For the third Roger Moore Film Festival we’re turning to Roger’s first outing as Bond, Live and Let Die (1973). With its exploitation of the blaxploitation genre and Wings title sequence soundtrack it’s a great early 70s period piece.
Drugs and race relations also feature in The Wild Geese (1978). Roger Moore is Lt Shawn Flynn, a gun for hire who, in a spot of bother due to his anti narcotic principles, accepts an assignment from his former Army Colonel to join a band of mercenaries. As the Wild Geese attempt to rescue the imprisoned President of a southern African nation, colonial politics go under a 1970s microscope. As you might expect for a film starring Roger, Richard Harris and Richard Burton the only thing higher than the body count is that of the whiskey bottles – it ain’t half hot mum!!
Doors open at 13.00, for a 13.30 start.
Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
