* ExecutiveMeddling: When the film aired on ABC the network had the scene where Lana Wood, as Plenty O'Toole, walked around wearing nothing but a flimsy pair of see through pink panties artificially altered to make it appear as though she were wearing a black bra with black panties - despite the fact that her backless purple satin dress clearly showed that she had no bra.

Added DiffLines:

* EndOfAnAge:
** Due to endless litigation between the producers and Kevin [=McClory=], this would be the last Eon Bond film where Blofeld and SPECTRE would appear as BigBad[=/=]GreaterScopeVillain and NebulousEvilOrganisation respectively until the 2015 movie ''Film/{{Spectre}}''.
** It was also this for classic Bond, since Sean Connery only agreed to one additional movie with UA boss David Picker, and, minus [=McClory=]'s ''Never Say Never Again'', refused to deal with any part of the franchise ever again [[note]]or at least until the 2005 ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' video game, which bridged the gap between Creator/PierceBrosnan and Creator/DanielCraig. [[/note]] EON had to recast the role for the third time in a row, going with Roger Moore, who was considered originally.

* InNameOnly: Bond films have never been known for strict fidelity to the source material, but this movie takes it to a new level. Whatever changes the last six movies made to the corresponding books, they at least kept the names and general gimmicks of the BigBads. This one swaps out the novel's Spang brothers with Blofeld, who hadn't even been created when the former was published, and pretty much rewrites the entire plot to revolve around a KillSat.

Added DiffLines:

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Blofeld's MadScientist, Professor Dr. Metz, rather stupidly believes that SPECTRE is dedicated to nuclear disarmament despite [[Film/{{Thunderball}} previous]] [[Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService films]] showing them as a terrorism-for-profit group.

* MasqueradingAsTheUnseen: Willard Whyte is infamously reclusive, which makes it easy for Blofeld to abduct him and take control of his business empire in his latest plot.

* YouLookFamiliar: Charles Gray (Blofeld) earlier played a British agent in ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice''. Ironically, said agent is murdered by SPECTRE, so he is basically playing the man ultimately responsible for his own death.
