Bond has implied sex with a few women, but all the viewer sees is some kissing.

Brief female rear nudity is glimpsed as Tatiana is viewed through a curtain getting into bed (this shot is usually deleted from TV broadcasts). Later in the scene, a camera crew hides behind one-way glass to film Bond and Tatiana have sex - the fact the act is filmed is confirmed in later dialogue, but nothing is shown. At the end of the film Bond is shown viewing the roll of film, but we don't see anything.

Sexual innuendo. This includes a scene with lesbian subtext involving Klebb.

The masseuse undresses herself into her bra and panties and massages Grant


Early in the movie, a man is strangled to death by another man, as part of a SPECTRE training course. Later in the film, the same man tries to strangle Bond, however he escapes.

Rosa Klebb's reading of Donald Grant's file include him as a convicted murderer. Later in the scene, Klebb delivers a vicious punch to Grant's abdomen with brass knuckles (a test of his physical strength).

Bond and a colleague assassinate an enemy using a sniper rifle. The enemy falls a short distance to the ground, screaming. The camera shows him partially hitting the ground, although the image is dimly lit and quick. No graphic detail is shown.

Bond slaps a woman in an attempt to get information from her.

A helicopter is shot down, then explodes upon hitting the ground.

Grant traps Bond in a train compartment and threatens to kill him with sadistic slowness. However, Bond is able to offer him a bribe of gold sovereigns in his attache case, only to trick Grant into setting its booby trap to allow Bond to attack the stunned assassin. The ensuing fight scene is rather rough and hard-hitting, but still relatively mild. As they grapple, Grant starts to strangle Bond, but Bond is able to reach his knife hidden in the attache case and stab Grant in the shoulder. The wound is never seen, however there is blood visible on Bond's hand and knife. Bond then strangles Grant with his own cord.

A large, chaotic action sequence, involving many people firing guns or fighting. No graphic detail is shown.

A boat chase, involving several explosions and many gunshots (no-one is hit). Some of the boats are blown up and lit on fire, and one man is seen partially on fire. He jumps into the water.

A woman uses a poisonous knife attached to her shoe to try and kill Bond. Bond pins her up against a wall with a chair to defend himself. The woman is then shot, although no graphic detail is shown.

Explosions, fist-fights, and shootouts.


The word "hell" is used twice.


Bond smokes and drinks.

Four of the films stars and five of the costars were seen smoking.

Even the secret password ("Got a match?" "I use a lighter") focused attention on cigarettes.

A woman drinks wine with chloral hydrate in it, causing her to fall asleep. She is fine after waking up.


There is a very long fight on a train in the dark, which may scare young children.

A helicopter explodes in the sky, then crashes to the ground with a larger explosion.

Some deaths.
