*** Especially telling because when the scene is later mimicked with Bond throwing Killifer in the same pool, while Sharkey looks away in horror, Bond isn't disturbed at all and keeps watching.

* TitleDrop: Double when considering the ViewersAreMorons entry.

* ViewersAreMorons: A rumor exists that the original title for the film, ''License Revoked'', was changed because test audiences didn't know what the word "revoked" meant, or that they would be confused why Bond not being able to drive (i.e. a ''driving'' licence) was such a bad thing. The last minute title change was one of the things that ultimately hurt the film. ** The truth is more nuanced - MGM feared that because of the driving association, American audiences would not respond well to the title not because of confusion but because the idea was associated with being forced to do things slowly and laboriously - not an association that one wanted for a successful summer blockbuster! In any event, the viewer confusion caused by the last-minute title change probably did the film far more harm.

*** The real issue with M's actions are that he never tells Bond that there are ''several'' operations going on in Isthmus City, and that he has "a man" in town working on Sanchez. When Bond asks incredulously that they're doing ''nothing'', he should have replied they did have something going on, and to cool his jets while they dealt with a delicate situation.

* TautologicalTemplar: M and MI6, who acts as the {{Hero Antagonist}}s towards Bond in contrast to their past and later appearances, operates by showing NoSympathy to Felix Leiter's tragedy (equivalent to acting as {{Ungrateful Bastard}}s since Leiter has put his life on the line for Bond and them in the past), willing to allow the BigBad to undergo KarmaHoudini, not caring if their American allies are useless despite Bond flat out telling them that they are not going to do anything to stop Sanchez and hiring corrupt agents to take Bond in for being a RogueAgent or possibly execute him [[UngratefulBastard after all the past service Bond done for them]] through lethal injection [[FridgeHorror if the needle crooked agent Fallon was preparing was not a sedative]].
