Moonraker’s 30th anniversary

Hard to believe (at least for those of us who saw the initial theatrical release) but this is the 30th anniversary of Moonraker.

The fourth Roger Moore 007 movie often doesn’t get a lot of love (CLICK HERE for one example). Still, the movie has its fans who speak up for it on message boards.

The movie also is worth noting for other reasons. It was Bernard Lee’s final appearance as M. It was the 007 farewell for production designer Ken Adam. It sports an impressive John Barry score. And it was among the select few Bond films nominated for an Academy Award, in this case for special effects.

Anyway, like it or hate it, this is a significant anniversary. The trailer is below.

  1. One of my most beloved Bond films. Though I was born in 1990, it’s directly connected to my childhood since I saw it when I was eight years old thanks to the creation of the VHS, some months after becoming a Bond fan after watching “GoldenEye” on TV the same year. Happy Anniversary, “Moonraker”!
