Crazy Credits

THE END of "MOONRAKER" James Bond will return in "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY"

Alternate Versions

The end credits differ slightly between various prints. To tell some apart, for example, on the Blu-ray edition large Panavision and Dolby Stereo credits fade in on their own after the cast list (and the 5th row of names is too far to the right so Serge Douy becomes Serge Dou), whereas on older DVD, laserdisc, and VHS releases the crawl is more simplified with small Panavision and Dolby credits that move along with the rest (and enough room for Serge Douy's name). It is possible that the latter was recreated quickly to fix the name problem. Both versions have slightly different timing to the appearance of the different components (filming locations, crawl, The End and For Your Eyes Only teaser).
