** Also, during the infamous laser scene, the special effects team (positioned beneath the table, using a flamethrower to guide the laser light) did not stop torching the laser where they intended. Connery's visible distress is genuine, and he complained when shooting was over.

* AwesomeDearBoy: Around the time when The Living Daylights came out, a TV special was produced reminiscing about all things Bond over the years. Several past Bond Girls were interviewed, and most of them seemed to have a problem with the term "Bond Girl," for various reasons. Honor Blackman (Pussy Galore), on the other hand, said that not only did she feel that Bond Girl was the correct term, but that she was proud to call herself one. This is notable in that Blackman was older than the other actresses who were interviewed for the special.

** Originally, Creator/OrsonWelles was considered for the Goldfinger role, but proved too expensive. (He would later play Le Chiffre in the Bond satire [[Film/CasinoRoyale1967]].) Folk singer and actor Theodore Bikel also tested for the role.
