Added DiffLines:

* BeamMeUpScotty: Visual example: Several Bond fans remember Dolly having braces, to coordinate with Jaws' metal teeth. Some even claim that DigitalDestruction erased the braces from more recent ''Moonraker'' prints, although Dolly's actress denies the character ever wearing any. One possible explanation for this misconception involves the oldest VHS having a bit of static appear over Dolly's lips, which might have resembled braces.
