For Your Eyes Only (1981) - -- Title Song, Credits With Bond (Roger Moore) having apparently finally offed Blofeld in the opening, then (unusually) appearing himself in the credit and title song sequence, giving way to then pop-sensation Sheena Easton, becoming (still!) the only Bond theme vocalist ever to appear on camera, with the Academy Award-nominated song by Bill Conti and Michael J. Leeson, which reached #4 on the U.S. Billboard chart, from For Your Eyes Only, 1981.

Nurse On Wheels (1963) - To The Last Quivering Nerve Still on her first days’ rounds, new district nurse Joanna (Juliet Mills) meets distracted Dr. Golfrey senior (David Horne) then his son (Ronald Howard), more relevant to her job, in Nurse On Wheels, 1963, from the Carry On! team of Peter Rogers and Gerald Thomas.
