Episode Summary

Sir Roger Moore
Sir Roger Moore was one of the keynote speakers at the Oxonian Society's 2006 annual black tie gala.Sir Roger Moore, KBE, is known for his suave, handsome, unflappable, witty demeanor as James Bond. To date, Sir Roger is the longest-serving James Bond. Ian Fleming created James Bond as an agent of Her Majesty's Secret Service. James Bond holds code number "007." The 'double-O' prefix indicates his discretionary license to kill in the performance of his duties. Sir Roger was in such James Bond classics such as "The Man with the Golden Gun," "The Spy Who Loved Me," "Moonraker," "For Your Eyes Only," "Octopussy," "A View to a Kill," and "Live and Let Die."Sir Roger is known for his classic scenes with M's Secretary - Miss Moneypenny, his customary beverage order, "A martini, shaken, not stirred," and racing his Aston Martin DB5. Each film begins with what is known as the James Bond gun barrel sequence, which introduces agent 007. A gun barrel is seen from the assassin's perspective - a side-on view of James Bond walking, who quickly turns and shoots. The scene then reddens (signifying the spilling of the would-be assassin's blood), the gun barrel dissolves to a white circle, and the film begins. Sir Roger provided a fascinating address on UNICEF and his distinguished acting career - Oxonian Societymoreless
