Overview

Dudley Moore: An Intimate Portrait by Rena Fruchter


The public persona of Dudley Moore was many-sided: the short, anxious member of the comic duo Pete and Dud; the hard-drinking millionaire in the phenomenally successful Arthur; the gifted concert pianist and composer; the working-class kid who won a scholarship to Oxford. His life spanned an era of brilliant British comedy and an extraordinary decade of success—and excess—in Hollywood. After a debilitating illness forced him off the stage into real life, he struggled to survive; paradoxically, he also found inner peace. Looking back on the final 15 years of his life, Rena Fruchter gives us a loving and unflinching portrait of her friend Dudley Moore.

I've loved dudley moore and his work all my life. I've seen all of his movies and have most of his albums. He was a wonderful artist and a very generous and sweet person. It was so sad that he had to go through such a horrible illness that prevented him from playing his piano which was the one thing he loved to do the most. If you love dudley moore, read this book, you'll get to know him better and love him even more!!
