Added DiffLines:

* DeletedScene: Two scenes were shot but cut from the final film.
** The first involved a scene on the Havelock's boat just before Bond starts working with Melina on the case. Melina tells Bond that she tried to call him at his hotel room, to which he replied that he didn't make it back last night. His sex life is mentioned by both characters before Bond asks that they work together. Director John Glen cut the scene as he felt it did not fit Melina's character.
** The second major cut was to the ice hockey fight sequence. The action was originally longer, featuring more stunts and Bond taking control of a Zamboni ice rink machine. The scene in the final film ends at the third period buzzer, but extra shots were filmed of Bond dumping snow from the machine on the three goons trapped in the net, and a final reveal shot of actor Charles Dance as one of the skaters.

* LawyerFriendlyCameo: That is supposed to be Blofeld in the intro, but for legal reasons, he's not named.



* 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.
