FSWL are saddened to report the passing of Bond alumni June Randall who worked as Continuity and Script Supervisor on no less than five James Bond films from 1977 to 1995. Our thoughts and prayers go to her family.

"Very sad. June was a legend in her own right. Great sense of humour and a real trouper. She would pound her typewriter in the tropics with her feet immersed in a bowl of water to keep cool and sometimes ice packs under her hat. She will be greatly missed."
John Glen (Director of four films that June did continuity on)

June Randall obituary:
June Randall (born 1927) died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 87 in a nursing home in England on 19th January 2015. Randall had a long and impressive resume and Bond fans will always remember her for the contribution to the 007 film series – The Spy Who Loved Me (Continuity), A View to a Kill (Continuity), The Living Daylights (Continuity), Licence to Kill (Continuity) and GoldenEye (1995) (Script supervisor).

In 1976/1977, during the filming of The Spy Who Loved Me, June Randall was interviewed at Pinewood Studios for the televised documentary series The Making of James Bond - 007 made for BBC Open University.

In total, Ms. Randall worked as continuity/script supervisor on over 10 television series and over 90 movies from 1947 to 2001 including Stanley Kubrick's films Clockwork Orange (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975) and The Shining (1980) with Barry Nelson, the first Bond. And since she also worked on Outland (1981) and First Knight (1995), both starring Sean Connery, you could say she worked with five of the James Bond actors over the years.

Other notable films she worked on include the 1980 cult classic Flash Gordon (co-starring Bond alumni Max von Sydow, Topol & Timothy Dalton), Richard Attenborough's Ghandi (1982) and David Fincher's Alien 3 (1992). Her last film was Back to the Secret Garden in 2001.

In 2007, June Randall received a Lifetime Achievement award for her body of work as a Script Supervisor in films. June was nominated for the award unanimously by the Script Supervisor's section of the Guild of British Camera Technicians. The award was presented to June by Roger Moore who flew in especially for the ceremony. Apart from two Bond films, Randall worked with Sir Roger on The Saint (1963-1967) and The Wild Geese (1978).
