Roger Moore ´ 3 free read summary Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Roger Moore review Last Man Standing: Tales from Tinseltown O him by a host of stars and filmmakers including Tony Curtis Sean Connery Michael Caine David Niven Frank Sinatra Gregory Peck John Mills Peter Sellers Michael Winner Cubby Broccoli and many Wonderfully entertaining and laugh out loud funny these extraordinary tales from the world of the movies is vintage Moore at his very be. I m a huge fan of Sir Roger who not only enjoyed a lengthy and successful career in show business but has worked as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF following on from him hanging up his PPK back in the mid 1980s Its probably fair to say that he has become a popular and well respected national treasure as he ages gracefullyWhen I grew up in the 1970s and 80s Moore was a huge star in between making the Bond movies which I grew up watching he also made some excellent actions movies specially designed to watch with your Dad Gold Sea Wolves North Sea Hijack Wild Geese and Cannonball Run for example not to mention TV series such as The Saint and my personal favourite The Persuaders his third outing as an author Tales from Tinseltown its clear that his off screen life was almost as interesting as what happened to him while on set The book lives up to its title sub title Last Man Standing a uote from Frank Sinatra Who s going to be left to turn the light off Roger hopes it will be him as its essentially Rodge relaying decades worth of anecdotes to Gareth Owen He s never nasty or malicious when he name checks practically every movie star from the 1950s onwards The tales are all relayed in a lighthearted manner along with some candid photographs These snaps highlight Rodge modelling high fashion over the decades along with him clowning around my personal favourite is Peter Sellers painting Rogers toenails for some forgotten reasonThe book itself is split into eight chapters1 The Fun and Feisty Leading Ladies2 The Pinewood Years3 Stage struck4 On set Tales5 The Good Guys and a Few Rascals6 The Rat Pack7 The Creative Geniuses8 The ProducersFrom time to time Sir Roger adds a few thoughts which didn t make it into his autobiography and the mood dips as he reminisces about friends who have died gone to that great cutting room in the sky as he says but on the whole is an upbeat entertaining giggle from beginning to end I also like the fact that Roger knows that he s been lucky for three reasons the secrets of his success he looked like a hero can remember lines and work cheaply Thankfully Moore is very much still standing and that is something which we should be very grateful indeed highly recommended
