Snapshot: 1981: Hold on tight, Mr. Bond!

It’s February 1981, and on the set of the new James Bond thriller ‘For Your Eyes Only’ in Corfu, Roger Moore prepares to take the plunge with co-star Carole Bouquet. And judging by the grin on his face, the supposedly shark-infested water lurking below is the last thing on his mind…

Roger Moore must love playing agent 007. Filming for his fifth James Bond epic, For Your Eyes Only, has taken him from the snowy winter-sports town of Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy to the much warmer climes of Greece and even the Bahamas, all the while in the company of one of the most beautiful Bond girls of all time — Carole Bouquet, playing the vengeful Melina Havelock. In this scene, the duo is about to be thrown into the shark-infested water by the film’s villains. But as you’d expect from the slickest undercover agent in town, 007 has a daring plan to help them escape unharmed.
