My Word is My Bond: The Autobiography

Author(s): Roger Moore


Roger Moore has been in the public eye for over half a century. Older audiences will recall him in his other, first, signature role, The Saint. A huge hit series in the 1960s, it was one of the most successful syndicated shows in television history. He made the role of Simon Templar his own - impossibly handsome, suave, sophisticated, coldly ruthless when he needed to be (but without wrinkling his impeccable hand-made suit). In short, the epitome of English style. But there was another unique quality under that sophisticated veneer that audiences fell in love with - a hint of wry and wicked humour, something he developed into an artform as Bond. While he always said he could never take the place of Sean Connery, Roger Moore gave his 007 the sense that he was thoroughly enjoying himself and so should you. He once said of his acting range: ÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂLeft eyebrow raised, right eyebrow raisedÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂàand ÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂAnd of course I do my own stunts. And I also do my own lying.ÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂàBut as we know he good reason not to ÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂæ Roger MooreÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs appeal crosses several generations: fans remember him in his various TV and movie roles from the 60s & 70ÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs, and today legendary status was assured when Amy Winehouse paid tribute to him in one of her Grammy-winning songs, ÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂYou Know IÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂm No GoodÃÂÃÂÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ.
