So I would suspect that what would make him the happiest is that we remember his music. He was a brilliant pianist, he was an amazing composer and I think that was his real passion and that was the real tragedy about his disease. Supranuclear palsy is degenerative. There is no cure, he knew that, yet he was still so brave, so courageous, so focussed on finding a cure, still sharing his passion for music. He was a very brave man to the end." ABC 1999 23.

He was a loveable person, he was so dear, he was so sweet. The most incredible expressions came out of his eyes and you did see them in his films. That's nice for us - for anyone who loved him I think it's great we have his films so we can watch him and get a sense of him." 29. Clip - "Arthur" DUDLEY MOORE DIES AT SIXTY-SIX British born actor Dudley Moore, who became an unlikely Hollywood heart-throb portraying a cuddly pipsqueak whose charm melted hearts in '10' and 'Arthur,' died Wednesday (27MAR02) at his home in New Jersey, a spokeswoman said. He was 66. His publicist said that he died at 11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT) at his home in New Jersey in the US. Publicist Michelle Bega said Moore died of pneumonia as a complication of progressive supranuclear palsy. The star had been suffering from the degenerative brain condition for a number of years. Speaking late on Wednesday after hearing the news of his death, Moore's close friend and former co-star BO DEREK paid tribute to the actor, calling him a 'very brave man', whom she believes he would most like to be remembered for his talent and passion for music. Derek went on to say that unlike some actors, Moore always seemed true to his real self on screen, offering a 'great sense of him' through his various movie roles. There was more than a touch of autobiography in the film Moore and Derek made together, '10', possibly Moore's best known movie. The 1979 film saw Moore play a musician determined to marry a perfect woman. But the happy ending eluded him in real life with four marriages ending in divorce. He confessed to being driven by feelings of inferiority about his working-class origins in Dagenham, East London, and because of his short height of five feet, 2 1/2 inches (156 centimeters). Music was Moore's entree into public performance, first as a chorister and organist in his parish church in Dagenham and then in 1960 as a young Oxford graduate recruited for the hit four-man comedy review "Beyond the Fringe." Through this work, Moore formed a firm friendship with comic Peter Cook and later teamed on television as Dud and Pete on "Not Only ... but Also," a sketch comedy series. After a number of other successes on stage and screen, Cook returned to England but Moore settled in Southern California, where he met the director Blake Edwards in a therapy group. It was Edwards who directed '10' the film that established Moore as a Hollywood star. Two years later, he had another hit role: 'Arthur,' playing a rich drunk who falls for Liza Minnelli. That marked the peak of Moore's film career, though he made several more films including a sequel to 'Arthur' in 1988. Throughout his life, music was to feature as an important aspect of Moore's abilities, both as a jazz pianist and as a parodist.
