Anybody read through this:



Started tackling it last week. Heard lots of good things about it but what intrigued me most in one's review is that it's one of the whackiest reads. I've yet to encounter any of that but it's interesting enough for light reading. Have yet to encounter any mention of Jane Seymour so the day is young.

As you say it's a light read. I have it for the sake of completion really but read it ages ago. Personally I found more in his first autobiography, would've been nice if he had done something similar for the next couple of films. Would've been intrigued for his thoughts day to day on Moonraker.

His opinions of the MR shoot would have been a hoot.

The chapter "Goodhead Gave Good Head" would be of particular interest.

laugh

Edging my way through LALD and the wackiness is beginning to show. On the same page he discusses Harry Saltzman blasting a waiter for masquerading a salad as a traditional French palette cleanser then transitions into how he saw FBI footage documenting that Oswald did not kill JFK.

Indeed ... Lois Maxwell expressed reservations about the script to Cubby, so one can only wonder what Moore thought.

Didn't know that. Assuming it was for its outlandishness?

Not only that but having to endure ailments during filming. Wasn't the Concorde shot accompanied by someone saying he had an upset stomach (to put it mildly)?

And the wire stuff for the last scene. Remember Brosnan on some thing that Jonathan Ross did, trying to talk about how they filmed the scene in the sauna with Onatopp and getting tongue tied.

In fact, I'd pay to read Brosnan's take on Bond. Especially post-DAD.

"So, I turned up for work...and was sacked..."

Indeed. I'd be the first in store to purchase it. 

By curious quirk of fate, Roger Moore's twitter account just confirmed there will be a reprint of this book, available from next June, for those without a copy.

She said to Cubby she didn't think it was very good, and Cubby's reply was apparently that they were now competing with the likes of Star Wars.

Interesting. And yet the very next film they decided to return to their roots. 

Back on topic, Roger Moore's twitter account has confirmed that the rerelease of the book will be a hard copy, and that David Hedison has written a foreword. Even though I just bought an original copy of the LALD diary, I'll probably buy it just so I can read Hedison's words.

Yes, Hedison does ramp it up the 'must get' list.
