The Naked Face is a shocking and suspense-filled thriller that takes Roger Moore (The Spy Who Loved Me) out of the world of James Bond and into the world equally dangerous and violent. He stars as a doctor targeted for murder in this gripping film version of the Sidney Sheldon best-selling novel wonderfully directed by Bryan Forbes (Seance on a Wet Afternoon). Dr. Judd Stevens (Moore), an affluent Chicago doctor, suddenly finds himself trapped in a waking nightmare, surrounded by shadowy figures bent on his destruction. Who are these mysterious figures and what are their sinister motives? As the mystery deepens, the web tightens around him and when the police appear to have deserted him, Dr. Stevens is forced to confront his would-be assassins alone. The all-star cast includes Rod Steiger, Elliott Gould, Anne Archer and Art Carney.

Roger Moore plays Dr Stevens, a Chigago psychiatrist who's suddenly put in serious danger with several attempts on his life. In steps the local plod to investigate, lead by two detectives played by Rod Steiger and Ellliot Gould. However Steigers senior detective holds a grudge agaist Dr Stevens because he gave evidence in court following the murder of his partner which resulted in the perp being successfully being locked up because of his mental state rather than prison. With the bodies mouting up, the cops do their best to put the poor Dr Stevens in frame as prime suspect instead of looking at the investigation objectively.
Sure, the film looks a little visually dated and the plot from the cops point of view has more holes than the local WCs in the park which are peppered with a perverts paradise of viewing stations. But The Naked face is packed full of suspense and some excellent twists and turns that you won't see coming. Not in the way you may think anyway.
Roger Moores acting is pretty much perfect, showcasing how good he was and how largely overlooked he was outside of Bond. His performance in The Naked Face is as good as The Man Who Haunted Himself and nearly as good as Gold. Putting simply, Roger Moore is a legend and one of the best Brit actors we have ever had, and continue to watch on our screens.
Am not sure you get the same feeling when you read the book, but I found the whole outcome of the story to be rubbish, talk about an anti-climax?, plus the ending scene was laughable.. But overall am glad I watched this film, I mean Roger Moore was pure class. Loved him.
The DVD is region locked, so you will need a region free DVD player. The screen ratio is in 1.85:1, and you do get English Subtitles, but sadly no bonus features.
