Description

A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTOBIOGRAPHY

The quintessential suave hero, Roger Moore has had an extraordinary career that has spanned seven decades, from early television to the golden age of Hollywood and on to international superstardom.

Dashing, handsome and every inch the archetypal English gentleman, he is unforgettable as The Saint, as Lord Brett Sinclair in The Persuaders! and, of course, as James Bond, making seven blockbusting films as arguably the most debonair of the 007s.

For the first time, Roger shares his recollections of playing some of the world's most famous roles alongside a host of legendary stars. With myriad stories from his personal life - from his childhood in London and experiences during the Second World War, to the happy and turbulent times in his later life. Along with anecdotes about his encounters with the stars and his wonderful memories from the heyday of Hollywood, My Word is My Bond is as frank, funny and disarmingly charming as the legend himself.

Review quote

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 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
