An insightful look into the career of a well known actor. He is definitely more than "James Bond" and his long history of work for UNICEF shows this well. This memoire takes the reader through Sir Roger's early life and his struggles to find work in the theatre, and movies.
Sir Roger freely admits his sense of humor is "childish" and "schoolboyish" and so it is. Having taken the advice of Noel Coward to work, no matter how poor the script, in order to qualify as a working actor, Sir R. marches us through his takes on the films he's been in, with considerable emphasis on risque anecdotes of his own and of his friends and coworkers. Tales of his four wives are disposed of with his off-handed, light and risque manner, but are somehow not enjoyable. If you like a continuous stream of vulgar language, with an immature and gleeful obsession with scatological matters, this is the book for you. The impression one comes away with is that Sir R. has missed the boat and is entertaining himself on an island, blissfully unaware of any realism. We might wish he'd come away with a little more insight and wisdom about the glittering world he inhabited - instead, we see an effect like a cheap, self-serving stand-up comic routine.
