* Bond rides his Mustang on its side through the alleys of the Las Vegas Strip; [[Film/LicenceToKill eighteen years later]], he would do the same stunt with an eighteen-wheeler.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Bond's final confrontation with Blofeld was meant to involve a lengthy chase scene, but had to be cut for cost reasons.

to:

* WTHCastingAgency: Charles Grey as a now fully-haired Blofeld, not helped by the film's decidedly more playful take on the character.
** Norman Burton as Felix Leiter, who was considered to be too old and physically unconvincing as Bond's American counterpart.

Added DiffLines:

** As terrifying as the scene of Mr. Kidd burning alive is, one can clearly make out Putter Smith's heavy fire retardant gloves as he is set alight. Moments later, when Mr. Wint is blown up by his own bomb, none of his remains can be seen falling into the water.

** 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.
