? Well, most Bond experts, but also Macintosh & Maud Haven’t Seen What?!, now that we’ve seen this arguably classic spy film. There’s giant boats and nuclear submarines, a car that goes underwater, a gorgeous KGB agent and THE HORNIEST JAMES BOND OF ALL TIME. Not creepy horny, just HORNY. It’s adorable, and we love it. So join us for a discussion of Roger Moore’s best Bond outing, The Spy Who Loved Me!
