3.0 out of 5 stars The name is Moore, Roger Moore, 23 Oct. 2008
This review is from: My Word is My Bond: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
Roger Moore's first autobiography, published just past his 80th birthday so it does reflect a long and varied actor's life.
The Saint, The Persuaders and of course James Bond will be the obvious associations, but Moore has more of an acting pedigree then I realised. An acting career that started off before the war and then gradually built up, mainly establishing himself in the US rather then the UK. He comes over with a dry wit and as an affable person, certainly not fond of himself and happy to accept his limitations and to appreciate he has been very lucky.
It is surprising how many of the famous generation of actors he knew although he chooses not to dish dirt and his anecdotes are fairly genial.
He spends more time on the individual Bond films then most of his other work as an actor and then finishes up with his work with UNICEF. His passion for UNICEF shines through, but although this is a very worthy cause, it is perhaps the least interesting aspect of the book.
So an easy read but not enough in it to raise it above the mildly entertaining.

Hi Nick, I'm disappointed this wasn't more interesting, as I'd hoped it might be. For me, David Niven's autobiography remains the best Hollywood memoir that I've read. Julia

Nick Brett says:
Yeah, I agree. Moore and Niven were friends and he mentions him a fair bit but overalll this was very bland.
Best autobiography I have read in years was Mixed Fancies by Brenda Blethwyn (probably spelt that wrong) - highly recommended!
Thanks for the comment!
cheers
Nick

This one was offered via Amazon Vine this month but I have to write some reviews before I can get more goodies. I'm thinking now I'm glad I didn't get it. Since there's no fan voting here (yet) let's see what I can do to help your ranking. Think I'll use my Tweedy account as well. Can't comment with that one though..
