Older Lazenby for Gardner's Bond...I only now realise how that suits the image I had of him.

Faulkes and Boyd: a Moore Dalton hybrid


What exactly is a Moore Dalton hybrid. Is that anything like a Sean Connery Woody Allen hybrid?

I shudder to think what that's like.

That's Dalton with the typical Moore pimple and one eyebrow raised all the time.

Hey Alex? I'll take "oh my god no" for three hundred.

I think of Moore with Gardner. He seems much much more genteel than Fleming's Bond.

As he was playing 007 at the time I read them all, I pictured Dalton, or at least a composite based on him.  I've actually never been able to land successfully on a single actor in my mind while reading any Bond, regardless of the author, but tend to create a loose avatar in my mind of whoever is the current screen personification.

Having just read For Special Services (my first Gardner Bond), I realized that I picture him as basically being an older (and, honestly, somewhat blander) version of Fleming's Bond. I suppose I might revise my opinion after reading more of Gardner's Bond.

 

Fleming's Bond himself I've always viewed as a distinct character in his own right...but I feel that of the actors, Dalton came closest to matching him.

I've always pictured either Dalton or Brosnan for Gardner's Bond; a little bit older and world weary, but very experienced and capable

I am in my sixties, so I "usually" see Sean Connery.  I have read all the books, but I have read a few books trying to picture my favorite actor - Cary Grant.

Since LICENCE RENEWED was published right in the middle of the Moore era - and in my country with a b/w Moore photograph on the cover, complete with strands of what you could imagine as grey hair at the temples - I used to think of Gardner's Bond as a 'serious' version of Moore. Perhaps at times mixed with the generic 'tall-dark-handsome' faceless image of the odd illustration.
