Hi Guys. I have posted a few times, but actually never introduced myself. You can call me Ry. You guys have had some great discussions and I am interested in joining in.

I recently read For My Eyes Only by John Glen where he discusses all of the films he has worked on in his career. Actually some of the more interesting stuff is the work he did before the Bond films. However, his inside stories to the eight Bond films he worked on (5 he directed) is tremendous for any Bond fan. I highly recommend it as an interesting read for people interesting in filmmaking as well.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

If you are interested, I started a short-lived thread back in September on this book, and there is different critique.

Doesn't hurt to get another opinion.:)

Welcome to CBNet. I think I'll buy that Glen book myself.

I bought this book almost as soon as it was released and found it to be very fascinating. I also enjoyed Roger Moore's Intro.
