Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Puckish comedic performer who entered movies following a successful career writing and performing in British satirical revues. Born club-footed and stunted of growth as a child, Moore, like many laughmakers, embraced comedy as a form of escapism. He studied music while at Oxford, where he met Peter Cook, Jonathan Miller, and Alan Bennett; in the early 1960s they formed "Beyond the Fringe," a comedy troupe best described as a precursor to Monty Python's Flying Circus. Moore and Cook later teamed for several two-man shows, eventually reaching the screen in The Wrong Box (1966), Bedazzled (1967),The Bed-Sitting Room (1969), and the dreadful The Hound of the Baskervilles (1977). He made his solo starring debut in the little-seen 30 Is a Dangerous Age, Cynthia (1968), costarring Suzy Kendall, to whom he was briefly married. It took him ten years to win another major movie role, but after getting most of the laughs in Foul Play (1978), he was chosen to replace George Segal as leading man in Blake Edwards' mid-life-crisis comedy 10 (1979). Moore's performance as a middleaged, would-be Romeo struck a chord with moviegoers, and he became the 1980s' unlikeliest movie star.

Arthur (1981) cast Moore as a spoiled, perpetually tipsy millionaire who somehow falls in love with working-class Liza Minnelli. Moore earned a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his funny, freewheeling portrayal, but none of his subsequent films-including Six Weeks (1982), Lovesick, Romantic Comedy (both 1983), Unfaithfully Yours, Best Defense, Micki + Maude (all 1984), Like Father, Like Son (1987), Arthur 2: On the Rocks (1988), and Crazy People (1990)-have attained the same degree of success, critically or commercially. In 1993 he starred in a short-lived TV sitcom, "Dudley." In addition to his acting talents, Moore is an accomplished pianist who also composed the scores for such films as Bedazzled (1967), Inadmissible Evidence (1968), Staircase (1969), and Six Weeks.
