Moore, Roger with Gareth Owen. My Word Is My Bond: A Memoir. Collins: HarperCollins. Nov. 2008. c.352p. index. ISBN 978-0-06-167388-7. $27.95. FILM~Verdict: Actor Moore reveals himself to be a natural storyteller, employing his self-deprecating wit to great effect in behind-the-scenes accounts of The Saint and the James Bond franchise. There's no dirt dishing, but film fanatics will still eat it up. [For more on Bond, see Neal Wyatt's recent RA Crossroads and Raya Kuzyk's Movie Tie-In Madness: Bond, Button, and McCarthy.-Ed.] Background: In this perhaps inevitably titled memoir, Moore reminisces about his life and 60-year acting career. A sickly only child from a close-knit family in South London, Moore has really enjoyed his life and success without becoming jaded. He had an artistic bent and might have been an animator but was fired from his job as a trainee for failing to deliver rushes from the film lab to his company's office. It may come as a surprise that Moore is not only an actor but also a TV and movie director. In recent years, Moore has devoted a great deal of his time to the charity UNICEF.-Diana Lawsky, North Bergen, NJ.
