Roger Moore on ‘The Persuaders!’: ‘I was slightly sloshed’

Posted Filed under

“It was always champagne, always champagne! I was slightly sloshed which made up for [Tony Curtis] being slightly stoned,” Moore responded to claims that the two stars drank real champagne during filming, speaking at a recent event to mark the 40th anniversary of the show.

Originally broadcast on ITV between 1970 and 1971, the show starred Moore and Curtis (Some Like It Hot) as two millionaire playboys.

An 8-disc Blu-ray set is out now, featuring HD restorations of all 24 episodes and brand new special features.
