Did You Know?
- Director Peter R. Hunt had edited many James Bond movies. The job of editor and second unit directing went to John Glen, who directed several Bond movies.
- When Bond is emptying out his desk, he takes out a belt with a knife on it and places it on top of the desk. Two shots later it is seen back in the drawer, then back on top of the desk.
- Draco: My apologies for the way you were brought here. I wasn't sure you'd accept a *formal* invitation.
- James Bond: There's always something formal about the point of a pistol.
Atom User Reviews
The film contains some of the most exhilarating action sequences ever to reach the screen, a touching love story, and a nice subplot that has agent 007 crossing (and even threatening to resign from) Her Majesty's Secret Service. The problem is with Bond himself. Following Sean Connery's departure after You Only Live Twice, the film makers had to come up with a replacement. The man they chose, a model named George Lazenby, is boring, and his ineffectualness lowers the picture's quality.
Hunt, who served as editor on the first three Connery films, gives Lazenby’s fist fights a whipcrack intensity and the ski-jumping, stock car-racing, bobsled-sliding finale is one of the series’ best.
