The autobiography of the director of more James Bond films than anyone else to date is indispensible to any James Bond fan. Glen had a surprisingly rich career which came into its own in the 1960's with superior British spy television, progressed in the 1970's with his time on big British-produced international actioners (he worked with Roger Moore, Peter Hunt and Maurice Binder throughout this period) before his career was crowned in the 1980's with his unsurpassed period with 007. Glen goes into great detail about all his time with Eon Productions covering his second unit directing and editorial stints for OHMSS, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker and then his time as helmer on For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View To A Kill, The Living Daylights and Licence To Kill. Despite the recent golden DVD releases, the volume unearths a wealth of new information about the above films. Very much a producer's director, Glen is nevertheless underrated for he was a resourceful, skillful yet pragmatic professional. The director had a strong vision of how to shoot action sequences. He also succeeded in his aim of getting 007 back to the essence of Fleming's blood and thunder creation. He was partly responsible for building the "New Eon" team who continue to make Bonds to this day. Especially interesting are his surprisingly frank tales of who tested to play Bond, pre-production and logistical battles, how each film was developed and his impressions of Cubby Broccoli, Michael G Wilson, John Barry, Maurice Binder, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton amongst others. Starting with a funny "forewarning" by Roger Moore, this is also the wider story of a journey through the British film industry from post-war to present day. The rare photographs are particularly well-chosen and capture an era that is now past and the jacket is classy. You will look at the Bond films John Glen directed and appreciate them in a whole new light after reading this book. For all our eyes only. Forever.
