THE WATERMARK AND THE SIGNATURE ON THE IMAGE WILL NOT BE PRESENT ON AN ORIGINAL PRINT.
David Steen: “Filming for Roger’s first Bond movie, ‘Live and Let Die’ began in New Orleans and moved on to Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Cubby Broccoli asked me to spend some time there building up a portfolio of the actors, especially Roger and Jane Seymour.
This shot was a natural spread, the whole movie exuded glamour and this pose of Roger’s summed it up…I love the way the towel barely covers him, suggesting there is nothing underneath.
Roger is a fun guy and will do anything for a laugh. And he’s a superb raconteur, with a gift for words, a bounty of anecdotes, a store of jokes and is genuinely nice to everyone. He also has a wicked sense of humour. I was in Bangkok for the filming of ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’. Christopher Lee played the baddy. A group of crew and cast regularly ate dinner together at the end of a day’s work. This had a party atmosphere with Roger entertaining the gang. On one occasion Christopher Lee stood up from the table announcing he was going to bed. ‘Did you know,’ confided Roger as Christopher departed, ‘that he sleeps in a coffin?’
