* AdaptationalModesty: Occurs during the iconic scene where Honey Ryder comes up out of the sea and walks up the beach. As generations of short-changed Bond fans have pointed out, in [[Literature/DrNo the novel]], Honey Ryder is only wearing a diving mask and her knife belt when she emerges from the ocean. In the film, Ursula Andress wore a white bikini that has become associated with her character and the idea of the Bond girl as a symbol of glamor, sophistication, sex appeal, and danger.

Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticAdaptation: A major reason why this was the first Bond story to be adapted is that many of the stories have Bond traveling all over the world, which would either require expensive location shooting or trying to stage the location in UK, which easily ends up looking cheap and unconvincing. The production company went with the former option, and ''Dr. No'' was deemed a relatively inexpensive story because Jamaica is the only location involved outside of UK.

** And so an agonising death by spider bite in response is...understandable.
** Honey is dragged off to be used by the guards. When Bond finds her though she's chained up in a DrowningPit with her tight-fitting dress intact, so maybe Dr No just said this to taunt Bond or [[IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten test his reaction]].



*** Except a man with a gun ''is'' used in ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'', and is no more effective against Bond.

* YouHaveFailedMe: Subverted; Dr. No deals with Professor Dent's failure to kill Bond simply by having him resort to an AnimalAssassin and hope for the best. When ''that'' fails, he's lucky to be captured and killed by Bond during an attempt to deal with him personally.

* {{Tuckerization}}: This film marks the first appearance of the character Major Boothroyd (later played by Desmond Llewellyn and known simply as "Q"), based on fan and gun expert Geoffrey Boothroyd who informed Fleming the .25 Beretta 418 he had James Bond using was a wimpy ladies' pistol. (This also formed the basis for Bond's forced gun upgrade in the book and this movie.) The real-life Geoffrey Boothroyd appears in a vintage featurette on the ''Dr. No'' DVD and Blu-ray, in which he demonstrates the relative stopping powers of the two Bond guns, plus his own favorite, a Ruger .44 Magnum.
