James Bond: For Your Eyes Only


1981       Roger Moore

Production Notes for For Your Eyes Only

Once more James Bond, British Secret Service Agent 007, the most popular secret agent in modern fiction, is back in action in a new film called "For Your Eyes Only." Principal photography began on the Greek Island of Corfu, with Roger Moore in his fifth James Bond movie-as the world's most famous super-hero.

The rest of the picture was made at Pinewood Studios in England and on further locations in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Northern Italy. The film-twelfth in the most successful screen series of all time-is produced by Albert R. Broccoli and directed by John Glen, with the screenplay by Richard Maibaum and Michael G. Wilson, who is also executive producer. Associate producer is Tom Pevsner, director of photography Alan Hume, production designer Peter La-mont, costume designer Elizabeth Waller, editor John Grover, sound mixer Derek Ball and special effects director Derek Meddings.

Starring with Roger Moore are Carole Bouquet, Topol, Lynn-Holly Johnson, Julian Glover, Cassandra Harris and Jill Bennett, plus the usual bevy of glamorous

"Bond Beauties."

Latest in the line-up of Bond heroines is Parisian-born, French convent-educated, green-eyed, dark-haired, 23-year-old Carole Bouquet, who won acclaim in 1977 for her performance in Luis Bunuel's Academy Award nominated film "That Obscure Object of Desire" and has since appeared in other European productions.

Joining an equally long list of Bond villains-(or are they? There's a certain amount of mystery about both men until well into the story)-are distinguished Israeli-born actor Topol, forever remembered for his brilliant portrayal in UA's "Fiddler on the Roof," and well-known and versatile English actor Julian Glover, with an impresive list of stage and screen credits behind him.

Blonde and pretty 22-year-old American actress and U.S. amateur ice-skating champion Lynn-Holly Johnson, and lovely Australian-born Cassandra Harris complete the attractive contenders for 007's romantic favors. Distinguished British actress Jill Bennett appears in an off-beat role as the no-nonsense companion to Lynn-Holly Johnson and the woman determined to steer her protege to an ice-skating Olympic Gold Medal.

The locations for "For Your Eyes Only" are, as usual in a Bond film, fascinating, spectacular and scenically beautiful. They also range from the very hot to the very cold, in the two very different locales of Corfu in the lonian Sea of Greece, to Cortina d'Ampezzo, in the Alps of Northern Italy.

Filming for the picture began in the grounds and swimming pool area of the luxurious Villa Sylva, at Kanoni, in the hills above Corfu Town, on the most popular of Greek islands, and one of the loveliest. More than 3,000 years ago Homer chose Corfu as a literary setting for his "Odyssey." So did Shakespeare for "The Tempest." Napoleon was obsessed with the island's beauty. So was Empress Elizabeth of Australia, who built the beautiful Achilleion Palace there, on a knoll near the village of Gastouri, in the mid-l9th century. The German Kaiser (Wilhelm II) bought it after her death. It was in the Casino of the Palace that sequences for the film were shot, involving Roger Moore, Carole Bouquet, Topol, Julian Glover and Cassandra Harris.

After the Meteora locations-which featured Roger Moore and others in some heart-stopping mountain-climbing sequences, and also the use of a Polish Mi-2 helicopter which flew all the way from Warsaw for the occasion-the movie team moved back to Pinewood Studios, in England, for three months studio work. plus further London area locations. One of these was in the graveyard of Stoke Poges Church, Buckinghamshire, traditionally believed to be the setting of Thomas Gray's famous poem 'Elegy,' written in 1751. It is here, in the film, that Bond visits the grave of his late wife, Tracy Vicenzo (portrayed in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" by Diana Rigg).

After five weeks in Corfu, the Bond unit and cast moved by water and road to the Meteora mountains and the small town of Kalambaka, in Central Greece. Then to the monastic community: the Meteora. On the western edge of the fertile plain of Thessaly.
