I was not a fan of the late actor Sir Roger Moore's lighthearted portrayal of Ian Fleming's iconic character James Bond, but I was a huge fan of his earlier portrayal on TV of Leslie Charteris' cool character Simon Templar in The Saint when I was a teenager in the 1960s.
James Gilboy at thedrive.com offers a piece on Sir Roger Moore and his Volvo P1800 from The Saint on the one year anniversary of the actor's death.
Sir Roger Moore died a year ago today, May 23, 2017. The actor was best known for his role as a certain martini-swilling, suave secret agent, James Bond aka 007. Prior to playing the Bond character, he had the role of Simon Templar in The Saint. As one of the most successful British spy shows of the 1960s, Moore brought fame to the car of the show, the Volvo P1800 sports car, as much as the title role.
