Nice story on IMDb today, excerpted from Roger Moore’s new memoir.
[Moore] admits a spectacular smash scene in Live and Let Die was actually a terrifying stunt gone wrong.
He explains, “I did quite a few run-throughs to practice and, whilst banking on one such run, the engine cut out. I had no steering! I therefore continued in a straight line… directly into a wooden boat house.”
Moore recalls he was thrown from the boat and cracked his teeth and twisted his knee as he hurtled to the ground.
He adds, “There I was, as a fearless 007, hobbling on a cane to my boat and then pretending to be indestructible for the cameras. Who says I can’t act?”
