This is a delightful book, crammed with anecdotes of the television and film industry from the Fifties to the Noughties The Mail on Sunday Moore's autobiography is the funniest film memoir since David Niven's The Moon's A Balloon The Daily Mail Stuffed with showbiz anecdotes The Sun Funny, frank and charming The Lady There are stories galore... With a warm, winning mix of self-deprecation and praise for family, friends and colleagues, Sir Roger emerges as a figure every bit as dashing, but rather better-natured, than any he's played onscreen Empire Warm-hearted recollections of a long and distinguished career The Scotsman A lovely, ambling read The Times An amusing and racy memoir... Moore's wit and self-deprecation are evident on every page The Stage A man who can still snap a woman's knicker elastic with the flick of an eyebrow The Times --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
From the saint to maverick to James Bond, Roger Moore’s story is one of the last of the classic Hollywood lives as yet untold.
One of the most recognizable big-screen stars of the past half century, Sir Roger Moore played the role of James Bond longer than any other actor. Still, Bond was only one in a lifetime of roles stretching back to Hollywood’s studio era. Moore has seen and heard it all. He has hobnobbed with the glamorous and powerful, counting Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Seymour, and Cary Grant among his contemporaries and friends. He has outrageous stories about foulmouthed Milton Berle, surly Richard Burton, and kindhearted Richard Kiel, infamous as Bond enemy Jaws. The stories in My Word Is My Bond are priceless, a treasure trove of Hollywood history. Sir Roger Moore has left nothing out—especially the naughty bits.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
