The Man Who Was James Bond ...

R.I.P Martin Grace .

James Bond stuntman and stunt double Martin Grace has passed away at the age of 67 on 29-01-10 .

Mr Grace was a stunt performer and co-ordinator, and was Roger Moore's stunt double through most of the Bond films. His first 007 credit was on "You Only Live Twice" in 1967, before becoming Moore's regular stunt double from "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977) up until his departure from the series in "A View To A Kill" (1985).

Since I was planning to follow up my first entry on the 1983 Octopussy shooting exclusive pictorial, I decided to slightly modify its angle to pay hommage to the man .

So do remember the man who make Roger Moore 's 007 look invincible while browsing on that page .

Pictures taken during the 1rst unit filming at Petersborough by September 82', at the Nene Valley Railway , where most of the Train action sequences were shot .

Many thanks to Ross Hendry ,for kindly giving me copies of the photos he took this very day - and permission of using them .
Those pics have all been embedded with a micro dot ( courtesy of Photoshop ) , enabling me to trace them ,should anyone decide to reproduce the pics without permission . You've been warned .
