MOVIE / TV SPIES TELL ALL!

MOVIE / TV SPIES TELL ALL!

In the Aug. 28 edition of USA Today, “Hollywood legends tell all this fall in slew of memoirs” provides an overview of many books being published in the coming months.

Of interest to spy fans:

Pieces of My Heart By Robert Wagner (HarperEntertainment, $25.95, on sale Sept. 23) (Star of It Takes a Thief, Hart to Hart)

In Spite of Myself By Christopher Plummer (Knopf, $29.95, on sale Nov. 11) (Star of numerous espionage films from Triple Cross to The Amateur as well as television’s Counterstrike.)

Don't Mind If I Do By George Hamilton (Touchstone, $26, on sale Oct. 14) (“Star” would be overstating the case, but he was the lead in several espionage TV series including Spies and Paris 7000.)

American Prince By Tony Curtis (Harmony, $25.95, on sale Oct. 14) (Mega-star who worked with Roger Moore in The Persuaders)

A Fortunate Life By Robert Vaughn (Thomas Dunne, $25.95, on sale Oct. 14) (The Man From U.N.C.L.E. himself, later star of The Protectors and Hustle.)

My Word Is My Bond By Roger Moore (Collins, $27.95, on sale Nov. 4) (Mr. Bond, Mr. Simon Templar . . .)

A TIDBIT:

Moore, 81, stepped into the iconic James Bond role when George Lazenby refused a seven-picture contract. He remembers being pushed to the limit by the loud heavy-metal music Grace Jones played in her next-door dressing room when they filmed A View to a Kill in 1985. When she wouldn't turn it down, he threw a chair at the wall.

Robert Vaughn is one of the most underrated actors of his generation. Great in "The Magnificent Seven" and of course "Bullitt."

Those are definitely some books that I would love to add to my library.
