* WagTheDirector: Attempted, but failed by Roger Moore, who disliked the scene where Bond kicks Locque's car over the edge of the cliff. He suggested that the scene be changed to depict the added weight of Locque's "calling card" that Bond throws in causing the car to fall over the cliff by itself, but director John Glen said that his suggestion was the type of silly stuff they were trying to get away from.
