It's a breezy memoir filled with amusing anecdotes, including a delicious one about Joan Collins. * Daily News * As you would expect from an actor who's never taken himself too seriously, One Lucky Bastard is charming and breezy, full of anecdotes, self-deprecating observations and salutes to many great actors who are no longer with us. . . .I loved every minute of it. * New York Post * "Roger Moore is as debonair on the page as he is on screen."--Boston Globe
