* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Crossing into WTHCastingAgency: How could [=MI6=] ever think that Series/MrBean was a good choice to look after Bond? He's not; [[RuleOfFunny thats the whole point]]. In-universe, he's probably just the only guy they've got in that area. He even outright states he's not used to this sort of thing, the spying business.
** Creator/MaxVonSydow is Blofeld!
** [[Literature/TheDayOfTheJackal Edward Fox]] is M!
** Lippe (not ''Count'' Lippe), the GiantMook that attacks Bond at the Shrublands, was played by the late Pat Roach, a British wrestler/stunt man known for appearing in all of the Indiana Jones movies (most famously, he was the guy in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' who was cut up by the airplane propeller). And he was [[Series/AufWiedersehenPet Bomber]]. Weirdly, his scene was written mostly by Auf Pet writers Clement and Le Frenais.

* ChannelHop: It was originally released by WarnerBros, but official Bond distributor MGM purchased the rights to own every Bond film (as they won the rights to ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'' along with the book adaptation ones in a lawsuit). Eventually, they obtained all remaining rights to Blofeld and SPECTRE, but only after Kevin [=McClory=] died and his sons took over.

** Even so, it appears as though MGM doesn't want to acknowledge the fact that they own the rights to this film. All video copies post-1997 doesn't feature the studio's logo on the packaging, and this film now opens with the logo for Creator/OrionPictures, which MGM owns, unlike the other Bond films which open with either a Creator/UnitedArtists logo or Leo the Lion.


Added DiffLines:

** Creator/RogerMoore was to appear in a cameo alongside Connery at the end, which could have been epic. The decision was scrapped most likely for the above reason.

* ShoutOut: Clement and Lefrenais reuse the dialogue from the urine test scene from the first episode of the first series of ''Series/Porridge''. This was Connery's suggestion, apparently. So Sean Connery is playing Bond playing Norman Stanley Fletcher.

* DuelingMovies: With ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'' starring RogerMoore. Neither movie particularly wowed critics, and made roughly the same amount of box office business.

* CreatorKiller: While he never went broke (he was filthy rich), Kevin [=McClory=]'s obsession with this film, his highly bitter and well publicized legal and possible personal feud with Albert Broccoli and then his daughter after Cubby died, along with this film not impressing critics as much as hoped, led to him never being visible on high level Hollywood again.
