Matt Helm Meets James Bond

It's great to get a chance to see two older spies, Matt Helm (Dean Martin) and James Bond (Roger Moore) meet up. I don't know much about the details behind this picture. I know it's a Friar's Club event in 1986. Dean Martin was one year away from the tragic death of his son. Roger Moore had done his last Bond movie the year before this. For those who didn't know or had forgotten, both of these men had played in The Cannonball Run back in 1981. It's awesome to see two of my favorite stars together in a picture. I hope you like it.

P.S. By the way, this is my 300th post here at The Dino Lounge. I'm so thrilled about that. I can't believe that I've made it this far. I do hope that all of you have been enjoying what I've been posting here. I do always love reading your comments. Thanks for all your support and encouragement. Cheers!
