For Your Eyes Only (25-Jun-1981)

Director: John Glen

Writers: Richard Maibaum; Michael G. Wilson

From novel: For Your Eyes Only by Ian Fleming

Music by: Bill Conti

Producer: Albert R. Broccoli

Keywords: Action/Adventure, James Bond, Sharks

A British spy vessel disguised as a Greek fishing trawler strikes a WWII mine in the Ionian Sea, setting off a panic as its ATAC encryption device is lost. Both the KGB and MI6 seek recovery, as ATAC could be used to control Polaris missiles. Probably Roger Moore's best Bond performance, bringing the franchise back from the brink after the excesses of Moonraker (1979). Received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song.
