* {{Tuckerization}}: This film marks the first appearance of the character Major Boothroyd (later played by Desmond Llewellyn and known simply as "Q"), based on fan and gun expert Geoffrey Boothroyd who informed Fleming the gun he had James Bond using was a wimpy ladies' pistol. (This also formed the basis for Bond's forced gun upgrade in the book and this movie.) The real-life Geoffrey Boothroyd appears in a vintage featurette on the ''Dr. No'' DVD and Blu-ray, in which he demonstrates the relative stopping powers of the two Bond guns, plus his own favorite, a Ruger .44 Magnum.

* ItWillNeverCatchOn: First, it was ignored by many studios. Then Creator/UnitedArtists [[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail gave little money and attention on the US release]]. 22 movies later...

* EnforcedMethodActing: Sean Connery is truly terrified of spiders. The legs of a stuntman were used when the tarantula crawled onto Bond. Note the shot when the spider is on his shoulder -- it's walking on a pane of glass. Once you've seen it you can't unsee it.

** To a lesser extent, Jack Lord as Felix Leiter. Lord wanted a bigger role, more money, and co-star billing to appear in the next movie, which was declined, and Lord was too much in demand for leading roles to return to what was effectively a bit part. Leiter would be played by a succession of other actors in subsequent films.

** The first draft script strayed quite far from the book. In this version, Dr. No was a monkey god worshipped by native islanders, and the human villain was someone else. Saltzman and Broccoli were unsatisfied with this approach and got Richard Maibaum to rewrite it to be closer to the novel. The original screenwriter was not pleased with the rewrite and had his name removed from the script. Maibaum would have a hand in writing all but three Bond movies through ''LicenseToKill''.

** To a lesser extent, Jack Lord as Felix Leiter. This movie was Jack Lord's breakout role. Afterward, he became "too successful," too much in demand for leading roles to return to what was effectively a bit part. Leiter would be played by a succession of other actors in subsequent films.
