Clifton James Sheriff JW Pepper
FSWL is sad to report the passing of Clifton James who so memorably portrayed Sheriff JW Pepper in two James Bond films, Live and Let Die (1973) and The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), both directed by the great Guy Hamilton. Our thoughts are with Clifton's family.

“So sad to hear about Joe’s passing, he was a good friend. I like all his work and I think he played Peter Franks perfectly. Over the years we did several memorabilia show and our tables were always next to each other. Great fun. He will be missed by all. RIP mate.” – Terry Mountain

Gloria Hendry (Rosie Carver in Live and Let Die) remembers Clifton:
