Behind the scenes of the movie industry with the one and only
Sir Roger Moore.

One Lucky Bastard

“If you’re going to kiss and tell, the least you can do is be this nice about it.”
Washington Post, praise for One Lucky Bastard

“Roger Moore is as debonair on the page as he is on the screen.”
The Boston Globe, praise for Bond on Bond

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 well-known 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 ONE LUCKY BASTARD: Tales from Tinseltown (Lyons Press, October 2014, 978-0-4930-0797-4, $26.95 hardcover) Moore lifts the lid on the movie business, from Hollywood to Pinewood—sharing outrageous tales from his own life and career as well as those told to him by a host of stars and filmmakers, including Sean Connery, Tony Curtis, Michael Caine, David Niven, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck, John Mills, Peter Sellers, Cubby Broccoli, and more. Wonderfully entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny, this extraordinary collection of tales from the world of the movies is vintage Moore at his very best.

Roger Moore is best known for portraying British secret agent James Bond in seven films between 1973 and 1985 and for his role as Simon Templar in the long-running British television series The Saint. Born in London in 1927, he became a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1991 and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003.
