||A View to a Kill represents the farewell bow of two long-time Bond film actors: Lois Maxwell, who portrayed Miss Moneypenny in all fourteen official movies from Dr. No to this one, and Roger Moore. While Moore's stamp on Bond was never as memorable as Sean Connery's, seven pictures and thirteen years gave him the time and opportunity to re-shape the British agent in his own image -- something he did with the likes of The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, and For Your Eyes Only -- the best entries of his tenure. But all eras end, and A View to a Kill lowered the curtain on this one, opening the door for Timothy Dalton to take the role...A View to a Kill concludes Roger Moore's reign as 007 on a significantly higher level than it began (with Live and Let Die), leaving all that the actor brought to the role -- both good (his sly charm) and bad (his fatuousness) -- to posterity. Unlike Connery, Moore never said "never again", but, despite his fans' wishes, it's highly improbable that he'll ever come back for another engagement. A View to a Kill is the last time this Bond will be in our sights.
