Trivia: British model Caroline Cossey, who appeared as one of the women in the film, was revealed after the film to be a transsexual. She was born a man.
Trivia: Sheena Easton, who sings the theme song, appears in the opening music sequence. This is the first time the title singer appeared in the opening of a Bond film.
Trivia: At the beginning of the film, Bond visits the grave of his wife. This is a two-part reference to the 1969 Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". First, Mrs. Bond (played by Diana Rigg) was killed in that movie, and second, the inscription on the gravestone is "We Have All the Time in the World" - the theme song for "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", sung by Louis Armstrong.
Trivia: Stuntman Paolo Rigon was killed during filming of the bobsled chase.
Trivia: The location for the film's climax posed several problems for the crew. A Monastery, atop a column of rock near Kalambaka, in the Pindus mountain range, had been chosen for the villain's hideaway. Permission had originally been granted, but just before filming was due to commence, the monks staged a protest and refused filming. The locals were furious with this and the disagreement was eventually settled by the Greek Supreme Court - in the film-makers' favour. The mountain scenery did not suit Moore, and it quickly became apparent that he was afraid of heights. One of the film's major stunts - Bond's 100 foot from the mountain - was performed by Rick Sylvester, who had originally done the ski-jump off the mountain-top in the pre-credit sequence of "The Spy Who Loved Me". At only 5' 6", he was much shorter than Moore, for whom he was doubling .
Trivia: The voice of Blofeld in the pre-credits sequence was Robert Rietty, while the man in the chair was John Hollis. Neither were credited. Robert Rietty was also previously uncredited for dubbing the voice of Largo in 'Thunderball'.
Trivia: Emile Locque (Michael Gothard) doesn't have a single line of dialogue in the film.
Trivia: Although Sir Roger Moore's own preference ran to a lighter-hearted interpretation of James Bond, he accepted that For Your Eyes Only needed to be a serious Bond movie. Moore, therefore, disliked the fact that the parrot revealed that the ATAC had been taken to St. Cyril's Monastery, as well as the final scene in which Max is mistaken for Bond during a telephone conversation with Margaret Thatcher, as he felt it did not fit the movie's more serious tone.
