A Prince To the Manor .... born.

The late actor Roger Moore did possess that certain flair of regality that made you assume that he came from immense wealth or upper British royalty? He simply was handsome and commanded a presence ..that when the time came for him to assume the role of "James Bond" in the 1970's-1980's he didn't miss a beat. Films such as "Live and Let Die" , "A View to a Kill,"Octo-Pussy" and "For Your Eyes Only" are my favorites of his. I didn't know much of his personal life but his son's certainly took after him in the looks department. This is much better than most documentaries ..though this footage is rather dated.. I would think late 1980's or early 1990/91? It is interesting that he never gave up and continued to become a household name.. when the studio's couldn't place him in stable film work. I do recall him co starring in a "Spice Girl" movie back in 1997 since his Bond days.. ... he was a busy actor in the 1950's-2000's before he retired and became ill.

Important to all Saint fans as well as 007 movie fans to know the man we watch is a good person.

Roger Moore was a normal man doing a job like the rest of us except his job was to entertain us and I respect him more knowing how genuinely decent he was in his real life. We could use more people in the world who are highly thought of by their real-life friends and co-workers. Glad I watched this.

His portrayal of the man competed nicely with Jame Coburn's Flint and Dean Martin's Mat Helm ...

I grew up in the 60's and 70's. I grew up watching Roger Moore in movies and on TV. I am a die hard fan of James Bond and I must admit that Mr. Moore's rendition of the 007 was correct for the times. His portrayal of the man competed nicely with Jame Coburn's Flint and Dean Martin's Mat Helm yet his James Bond always stood taller and far more engaging. As a young adult I could not wait till the week turned and the Persuaders came around. The rope a dope between Mr. Moore and Mr. Curtis was such a delight and much fun to watch.

On another note, I was not aware of Sir Richard's philanthropic efforts and the selfless work that he has been doing and ever so quietly for the children everywhere. I felt wonderfully humbled yet delighted for having watched this short memoir.

A little insight into a private man
Verified purchase
Interesting if you are a fan of Roger Moore. I gather from this that Moore was well liked by most other actors. That he was easy to work with and considerate. He is apparently a very private person, one interviewee called him shy, consequently not a lot of his personal life is revealed in this documentary. The film does not even make a point of the fact that he was knighted for his work with UNICEF. The opinions of many of the people interviewed seem to be that he is underrated as an actor partially because he makes it look easy. Moore has an easy, self depreciating humor. At one point in the film he explains that the difference between his portrayals of the Saint and James Bond is that as the Saint he raised an eyebrow and as James Bond he didn't.
