Ariadne Massa interviews Roger Moore in today's Times. At one point she has this to say about the former Bond actor:
"Strangely enough, The Man with the Golden Gun has never liked guns and the image of him holding a weapon is not one he is particularly keen on promoting, especially since he did not wish to come across as a gun-totting hero with the younger generation."
There must be something about Times journalists (present or past) and India. At first I thought Massa's was slip, a typo - you see. "Gun-totting" instead of "gun toting" just involves an extra shake on the "t" doesn't it. But then a quick google to dispel any doubts turns up a surprising result. The "totting" error is in fact quite common in Kerala, India where the correspondents insist on the double-t. Ah well... still... Moore seems to have enjoyed his stay.
