MI6 Confidential magazine has announced the release of a new special issue that pays tribute to one of our favorite actors: Remembering Roger Moore. From the press release: "In 2017, after ten years of service, MI6 Confidential introduced a new special format: a limited-run 100-page perfect bound issue of the magazine taking a deep dive into one particular facet of the franchise. The second release is co-authored by Matthew Field and Ajay Chowdhury whose "Some Kind of Hero" is the 21st century's modern Bond bible. Rather than recounting the production history of Sir Roger's epic seven film run as 007 the authors instead turned the narrative over to Moore's on-screen co-stars. The actor, philanthropist and true gentleman touched the lives of many — and many of his Bond co-stars who have said little or nothing about their work on the EON films since took this opportunity to regale Field and Chowdhury with some remarkable stories about Sir Roger Moore. No two stories are alike but each adds to a picture of a warmhearted man, a consummate professional, who never took himself too seriously." This special issue is 100 pages, perfect bound, and includes remembrances from over 60 of Moore's colleagues and over 100 rare photographs and images. More info at MI6 Confidential. It appears that the issue is, at least in part, sourced from the book mentioned above, Some Kind of Hero, and focusses on Moore's Bond years. By the way, I haven't said enough about Some Kind of Hero, but I found it to be wonderfully accessible and informative. When learning about creative projects like film or music, there's nothing better than hearing directly from the people who experienced it first hand. I think Spy Vibers will be very happy to check out both Remembering Roger Moore and Some Kind of Hero. Enjoy!
