For my eyes only john glen
Publication of For My Eyes Only: My Life with James Bond, John Glen's autobiography with Marcus Hearn (author of Kiss, Kiss Bang! Bang!, a book about the James Bond phenomenon).

"John would keep all the very worst takes, including me scratching my crotch or blinking whenever I fired a gun. All in good fun, and incredibly bad taste, and most definitely for our eyes only." - Roger Moore

Official synopsis:
A unique autobiography from the most prolific director of James Bond movies.

During the 1980s John Glen directed all five Bond movies, including For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983) (1983), A View to a Kill (1985), The Living Daylights (1987) and Licence 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) (1979).

For My Eyes Only includes candid and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes stories of the making of eight Bond movies; previously unpublished film stills and storyboard illustrations; and details of some classic stunts. It takes a look inside the world of action films, revealing the secrets behind some of the most popular movies ever made.
