Actor Roger Moore, who died earlier today at age 89, was best known for his role as secret agent James Bond in seven feature films - Live and Let Die (1973), The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983) and A View to a Kill (1985). He also starred in five television series - Ivanhoe (1958-59 British series), ABC's The Alaskans (1959-60), ABC's Maverick for one season (1960-61), The Saint (1962-69 British series) and The Persuaders! (1971-72 British series).

Moore was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 1999 and a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE) in 2003. And he was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007.

Below I've selected some videos to celebrate Roger Moore's life and career.

Groovy Giveaway: Dolly on Dolly: Interviews and Encounters with Dolly Parton



This week's Groovy Giveaway is two copies of Randy L. Schmidt's book, Dolly on Dolly: Interviews and Encounters with Dolly Parton.

“Nobody knows Dolly like Dolly,” declares Dolly Parton.

Dolly’s is a rags-to-riches tale like no other. A dirt-poor Smoky Mountain childhood paved the way for the buxom blonde butterfly’s metamorphosis from singer-songwriter to international music superstar. The undisputed “Queen of Country Music,” Dolly has sold more than 100 million records worldwide and has conquered just about every facet of the entertainment industry: music, film, television, publishing, theater, and even theme parks. It has been more than fifty years since Dolly Parton arrived in Nashville with just her guitar and a dream. Her story has been told many times and in many ways, but never like this.

Dolly on Dolly is a collection of interviews spanning five decades of her career and featuring material gathered from celebrated publications including Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, Playboy, and Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. Also included are interviews which have not been previously available in print. Dolly’s feisty and irresistible brand of humor, combined with her playful, pull-up-a-chair-and-stay-awhile delivery, makes for a fascinating and inviting experience in down-home philosophy and storytelling. Much like her patchwork “Coat of Many Colors,” this book harkens back to the legendary entertainer’s roots and traces her evolution, stitching it all together one piece at a time.

To enter to win this Groovy Giveaway, email your name and address to deepdish73@gmail.com. Winners must have a US mailing address, and entries close at midnight on Thursday, May 25 (CST).
