So what makes this book so great? Well for starters Roger had an amazing sense of humor that shines through. I laughed out loud several parts during the book as he described his various adventures. Also he is an expert storyteller throughout the book, and along with stories about the Bond films he also had numerous fascinating stories about his early days in show business (particularly his experiences in Hollywood in the 50's and 60's). Also of interest are his numerous stories of his service as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador. This book will help you better appreciate a wonderful man who was much more than simply a 007!
We come from Cuba and I left the Island alone, still a child in 1968 when I traveled to the USA through Mexico. I arrived in the US in 1969 so by 1973 I spoke English but did not fully comprehend all the expressions of Shakespeare's language. Coming from Cuba, I had seen action films from France; "Fantomas" where a criminal mastermind with a thousand faces survives during amazing adventures. But when I saw Roger Moore in action, I became hooked on the best series of movies of all time.
Still remember the wonder created by Bond, we sat spell bound by the speed of all transportation used by Bond, by the ease with which he escapes such peril, and by the fun of watching him in some of the sequences of Live & Let Die.
So, when I received the book from Amazon, I immersed into a world written by one of my favorite characters and I am enchanted to have lived through his expressive emotion all that his life has entailed, a life for the most part, dedicated to bring to us some of the best moments in film history.
We own The Saint Collection, all of the Bond films and now, after reading his insight on many of the films, we have expanded our collection thanks to his input on how these evolved. The book takes the reader through experiences while filming Maverick; it travels the Roger Moore days from Warner Brothers to MGM... from Brazil, to the Caribbean, to the USA and Canada... It shares adventures that take place from London to France and the rest of Europe and Asia.
The book is written with candor, revealing a personality behind our hero that is respectful of others while filled with a childish and boyish desire to play tricks, always in search of living life to its fullest and to have fun at doing what he seems to have been born to do.
We read about the great friendships, David Niven for example. We are given the gift of understanding the relationships that evolve during the filming of our favorite movies and we learn about the character of the man we know as The Saint and James Bond.
Some of the details provided by Roger Moore are funny, others are deliciously naughty, others will bring tears to your eyes and many will leave you in admiration of the man who takes on the cause of UNICEF to bring hope to the lives of millions of children around the world.
It seems that Roger Moore has traveled all over the world and has interfaced at all levels of society, from Royalty to the poorest people on Planet Earth.
We are going to read some of the stories on particular films and then watch these to understand the "behind the scene" tid bits of information shared by the author.
If you want to delve into film history, there is no better way, if you are a James Bond fan... this book will "shake and stir" your soul. Don't miss it!
