It is significant that Roger Moore makes his first screen appearance as James Bond wearing, part, if not all of his monogrammed pyjama/dressing gown ensemble, when M followed by Miss Moneypenny, pay him an unexpected early morning visit in his appartment at the beginning of the film. Bond's semi-naked companion that evening, 'missing' Italian agent Miss Caruso [Madeline Smith] is seen wrapped in Bond's pyjama top when she is spotted by Miss Moneypenny, running out of Bond's bedroom to hide from M, in 007's closet. According to Raymond Benson, this scene is ...one of the more enjoyable in the film..., providing Roger Moore with his first Bond girl in his début as James Bond and also allowing Bond fans into James Bond's bachelor pad for only the second time in the series of Bond films. The classic Bond one-liner Sheer magnetism, darling which he delivers whilst still dressed in his dressing gown and pyjama bottoms, after unzipping Miss Caruso's hastily pulled-on dress, with his specially adapted Rolex (see lot 145) is one of the film's best lines.
According to the vendor, the pyjamas, robe and slippers were a gift from Roger Moore to a friend, actress Christine Kijko.
