** Norman Burton as Felix Leiter.

to:

** Norman Burton as Felix Leiter. Leiter, who comes across as being far more bad-tempered and [[PoliceAreUseless useless]] than his previous appearances. It doesn't help that this comes right before David Hedison's version in the next movie, which (at least until Jeffrey Wright came along in the Creator/DanielCraig films) was widely considered the most popular incarnation of Leiter.

Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: Bond's line, "[[AssShove Alimentary, my dear Leiter]]" almost didn't make it into the film. [[DontExplainTheJoke The line refers to the Alimentary Canal, another name for the Gastrointestinal Tract, which terminates in...well, you know what.]] Apparently, Albert R. Broccoli demanded that screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz remove the line for fear that nobody would get the joke.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy:
** Charles Gray's interpretation of Blofeld is arguably the least popular incarnation of the character to date, being much less menacing than his predecessors.
** Tiffany Case, who very quickly becomes a DamselScrappy as she comes to rely on Bond to save her hide on one too many occasions.
** Norman Burton as Felix Leiter.

** Tiffany calls Bond Comics/{{Superman}}. Director Guy Hamilton declined directing ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'' to direct ''Film/{{Superman}}'', although legal problems meant he had to drop out.

Added DiffLines:

** During the chase through the Las Vegas Strip, Bond drives his Mustang through a narrow ally on the two wheels of his right side, only to exit the alley on the wheels of his ''left side''. Chalk this one up to bad editing, one which the filmmakers attempted to rectify by simply flipping the shot of Bond and Tiffany inside the car.

Added DiffLines:

* RecycledScript: In a lot of ways, this book is a remake of ''Literature/LiveAndLetDie'' - Bond goes to America, battles a gang that specializes in smuggling some precious mineral, and entices a HighHeelFaceTurn from its sole female member.

* SpecialEffectFailure:
** Connery's increased salary for the movie meant that a cheaper effects company had to be used to cut costs, and it shows with the exploding helicopters at the end and the KillSat laser beams and its effects towards the end of the film.

Added DiffLines:

* NauseaFuel: Fleming lovingly draws out ''every single detail'' of how disgusting the mud baths at Saratoga (not to mention its customers) are. It's topped off with one of the most disturbing torture scenes in the book, if not the whole series.

** The KillSat itself, which somehow manages to look worse and worse in each shot. In the shots of the rocket launching and separating it actually looks decent, at about the standards of the similar sequences from ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice''. By the time it takes out a Chinese military base, the effects standard has dropped to being barely above a contemporary episode of ''Series/DoctorWho''.

In the shots of the rocket launching and separating it actually looks decent, at about the standards of the similar sequences from ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice''. When the satellite sheds its outer casing and fully deploys, it looks like something you'd see in a cheaper episode of ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}''.
