Alternate Versions

New opening credit titles (the opening background graphics with Sheena Easton were unchanged) were created for the June 29, 2002 airing of For Your Eyes Only on ABC-TV's "Bond Picture Show". The original theatrical opening credits were in an Arial font, while the 2002 TV airing featured the new opening credit titles in Franklin Gothic. Some of the arrangement of the crew titles were altered for the new airing, where as in the theatrical version, was arranged with the crew member's position on the left, and the crew member's name on the right, while the 2002 version featured the crew member's name under their position title. Also, the original opening title which listed "ROGER MOORE as IAN FLEMING'S JAMES BOND-007" with the 007 looking like the standard 007 Gun logo, while the 2002 opening titles replace the 007 logo with just a plain "007".

The Best Bond With Roger Moore!
11 July 2004 | by sjcal75See all my reviews

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.
