* Roger Moore’s casting itself. The producers were specifically looking for a younger actor to increase their chances of staying in the role for a while, and Moore was three years older than Sean Connery, putting him already near the upper edge of being age-appropriate. But he was so effortlessly suave and debonair he got the part anyway.

* Bond's desperate gambit with the limpet mine on Mr Big's boat. As he and Solitaire are keel-hauled, he knows Big is dead either way, but he's praying the mine goes off ''before'' the boat pulls them over the jagged reef where the barracuda will eat them alive... and it does. But only barely. If a John Barry theme doesn't start playing in your head at that moment...

* Bond escaping the alligator lake by running along their backs. The stunt was actually done with ''real'' gators by their actual owner, Ross Kananga. It took five takes, one of which can be seen on the DVDs - a gator manages to grab Kananga by the heel and chew his shoe off before he gets free! Screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz named Mr Big's alternate identity after Kananga in tribute.

* Solitaire beats Bond at gin rummy. This makes her one of the few people to ever beat James Bond at a card game, much less at anything, in either the books or movies.

* Kananga/Mr. Big's plan is not only comparatively restrained for a Bond film, but actually very clever: by flooding the market with free heroin (which, with his personal wealth and political position, he can afford to do), he'll not only create thousands of new addicts, but also drive the majority of his competitors out of business, leaving him to reap benefits of a monopoly.
