9780061673894: My Word Is My Bond

Dashing, handsome and every inch the archetypal English gentleman, Roger Moore has starred in some of the most unforgettable films and celebrated television series of the last half century.

Who could forget the smooth-talking adventurer Simon Templar in The Saint? Or that rakish playboy Lord Brett Sinclair from The Persuaders? Roger Moore reigns supreme as the most debonair 007 and reprized the role of James Bond over seven blockbusting films. He has never written his autobiography - until now.

For the first time he shares his recollections of playing some of the world's most famous roles - and playing with some of the world's most legendary stars. He reminisces about his early days as a jobbing actor, and his first break, when he joined MGM studios. He talks of his family life, with memories of his childhood, as well as the happy and turbulent times of later years. He tells of his marriage and children and how he found love and contentment with his beautiful wife, Kristina.

Punctuated throughout with personal anecdotes about such luminaries as David Niven, Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck, Michael Caine and Sean Connery, and memories from the heyday of Hollywood, this frank, funny and disarmingly charming autobiography is as attractive and diverting as the man himself.

Review:

the charm and unsophisticated humour he brought to the role are apparent throughout his warm-hearted recollections of a long and distinguished career, in film and television, in the US and UK'--The Times, September 2008

'Moore's autobiography is the funniest film memoir since David Niven's The Moon's A Balloon.' -- Petronella Wyatt

4 stars: 'In this kind, funny autobiography, Moore does his best to debunk his image as an upper-crust all-action hero... so engaging... so genuine. This is a delightful book, crammed with anecdotes of the television and film industry from the Fifties to the Noughties.'--Mail On Sunday, October 2008

'stuffed with showbiz anecdotes'--The Sun, 3 October 2008

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 Magazine, December issue 2008

Like his good friend David Niven, he has managed to produce an amusing and racy memoir... Moore's wit and self-deprecation are evident on every page'--The Stage, 6 November 2008.

It's a lovely, ambling read'--The Times, 6 December 2008

'funny, frank and charming'--The Lady, 16 December 2008.
