Added DiffLines:

* OldSchoolChivalry: As cited in the "Honor" post above. It's also a slight plot point in the opening sequence. Bond realizes that the supposedly dead assassin is masquerading as his own widow when the veiled "woman" opens her own car door, rather than waiting for any of the surrounding men to do it.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The health farm scene (far longer in the book) came about solely because the alcoholic chain-smoking Fleming was ordered by his doctor to go to one and found the experience so laborious that he began to plot out his next book to give himself some relief from it all.

* ColorMotif: In keeping with her namesake, Domino's clothes are black and white.


Added DiffLines:

* SameLanguageDub: Robert Rietti's voice replaced Adolfo Celi's[[note]] Which caused problems when Celi was cast as Rodrigo Borgia in the 1981 BBC mini-series ''The Borgias''; the casting director had no idea Celi had been dubbed in the film, and his almost impenetrable Italian accent rendered most of his lines a garbled mess.[[/note]], while Nikki Van Der Zyl overdubbed Claudine Auger's French accent in the role of Domino. Amazingly enough, Italian-born Luciana Paluzzi, who played villainess Fiona Volpe, was NOT same-language-dubbed.

->'''Fiona Volpe:''' But of course, I forgot your ego, Mr. Bond. James Bond, the one where he has to make love to a woman, and she starts to hear heavenly choirs singing. She repents, and turns to the side of right and virtue...but not this one! What a blow it must have been. You, having a failure!
