Just have a look how a sad sequence can be played without tearing up!

Not Blofeld. Definitely not. In no way is this Blofeld.

The key question is: was the priest in on it?

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

I've always wondered why they didn't have the normal animation of the iris opening up on the first scene, rather its a hard cut from the gunbarrel to the opening shot of the churchyard.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

The helicopter pilot, "one of my less useful people", is George Sweeney, a character actor known amongst other things for playing Tim Cook, a scary criminal psychopath, in no less than 2 episodes of TV's 'The Sweeney'.

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

The miniature helicopter looks still pretty good!

Machine that goes ping... Blofeld’s heavy control heli console.

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

Robert Rietty providing Blofeld's voice... vocal echoes of both Largo and Tanaka.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

For some reason I haven't noticed the Universal Exports logo on the helicopter before.

Beckton Gasworks, over which the helicopter scene takes place, was famously also used in Full Metal Jacket (doubling as Vietnam) and somewhat less famously in my childhood favourite, Biggles (doubling as the WW1 western front).

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

And now it's all about Maurice Binder's besotted fascination with Sheena Easton. Her inclusion in the sequence makes this one of his best later sequences.

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

Good idea to get Sheena Easton on screen too.

Re: AJB live commentary on FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

It’s funny how electronic tones have dated some eighties songs, and others like this, it only adds to them. Builds on the films aquatic theme too...

The floating mine sequence is really good. Very cold war.
