"Handsome in a slightly eccentric fashion" was how film historian Bill Warren described Irish leading man Kieron Moore. On stage in his native country from 1941, Moore made his first British film in 1944. Though there was nothing archaic about his acting style, Moore seemed best suited to period roles: Vronsky in Anna Karenina (1948), Uriah in David and Bathsheba (1951). Moore's honest intensity enhanced the credibility of many otherwise hard-to-swallow plotlines in such "fantastic" films as Satellite in the Sky (1958) Dr. Blood's Coffin (1961), Day of the Triffids (1962) and Crack in the World (1965); his honest intensity enhanced the credibility factor of the otherwise hard-to-swallow plotlines. After his retirement from acting in 1967, Moore directed and narrated two Third World documentaries, 1975's The Progress of Peoples and 1979's The Parched Land, and also served as associate editor of the Roman Catholic periodical The Universe. He died on July 15, 2007, at the age of 82.
