    1. As an actor I have always enjoyed Sir Roger Moore in his various parts His take on 007 for me is enjoyable as the grumpy miser that currently holds the role who is of a bruiser compared to the Rogers British gentleman Rogers halo has always been pleasurable even if he never has been my favorite Saint Rogers movie life is the center of this novel full of a large collection of anecdotes about the folks within the movie industry some better known than others Rogers remembrance of so many great ch [...]


    2. I will start by saying that I m a huge fan of Sir Roger and his autobiography, My Word Is My Bond , is one of my all time favourite reads so when I found out about this book, shortly after seeing him in An Evening With last year, I pre ordered it straight away Subtitled Tales From Tinseltown , it does exactly what it says, with Sir Roger assisted by Gareth Owen relating anecdotes that have either happened to him, or that have happened to friends of his and he has a lot of friends Told in his ini [...]


    3. ONE LUCKY BASTARD, or perhaps LAST MAN STANDING as it may be known when the official edition is released, is the latest book of memoirs from Sir Roger Moore He, like so many people, delights in telling tales about his working life and some of the people with which he has worked Unlike you or me, Sir Roger has managed to know the majority of the most famous people in and around the international movie industry When you read this it might feel as if he is name dropping on purpose, but he is just t [...]


    4. Roger s 3rd book is heavily made up of a collection of show business anecdotes as opposed to his previous memoir, which was or less his life story with many lively anecdotes sprinkled throughout Many of the anecdotes are quite amusing although some are forgettable and all too brief All in all it was a fun light read Roger s wit and charm resonate throughout, and I would recommend it to anyone who has already enjoyed his memoir A couple of the same stories are repeated but there s plenty of new [...]


    5. Audiobook, I only wished Sir Roger narrated it An insight into that tennis shorts wearing, Southern France living jet set lifestyle of 60s 70s movie stars Seems like the lifestyles depicted on his 1972 tv show The Persuaders where he and aging lothario Tony Curtis drive fast cars, throw money around, toss devastating bon mots, smoke cigars, eat caviars, and drink the best most appropriate boozes while investigating, privately isn t too far off the mark His stories on Curtis clinging to his 1950s [...]


    6. 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 gracefully.When 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 desi [...]


    7. Roger Moore The Saint, James Bond, etc pens a fairly light and breezy memoir since his last one, My Word Is My Bond, touching on entertaining stories about the actors, directors, and producers he s worked with and other celebrities he s known There s plenty of stuff about producers Cubby Broccoli and Harry Saltzman who was Canadian , the Bond producers, as well as David Niven, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Trevor Howard, Michael Caine, Michael Winner, Bryan Forbes, Rex Harrison, Rachel Roberts, Pe [...]


    8. One Lucky Bastard alternate title, Last Man Standing because the publisher was nervous about the word Bastard This kind of celebrity memoirs I like Nothing pretentious No self aggrandizing Just anecdotes of his time as a working actor We can t be sure if they are all true come on, how many biographies are 100% accurate anyway but it s perfect if you re looking for some light reading Moore name drops just about everyone except, for some reason, Sean Connery whom he referred to as a famous Scottis [...]




    9. As much as I like Roger Moore, I can t think of a good reason for this book to exist During his eighth decade of life, with very few acting roles coming his way, Moore turned to writing books His first two efforts an autobiography and a book on the James Bond series were sensible choices that gave fans exactly the sort of thing they wanted and expected from an ex 007 ONE LUCKY BASTARD, however, feels like a book no one asked for A book written mainly to keep an 86 year old man occupied while ear [...]


    10. It isn t until Sir Roger Moore talks about the stars of the golden age of Hollywood like Tony Curtis, Richard Burton, and Elizabeth Taylor that I realized so many of the people who can relate to those stars are now dead Although I had no clue about the people in theatre he was talking about, the tales of the actor and his colleagues were entertaining enough that I wish I could have experienced much of his exploits If you want a glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous, this book provides mu [...]


    11. Endlich mal wieder ein englischsprachiges Buch, dass ich schnell durchgelesen habe Als Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price im Einkaufskorb gelandet, hat es das gehalten, was es versprochen hat Roger Moore erz hlt am sant wie er war ber Anekdoten aus seiner Arbeitswelt und von den Granden der Film und Theaterwelt Kurzweilig und man hat das Gef hl, dass sie alle sehr viel Spa hatten und sehr viel Alkohol.


    12. AmusingNice little book filled with chatter of life as a movie star That said not really a biography, of a relaying incidents of equally famous movie stars where Roger Moore was often not present and had only been told Interesting to note the content which shows sexual harassment was rife well before current days and how it was brushed aside and almost treated with amusement That content raised my eyebrows.


    13. I really enjoyed this book It s full of fun and interesting anecdotes about his life and many of his famous friends, Nice chatty style you could be sitting in a room with him enjoying a coffee and listening to the his stories What a fascinating life he has had.


    14. Interesting anecdotes and lots of gossip about stars of yesterday It took a while to get into because it jumped around a bit but I enjoyed the read A bit coarse in places but I guess that was the reality On the whole it was worth a read from the late, great Roger Moore


    15. GoodAn enjoyable read He had an interesting life and this book tells some of the great stories about actors and actresses, producers and others he came across over the years I would recommend it to anyone.


    16. Fascinating life What an outstanding person, loved his films, TV, would have loved to have bought this guy a drink and talked about his fascinating life Enjoy the read




    17. Summary of the film worldWho knows if it s true but very interesting to see how the other half live and what they get up to, a good read.



    18. Great read for fans What a life he had and so many friends Great read for fans of the iconic James Bond Saint Star.


    19. An interesting readA nice book by Sir Robert which gives an overviews of behind the scenes and the life of a mega star.




    20. As the subtitle Tales from Tinseltown suggests, this book by former James Bond and Simon Templar actor Sir Roger Moore, is a collection of stories and anecdotes from his life and career, as well as some stories that he was told himself, and others which he admits are probably apocryphal.It s an enjoyable and easy read, but I definitely doubt the veracity of some of his tales even those which he does not admit are probably untrue For example, when talking about Frank Sinatra, he says that when Fr [...]


    21. In a career that spans over seven decades, Roger Moore has been at the very heart of Hollywood Of course, he s an actor and has starred in films that have made him famous the world over but he s also a tremendous prankster, joker and raconteur Despite the fact that he is well known as one of the nicest guys in the business, on and off the screen he has always been up for some fun.In this fabulous collection of true stories from his stellar career, Moore lifts the lid on the movie business, from [...]


    22. Amazingly, I was nearly finished writing a memory piece review of One Lucky Bastard Tales from Tinseltown I d won an advance reading copy from the Giveaway program and believe the title is changed to Last Man Standing by Sir Roger Moore, when the copy vanished from my computer screen So here goes again I was a star struck country girl whose fancy was caught by stories on screen and in books from childhood days Sir Roger Moore is still Simon Templar in my imagination, though over the years I ve s [...]


    23. This is such a wonderful mix of stories, anecdotes and That reminds me of this time when recollections told with humour, love, and openness I loved reading his autobiography and this continues in the same honest style, it is both terribly sad, hearing of his friends and loved ones passing away, yet full of passion for the such incredible times he and they had together There is than a fair share of rude words and smut fantastic so be prepared for some hilarious telling it as it is As someone in [...]
