My Word Is My Bond
Dashing, handsome and every inch the archetypal English gentleman, Roger Moore has starred in some of the most popular films and celebrated television series of the last half century. For the first time he takes us behind the scenes of playing some of the world's most famous roles - and playing with some of the world's most legendary stars.
Mention the name Roger Moore and the name James Bond almost inevitably follows. After all, he dominated the big screen as the world's most famous spy for seven missions, more than any other 007. But before joining Her Majesty's secret service Roger Moore was already an international star thanks to his other signature role as Simon Templar in 'The Saint' one of the most successful syndicated series in television history.
Whether you know him and love him for these unforgettable roles or his many other performances over the years, there's no doubt that Roger Moore is a living legend. In My Word is My Bond he looks back on a brilliant career and life with characteristic wit from his London childhood, including being evacuated at the onset of the Second World War, to his Hollywood career, his battle with prostate cancer and the inspiration he has gained from working for UNICEF.
He shares the ups and downs of his days as a jobbing actor to his first big break, being signed to MGM studios towards the end of the contract system and playing alongside screen legends Elizabeth Taylor, Lana Turner, Glenn Ford, Debbie Reynolds and many others.
Punctuated throughout with personal anecdotes about friends and fellow actors such as Noel Coward, David Niven, Cary Grant, Richard Harris, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck, Michael Caine and Sean Connery, this frank and funny autobiography is as charming and disarming as the man himself.
And as his millions of fans already know nobody does it better.
