James Bond is sent to stop a diabolically brilliant heroin magnate armed with a complex organisation and a reliable psychic tarot card reader.
“Live and Let Die” is a James Bond movie released in 1973. It was the eighth film in the James Bond franchise and the first to star Roger Moore as James Bond, taking over the role from Sean Connery.
In the movie, Bond is sent to investigate the activities of Mr. Big, a powerful drug lord who is using his wealth to fund international terrorism. Bond travels to New York, New Orleans, and the fictional Caribbean island of San Monique in his pursuit of Mr. Big, and is aided by Solitaire, a tarot card reader who is also working for Mr. Big.
The movie features a number of memorable action sequences, including a boat chase through the Louisiana bayou and a high-speed pursuit through the streets of New York City. The theme song, “Live and Let Die,” was performed by Paul McCartney and Wings and became a hit in its own right.
“Live and Let Die” was a commercial and critical success upon its release, and is still regarded as one of the most iconic James Bond movies.
