A ship containing an Automatic Targeting Attack Communicator (ATAC), which can control ballistic missile attacks, is sunk. Bond is sent to retrieve the ATAC before the Russians do. MI6 had sent archaeologist Timothy Havelock to discretely locate the ship, but he and his wife were murdered in front of their daughter Melina. Bond tracks down their killer, Hector Gonzales, and must complete his work before Melina takes her revenge.

- For Your Eyes Only was the first Bond film to feature the singer in the opening titles. Sheena Easton's song topped the charts both in the UK and in America.
- Due to a legal battle surrounding Thunderball, the producers couldn't use the name Blofeld. But that didn't stop them from including a bald man stroking a cat, who resembled Blofeld in every way.
- During the filming, future James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan was first introduced to producer Cubby Broccoli. Brosnan's wife Cassandra Harris played Lisl in the film.
- For Your Eyes Only was the first Bond film whose title, and story elements, were derved from Ian Fleming short stories.
- While preparing for the role as M, Bernard Lee had passed away. Since he had played M eleven times, the producers decided not to recast him, as a sign of respect. For Your Eyes Only is the only Bond film so far not to include the M character.
