Legendary director and FSWL supporter John Glen shares his thoughts with our readers after hearing the sad news about Rémy Julienne's passing on 21 January 2021. John and Rémy worked together on five James Bond films from 1981 until 1989 creating some epic action sequences.

“Rémy Julienne was a master of vehicle stunts. His main tool was a stopwatch. Very well planned and executed. His stunts were rehearsed on an airfield near Paris. Cars flying into boxes seems weird but very safe and spectacular.

I first came across Rémy on The Italian Job in 1968 and used him on all my Bonds in the 1980s. Some of his best work was in Licence to Kill (1989) with the truck sequence.

My condolences go to his family.”

James Bond (Roger Moore) borrowed a taxi in pursuit of May Day through the Paris streets in the 1985 film A View to a Kill. The stunt, where the car loses its top half and then its back half, was orchestrated by coordinator Rémy Julienne. John Glen commented:

“Rémy’s English wasn’t very good and my French was even worse. We managed to communicate through drawings.”
