*** RealityEnsues: The movies were filmed out of order with the books. OHMSS is the first time Bond and Blofeld meet in the books. That's why they dont know each other as well as they do in YOLT. This script was the most accurate to the book. These were the days before continuity nerds.

** Originally, it was to be established Bond had plastic surgery done to explain why he doesn't look like Sean Connery anymore. And other movies establish that Blofeld is ''constantly'' changing his appearance.

* DoomedByCanon: Sadly for fans of Diana Rigg's character, played straight. Although previous Bond films sometimes deviated wildly from the source material (most notably the previous two films - ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'' and the unofficial ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967''), in this case the filmmakers decided to stick to Fleming's original tragic ending (though at one point there were plans to have OHMSS end with the wedding and the next film, ''Film/DiamondsAreForever'', was to have opened with Tracy's murder.

* MoodWhiplash: The last ten minutes. Made more jarring by the soundtrack, which changes abruptly from a sad reprise of "We Have All The Time in the World" to a loud, brassy version of "The James Bond Theme".

** At the start of the film, Bond evidently has not been searching for Blofeld very effectively, ultimately leading to M pulling him off the assignment. Given his general hyper-competence in previous films, it raises the question of what noodle incidents between films occurred to make him somewhat fall from grace like that.



** If you look closely, you'll see that Bond didn't steal the entire magazine - only the centerfold.

** If you look closely, you'll see that Bond didn't steal the entire magazine - only the centerfold. Which makes him even ''more'' of a cold-hearted bastard.



** This is also in keeping with how Fleming wrote the final scene of the novel, which plays out nearly verbatim in the movie.



* SameLanguageDub: When Bond is passing as Sir Hilary, Hilary's actor is heard instead of Lazenby. Also, Draco is dubbed (by David [=DeKeyser=]) since the actor had a strong Italian accent.

** The usual brassy James Bond Theme sounds as the audience is still reeling from the shock of the surprise ending.

He faces the camera and says "This never happened to the other fella", a reference to the previous James Bond actor, Creator/SeanConnery.

The sixth ''Film/JamesBond'' film, starring Creator/GeorgeLazenby in his only appearance.[[note]]His contract was for 7 movies, but he left because his manager [[ItWillNeverCatchOn thought spy movies were getting outdated, believing hippy movies were the way to go]]. After a couple of hippie movie flops, Lazenby finally decided he had enough and fired him. Though, technically, while this was his only appearance in the official Bond movie series, Lazenby played Bond three times - the two others being a cameo appearance in the film ''The Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E.'' and an episode of ''Alfred Hitchcock Presents''.[[/note]]
