The eye-popping girls from the new James Bond Film, plus Playboy's own Bond-contest discovery, Gorgeous Robbin Young.
A dossier on some of the divine creatures from the latest James Bond film For Your Eyes Only.
For Your Eyes Only is the 12th in the series of 007 adventures. The exact details of the plot are, as usual, a matter of international security, to be revealed on a need-to-know basis at the proper time and with a side order of popcorn. It seems that this time out, James Bond must locate a top-secret naval device that has been lost in the depths of the sea. somewhere off the Greek-Albanian coast. Agent 007 encounters a Greek millionaire whose idea of a good time is tying Bond to a young girl (Carole Bouquet), then tossing the two of them to the sharks. The chase leads Bond to Italy's ski resort Cortina d’Ampezzo, where he meets a figure skater played by figure skater Lynn Holly Johnson. Need we say more? Oh, yes. For those of you who rely on the Bond movies to tease you with state-of-the-art automobiles, there is a Lotus Esprit Turbo—with extras, no doubt. For those of you who rely on the Bond movies to tease you with state-of-the-art women, just keep reading.
Naturally, For Your Eyes Only features the usual bevy of beauties we've come to expect from Bond. This year's collection includes (top photo, from left, front row) Viva, Vanya, Kim Mills and Lalla Dean. Flanking Roger Moore are Lizzie Warville (left) and Alison Worth. Carole Bouquet is shown taking a dip with 007 at left.
By now, you are familiar with the recipe for a James Bond film. First a beautiful woman, then a fight scene. Next another world-class woman, then a car chase. Then another stunning lady, followed by an underwater scene or maybe some ski footage. Judging from the stills above, both shot in Cortina, Italy, this 007 movie is as action-packed as its predecessors. As though we would get bored looking at the likes of Lizzie Worville (below left) and Max Vesterholt (below right). Warville was born in England— appropriately. Her favorite activities—water-skiing, wind-surfing, tennis and horseback riding—seem to qualify her for the pace of an action epic. Vesterholt is a native New Yorker who claims that her ambition is to rule the world, or at least half of it.
The Bond beauties are truly women of the world. Tula Cossey (left) was born in Rome but now resides in London, where she works as a model, takes care of her tropical fish and occasionally escapes for a camping holiday. Kim Mills (right) was born in England, educated in a convent and now keeps a flat in London. She spends her leisure time reading science fiction, which may explain how she wound up in a Bond extravaganza. The thing with the funny arms and legs (above) is not the creature from the Michelin tire ads. It's not even a clone of R2-D2. It is a villain, dressed in the latest in deep-sea-diving formalwear.
Ice-skating star Lynn-Holly Johnson makes a special appearance as Bibi in the new Bond film. That's Lynn in bed below. Needless to say, she also skates and skis in the film. On the beach at Corfu, Claus, one of the villains (Charles Dance), tries to wipe Bond out with a dune buggy (bottom).
That's what we call a hit-and-run holiday.
PLAYBOY was happy to cooperate with United Artists in sponsoring a contest for aspiring Bond beauties. Robbin Young, the lucky winner, flew from her home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Cortina, where she met producer Albert R. Broccoli (above left) and Roger Moore (above right), who gave her acting tips. Robbin has a small part in Eyes Only as a flower-shop salesgirl. She wrote to us about it:
"I filmed for four days. I would usually shoot from noon until three am. The rest of the time I watched. I was nervous, but once the camera started, I loved it. I knew I was a ham. Someone asked me for my autograph. I almost died. I was so happy. Thank you for giving me a beautiful experience and a lasting memory" The pleasure was all ours, Robbin. We expect to see a good deal more of you.
