Sir Roger Moore, who played the title role in the James Bond film series from 1973 to 1985, is expected to make a special appearance in Manhattan next month to meet with fans and sign copies of Bond On Bond: Reflections on 50 years of James Bond Movies. The official release of this book is due on November 16th, 2012.
The Bond movies remain the longest continually running film series in movie history, and 2012 marks its fiftieth anniversary. While there have been other actors that have taken on the coveted role of spy, James Bond, one of the most renowned and beloved 007 performers is the charming and charismatic British actor.
To celebrate these films, Roger Moore has penned this book featuring all the Bond movies, along with a wonderfully witty account of his own involvement. From the girls to the villains, the cars to the cocktails (shaken not stirred), the gadgets, locations, etc., his work is vividly illustrated with hundreds of iconic images from all the films, plus many previously unseen photos from the Bond archive. This is the ultimate James Bond primer, written by the ultimate insider, with all of the affection and good humor he brought to the role. It’s the perfect gift for all fans of these much loved cinematic gems.
If you’re unable to attend the autograph party at Barnes & Noble on November 9th in New York, but still want a copy, several first editions (personally signed by Sir Roger Moore) will be available from the online store at veryfinebooks.com.
