  Dudley Moore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dudley Stuart John Moore, CBE (19 April 1935 27 March 2002), was a British musician, actor and comedian who was enormously popular in his home country for many years and who became famous in the United States when he made the film 10 with Bo Derek.
Cook and Moore are most remembered for their sketches as two working-class men, Pete and Dud, in macs and cloth caps, commenting on politics and the arts, but they fashioned a series of character one-offs, usually with Moore in the role of interviewer to one of Cook's upper-class eccentrics.
Moore was married to actresses Suzy Kendall and Tuesday Weld (by whom he had a son, Patrick, in 1976).
