For Your Eyes Only: Behind the Scenes of the James Bond Films (2002)

For Your Eyes Only: Behind the Scenes of the James Bond Films is a rare tour of the world's most successful film series of all time, beginning with Ian Fleming's clandestine life and career. Explore the world of James Bond through unprecedented access to the closed 007 sets and exclusive interviews with Bond's leading players, from Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, George Lazenby, and Sean Connery, to key directors, writers, production designers, stunt and special effects wizards, to old series favorites like “Q” and Miss Moneypenny. And, oh yes, the bevy of “Bond Girl” beauties. All the key participants also take you thorough a film-by-film breakdown with their anecdotes and behind-the-scenes secrets of each James Bond film. Retracing the cultural, cinematic, and political impact of the Bond series, the book also includes such luminaries as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, CIA operative E. Howard Hunt, Harrison Ford, and Kevin Costner. From his literary beginnings, to international film sensation, to mid-'80s faltering, to the spectacular resurgence with the Brosnan Bond, to the 40th anniversary film Die Another Day, James Bond is now more popular than ever before. Tomorrow Never Dies — and neither does Bond … James Bond.
