Fatal Method Acting: Closely averted by Lana Wood when the cement block she was tied to in the swimming pool slipped down the sloping floor of the pool and dragged her underneath. Fortunately crew members spotted and rescued her.
Money, Dear Boy: Sean Connery received $1,250,000 but used it to set up a charity to help poorer families in Scotland with their education costs.
Old Shame: Defied, at least as far as Jill St. John is concerned. In the "Bond Girls Are Forever" TV special, she has a few fairly scornful things to say about actresses who view their Bond Girl roles this way.
The Other Darrin: Blofeld, Leiter (the fourth actor to portray him!) and Bond himself.
