In the opening credits, the last girl who is doing flips supposedly on the end of the gun barrel pulls down the actual bar during rotation to the point where it shows under the gun barrel (blue; during director credit). See more »
"THE END of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME JAMES BOND will return in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" - though in fact the next film in the series was switched to Moonraker in light of the success of sci-fi movie Star Wars. Thus Moonraker went unannounced and For Your Eyes Only was promised twice. For the other incidence in the series of the next film being announced in error, see Octopussy. See more »
This is one of Roger Moore's best turns as James Bond. It has one of the best plots, the best villians, and one of the best Bond girls...Barbara Bach as agent XXX. Submarines are being somehow hijacked and it is up to Bond to find out by whom. Meanwhile, Agent XXX must find out who stole a Russian sub. They start out working against each other, but after awhile they pull their resources and work together. This Bond flick features a great ski chase, a battle on a train, car chase and good finale. Also, Richard Kiel, plays the henchman Jaws and does a pretty good job considering he has no lines.
