Maurice Binder decided to include Sheena Easton in the title sequence because he thought she looked striking. After meeting her in person, he told producer Albert R. Broccoli, "I *must* have that face!" However, shooting Easton in the title sequence proved to be a problem, since Binder was using soft-light focus and a very high resolution film stock. On extreme close-ups of Easton's face, the smallest, most imperceptible head wobble would blur her image on the film. Binder finally had to resort to putting Easton's head in a steel clamp, which kept her head perfectly still. The tongs of the clamp were hidden in her hair, with the support hidden behind her back. "It was the most painful thing I've ever worn," Easton later recalled. "But he got my face, in 70 millimeter!" See more »

Mr. Bond, Mr. Bond. I'm so glad I caught you. Your office called. They're sending a helicopter to pick you up. Some sort of emergency.
It usually is. Thank you.

For Your Eyes Only is the best Bond film with Roger Moore as agent 007. It had the best story of all the Moore Bond's, as well as the best action sequences. These sequences include a thrilling ski chase, as well as an edge of your seat mountain climb.
Carole Bouquet portrays one of the most serious minded Bond girls in the serious. We also have the late Cassandra Harris as a Bond girl who at the time was married to future Bond Pierce Brosnan.
Even for everyone who didn't like Moore's portrayal of Bond, you still gotta claim this one as his best even though he was in his mid 50's. Sheena Easton sang probably the best theme song of all the Bond films.
