FSWL are saddened to report the passing of Tom Pevsner, aged 87. Tom was a long-time member of the 'James Bond family'. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

"Tom Pevsner was my nuts and bolts man on all my Bond films. His experience and support were invaluable to my success. He was very honest and straightforward, a wise man who took care of all the details required behind the scenes always taking a back seat and encouraging others."
- John Glen, director for five of the six Bonds Tom Pevsner worked on

Obituary: (by Mark Cerulli for FSWL)
Veteran filmmaker, Tom Pevsner, died on 19, August 2014, aged 87. Born in Dresden, Germany in 1926, Pevsner had a long career in the UK film industry working on over 40 features.

He started out as an assistant director on films like The Cruel Sea and The Ladykillers. Pevsner also worked on Darryl F. Zanuck’s 1962 WWII epic, The Longest Day – which featured Sean Connery in a small role. (Pevsner worked as Production Supervisor on another Connery title, 1975’s The Wind and the Lion.)

Like the late Iris Rose, Pevsner began his Bond career on For Your Eyes Only, serving as Associate Producer. He worked on the next five Bonds, ending with 1995’s GoldenEye on which he was Executive Producer. His death was another tragic loss for Eon and the Bond fan community.
