In over twenty films, fictional British secret agent James Bond has thrilled audiences with pulse-pounding action scenes, amazing gadgets, and a knack for foiling the best-laid plans of megalomaniacs and terrorist syndicates. Bond's amazing ability to get out of any jam, his suave sophistication, his taste for vodka martinis, and his Casanova prowess have been his hallmarks. While film and television producers, and even intelligence services, from around the world have tried to duplicate the success of this on-screen master spy, James Bond has no equal. This book is a unique autobiography from the most prolific director of James Bond movies, John Glen. During the 1980s, Glen directed five Bond movies: FOR YOUR EYES ONLY (1981), OCTOPUSSY (1983), A VIEW TO KILL (1985), THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS (1987), and LICNSE TO KILL (1989). Glen's Bond association goes back further, as he was closely involved in the making of ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE (1969), THE SPY WHO LOVED ME (1977), and MOONRAKER (1979). His specialty was creating the fantastic action scenes that produced unforgettable moments: the bobsled duel in ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE, the breathtaking ski-parachute jump in THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, and the fight on top of the Golden Gate Bridge in A VIEW TO KILL. FOR MY EYES ONLY takes a look inside the world of Bond films, reveals candid and very funny anecdotes from the making of the movies, and details the secrets that have made these Bond films so entertaining.
