Goodbye Roger Moore – the finest 007 of them all

Sir Roger Moore has died earlier this week on 23 May 2017. We saw him with his touring show in  York a couple of years ago – the first half he chatted with a colleague on stage about his career and after the interval opened up for questions from the audience – and it was a very full house that evening including the Archbishop of York  – another fan it seems. He was witty, funny and had many stories from his varied film and TV life. He always  looked like a Film Star. NVS0351 When you stop to think about it, he started in films in 1945 as an extra on Caesar and Cleopatra and has completed films still to be released so his career spanned so many years – in fact astonishingly Eight Decades Roger Moore as Ivanhoe Above: Roger Moore as Ivanhoe His Television fame started with Ivanhoe which was a very good attempt to capitalise on the success of the Robin Hood series with Richard Greene and after that he did The Alaskans in the USA and Maverick in which he played Beau Maverick. After that came The Saint and then The Persuaders with Tony Curtis. ( with that great them song by Tony Christie)

    Roger Moore, a Saint in more ways than one. We will all miss you.

      Absolutely right, Alan. He had style, charisma and charm – and a great storyteller. His career spanned the film era and the early days of Television as you know. He fitted the role of Ivanhoe perfectly – and it was a good series. He was also perfect on a TV chat show.
