Live and Let Die was the film that put Roger Moore on the map as 007 and had McCartney and George Martin on soundtrack duties. The film had so many memorable moments and not least Bond’s arch-nemesis Baron Samedi, which was down to the talents of the great Geoffrey Holder, who has sadly died aged 84, reports BBC News.
Geoffrey was a Tony-award winning actor, a dancer and choreographer, some of which is readily apparent in the film’s graveyard sequences. He was also a celebrated painter and composer.
Born in Trinidad and Tobago, his other notable roles were in the films Annie as Punjab, as well as roles in Doctor Dolittle alongside Rex Harrison and Woody Allen in Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask).
