* CaliforniaDoubling: Weird inversion: Bond is flown to Drax's base in California (aerial plates shot in the US) and lands on a castle which "Drax ordered to be brought from France" (shot in an actual French castle, of course).

Notable for being the final Bond film to feature Bernard Lee as M; he died before production started on ''For Your Eyes Only''. This was also the last Bond film with sets by production designer Ken Adams.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: Space shuttles cannot be crewed and prepared in a moment's notice as is shown onscreen, as such flights took months to prepare on average.


Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Perhaps the only explanation for why nobody took note of Drax's space station being assembled in space.

* NoahsStoryArc: Drax created his space station to hold the humans who would repopulate the Earth after the deadly spores killed everyone on the surface. When the two leads see that their space shuttle is carrying a cargo of men and women.

* NoahsStoryArc: Drax created his space station to hold the humans who would repopulate the Earth after the deadly spores killed everyone on the surface. When Bond lampshades the story by quoting "And the animals came in two by two." and specifically mentioning Noah's Ark when the two leads see that their space shuttle is carrying a cargo of men and women.

Added DiffLines:

** The last is justified - Goodhead is a CIA operative and a trained astronaut, and definitely not the type who is liable to panic - she is also very deliberately holding the shuttle in a bad entry angle to allow Bond to take out the last globe, the impact of which would literally kill millions. Her dullness is from her consciously holding herself under control in a stressful situation.

** Also after killing Chang: "Play it again, Sam."
** And after killing Drax: "Drax? He had to fly."

* DestroyTheProductPlacement: Happens twice, in two back-to-back scenes. A cable car station is clearly adorned with a huge banner for 7-Up. After Jaws fails to kill Bond, his car not only does ram through the station, but it also clearly damages the 7-Up signs in front, as seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woDyKekeTTg#t=4m2s here]]. After that, Bond and Goodhead are captured by henchmen dressed as paramedics, but Bond escapes a fight in the ambulance; Bond and an enemy henchman fall out of the back on a gurney and roll down a hill. Bond falls off, the henchman continues down and eventually hits and is stuck in a billboard for British Airways, causing some damage.
