* ActorAllusion: Leonard Barr (Shady Tree) was a stand up comic in real life.
* CastTheExpert: Shady Tree was played by a real life stand up comic, Leonard Barr.
* DeletedScene:
** A cameo by Creator/SammyDavisJr.
** Plenty O'Toole having dinner with Bond, ending with Plenty inviting herself to Bond's apartment, where she struts her stuff once she's been stripped down to her bare essentials... only to have a NakedFreakOut when the "pervert's convention" throws her out the window.
** After being thrown out the window Plenty returns to Bond's apartment soaking wet and wearing nothing but a white ModestyTowel to hide her shame in the hopes of retrieving her clothes and to see what has become of Bond. After seeing him having sex with Tiffany an angry Plenty almost leaves... but not before going through Tiffany's purse and finding her address. It doesn't work out well for her...
* EndOfAnEra:
** Due to endless litigation between the producers and Kevin [=McClory=], this would be the last Eon Bond film where Blofeld and SPECTRE would appear as BigBad[=/=]GreaterScopeVillain and NebulousEvilOrganisation respectively until the 2015 movie ''Film/{{Spectre}}''.
** It was also this for classic Bond, since Sean Connery only agreed to one additional movie with UA boss David Picker, and, minus [=McClory=]'s ''Never Say Never Again'', refused to deal with any part of the franchise ever again [[note]]or at least until the 2005 ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' video game, which bridged the gap between Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. [[/note]] EON had to recast the role for the third time in a row, going with Roger Moore, who was considered originally.
* ExecutiveMeddling: When the film aired on ABC the network had the scene where Lana Wood, as Plenty O'Toole, walked around wearing nothing but a flimsy pair of see through pink panties artificially altered to make it appear as though she were wearing a black bra with black panties - despite the fact that her backless purple satin dress clearly showed that she had no bra.
* FatalMethodActing: [[spoiler: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.]]
* MetaCasting: Leonard Barr (Shady Tree) was a stand up comic in real life.
* MoneyDearBoy: Sean Connery received $1,250,000 but used it to set up a charity to help poorer families in Scotland with their education costs.
* OldShame: 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.
* TheOtherDarrin: Blofeld (which makes him get ''hair'' this time), Leiter (the fourth actor to portray him!) and Bond himself.
* ScullyBox: Lana Wood needed one when on screen with Sean Connery. Except of course, in the scenes where she was lacking her clothes, for which she was given extra high heels to wear in order to compensate for the height difference, as a body double would not have worked for obvious reasons.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: The codes that control the satellite are stored on a tape cassette that protrudes prominently in Tiffany's bikini bottom. Today, a flash drive would've been more discrete, though there'd still be the communication SNAFU between Bond and Tiffany
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Creator/AdamWest was offered the part of James Bond for this film. He declined out of respect, saying he felt the role should only be played by a British actor.
** Creator/BurtReynolds and Creator/ClintEastwood also declined Bond for the same reason.
** In Richard Maibaum's original screenplay, the villain was not Blofeld, but [[Film/{{Goldfinger}} Auric Goldfinger's]] vengeful twin brother, to also be played by Gert Frobe. This was scrapped when Tom Mankiewicz was brought in for rewrites.
* YouLookFamiliar: Charles Gray (Blofeld) earlier played a British agent in ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice''. Ironically, said agent is murdered by SPECTRE, so he is basically playing the man ultimately responsible for his own death.
