Roger Moore has passed,one of the most popular Bond's with his panache and quacks marking him out.Some have said he had no depth to his acting but i believe any actor with the right maerial can show their real talent and his movie The Man Who Haunted Himself was ,for me, excellent.

His acting style could best be described as wooden but he was good looking, so I have been told

I was awarded a Leslie Charteris Saint Omnibus book as a school prize 'for diligence' by my primary school headmaster in 1966.

How did the prize-giving comittee know that I was a Simon Templar fan?

RIP Roger.

I know not everyone would agree but, I liked Roger Moore's tongue-in-cheek take on James Bond.

Ivanhoe must have been one of his first steps to fame.

I could never quite make up my mind whether I preferred Roger Moore or Sean Connery as James Bond. I like them both and still think the earlier films were the best of the series.

But Sir Roger spent a lot of his time in his later years as a Unicef ambassador. A job that I believe he liked and felt quite passionate about.

He may not have been the greatest actor that ever lived, but I for one, enjoyed his contributions to the arts.

Anyone that has provided pleasure for a great many people can truly say, I did my best to make people happy. Not a bad legacy to leave behind.
