* AbsenteeActor: Q is absent from the film. Desmond Llewelyn was then appearing in the show ''Follyfoot'', but was written out of three episodes to appear in the film.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: For Roger Moore's run, Bond wears some fairly intimidating black gloves during run. Bond's demeanour here is much less humorous, and perhaps even more hard-boiled than Sean Connery's portrayal. The supernatural elements also do not fit well with ''any'' of the scenes in Harlem.other films.
