Movie star Roger Moore
has revealed one of James Bond'
s most famous stunts left him almost crippled when the steering on a speedboat cut out on him.
In his upcoming memoir, My Word Is My Bond
, the former 007 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?"
