It was very nice to meet film producer Euan Lloyd at the 40th Anniversary event of Thunderball at Cine Lumiere in London on 20th November 2005.

Euan Lloyd began his career directing short travelogue documentaries, starting with April in Portugal (1954). From there he became associate producer and producer on numerous international films such as The Secret Ways (1961) starring Swedish related actor Richard Widmark, The Poppy Is Also a Flower (1966) directed by Terence Young after a story by Ian Fleming, Murderer's Row (1966) starring Swedish actress Ann-Margret, westerns such as Shalako (1968) starring Sean Connery, and Catlow (1971).

In the 1970s, Lloyd went independent, but his first effort, Paper Tiger (1975), was not a success. He put everything he had behind the 10 USD million action film The Wild Geese (1978). He followed with The Sea Wolves (1980) co-starring Roger Moore and David Niven, and Who Dares Wins (1982) co-starring Richard Widmark.

His last film was Wild Geese II (1985) co-starring Edward Fox and Barbara Carrera.

Lloyd appeared in the short documentary The Last of the Gentleman Producers which accompanied the 2004 release of The Wild Geese on DVD, and also contributed to the audio commentary alongside Roger Moore and editor/second unit director John Glen.
