** Red Grant has inspired a long list of Aryan-looking near-undefeatable henchmen (whom Bond always manages to defeat). He's been imitated with [[Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice Hans]], [[Film/TheLivingDaylights Necros]], [[Film/TomorrowNeverDies Mister Stamper]], and other Aryan-looking villains. It's arguable that ''RockyIV'''s Ivan Drago is also meant to evoke Red Grant.

** A tragic variant: like it says on the main page, ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' was chosen as the next film after UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy said it was his favorite Bond book. The advance print arrived at the White House on November 21, 1963. Advisers thought that Kennedy would enjoy the film, after he returned from [[WhoShotJFK his trip to Texas]]....
*** Most sources say he did get to see it; he'd had a private screening the night before departing for Texas.

* TroubledProduction: Pedro Armendariz (playing Kerim Bey) was critically ill and had to shoot all his scenes within two weeks [[note]] Some documentaries even mention that he had to be literally propped up by two set hands as he couldn't stand still anymore due to his illness.[[/note]] The script was constantly being rewritten all the way through. Major special effects (such as the wall of fire in the boat scene) failed putting the production desperately behind schedule. Director Terence Young and art director Michael White were nearly in a helicopter accident that could've killed them both. SeanConnery himself was almost killed while filming the scene where Bond is chased by the SPECTRE thugs in the helicopter when the inexperienced helicopter pilot flew in too close and almost took his head off. It's a tribute to the professionalism of the cast and some extremely clever filming by editor Peter Hunt (a lot of Rosa Klebb's dialogue was rewritten and refilmed simply by having Lotte Lenya perform against a back projection) that the film survived and became so successful.
