** Sean Connery would later appear in the 1974 film adaptation of ''[[Literature/MurderOnTheOrientExpress Murder on the Orient Express]]''.
** In this film Bond faces off against what would be the first in a long line of burly blonde Aryan looking henchmen in the form of Donald "Red" Grant. A little less than 50 years after this film was made the world was given a blonde James Bond (in contrast to the usual dark haired Bonds) in Creator/DanielCraig and darn if they don't look similiar.

Added DiffLines:

** Red Grant is very popular as a Bond villain and inspired many blonde, quiet, muscular henchmen in later Bond films.
** As far as Bond Lancers go, Karim Bey Has a lot of chemistry with Bond.


Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror: Tatiana, a loyal Soviet clerk that's good at her job and has no malice against anyone, is manipulated by a traitor through her devotion to country to commit treason and played by Bond to defect out of infatuation as the audience fully knows Bond has no intention of settling down with her, likely leaving her to an uncertain future in an enemy country.
** Karim's off-handed remark that the West and the USSR's respective uses of Gypsies and Bulgars as muscle has ignited a blood feud between them.

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: Kerim wasted most of his youth being a drunken thug and [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty sexual predator]], and even in the present seems to have few regrets, at one point giving a [[CharacterFilibuster rather long speech]] in defense of the NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization that both Bond and the narrator appear to agree with. Thankfully toned down in the film; he's still [[UnscrupulousHero unscrupulous]] but [[LovableRogue more lovably so]].

** NarmCharm: Having epic music for that mundane scene arguably makes it better.

** NarmCharm: Having epic music for that mundane scene arguably makes it better. Also kind of helps that Bond kills someone (BondOneLiner and all) and the music kicks in right on the scene before that.

* CompleteMonster: [[PsychoForHire Donovan "Red" Grant]] [[note]]changed to Donald in the film[[/note]] has been afflicted with a burning urge to kill during the full moon since his youth. Starting with animals, he graduated to vagrants and tramps before becoming a SerialKiller who targeted young woman in his native Ireland. Escaping justice by joining the military, Grant would defect to the Russians after he realized they could offer him the bloodshed he craved. A ruthless, efficient killer, Grant rose to the position of head executioner of the clandestine group SMERSH and was indulged in being allowed to murder with impunity during the full moon. This even extended to Grant being allowed access to prisons with {{Chainsaw|Good}}s during those nights. Bond's chosen executioner, Grant kills his ally Darko Kerim and proceeds to try to murder Bond and his lover, admitting that all he cares about in life is his ability to murder people.
