For Your Eyes Only Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P50375~Roger Moore~rogermoore]] is back as Secret Agent 007, this time on the trail of shipwreck that holds an Automatic Targeting Attack Communicator (ATAC) for all of the British Naval submarine fleet. Along the way he teams up with the beautiful Melina, played by [[Performer~P7640~Carole Bouquet~carolebouquet]], a maiden out for revenge against a Cuban hitman who killed her father, the head of a British effort to salvage the ATAC. Turns out the hitman was in league with Greek businessman Aris Kristatos (Julian Glover). who's working for the Soviets to attain the Communicator. Together with a drug smuggling rival of Kristatos (played by Topol), Bond and Melina race against time before the keys to all of Britain's missles get in the wrong hands. [[Performer~P100804~Richard Maibaum~richardmaibaum]]'s screenplay has very little to do with the collection of short stories that made up [[Performer~P23863~Ian Fleming~ianfleming]]'s For Your Eyes Only, save for the plotline involving Melina's seeking vengeance for the death of her father. The direction is by [[Performer~P91742~John Glen~johnglen]], who'd previously done second unit work on other Bond films and went on to direct four more films in the franchise. For Your Eyes Only eschews the gimmickry and campiness of earlier [[Performer~P50375~Roger Moore~rogermoore]] efforts by concentrating instead on intrigue, save for the campy opening that sees Bond dispatch the dastardly Blofeld in a broad comedic pre-credits scene. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
