Today marks the anniversary of the opening of “For Your Eyes Only” (1981) in cinemas across the US. This was Sir Roger Moore’s fifth outing as Bond and I’d have to say it’s one of my favorites. Hard to believe it’s been thirty-nine years!
I currently have a production used shooting schedule (for the Greek scenes) in my ebay store for anyone chasing a genuine piece of Bond history. It comprises 51 pages held together by a metal clip. I acquired it from the late Australian (Ozploitation) filmmaker John D. Lamond’s personal collection. It’s dated September to October 1980.
For Everyone’s Eyes…
If there’s one thing this shut-down has done, it’s brought me closer to my book collection. I’m currently re-reading “Last Man Standing” by Sir Roger Moore. If you haven’t read it, it’s an absolute treat! Funny, touching, a fascinating insight, not just of Moore. It’s packed with outrageous stories featuring a host of celebrities. So well written (with Gareth Owen), it’s impossible not to read it in Moore’s own voice (if that makes sense?).
I consider myself most fortunate to own a signed copy from a personal appearance in Leeds (2013).
You can get your copy of Last Man Standing at Amazon.
