Peter R. Hunt originally wanted to direct You Only Live Twice (1967) but when that assignment was given to Lewis Gilbert, he walked off the series and went on a round the world trip. Ironically he was in Tokyo when he bumped into Albert R. Broccoli and Gilbert who were prepping "You Only Live Twice". Broccoli asked Hunt to direct the second unit on that film with the promise of directing the next entry in the series. See more »
When Bond is fighting the intruder in Tracy's hotel room, the lamp shade gets knocked off and lands on the couch. Moments later, the lamp shade is in the middle of the rug instead. See more »
I've been saying for years, sir, that our special equipment is obsolete. And now, computer analysis reveals an entirely new approach: miniaturization. For instance, radioactive lint. When placed in an opponent's pockets, the anti-personnel and location fix seems fairly obvious.
What we want is a location fix on 007.

During the opening credits, images are shown of Bond girls and villains. (This is the first Bond movie since Goldfinger to feature previous movies' footage in its credits.) Specifics are as follows. *First Set. *Honey Ryder from Dr. No (1962), standing on the beach. *Dr. No from the same, in front of his underground aquarium. *Tatiana Romanova from From Russia with Love (1963), messing around with her hair. *Pussy Galore from Goldfinger (1964), in the barn scene. *Second Set. *The title character from Goldfinger. *Assorted Bond girls from the Goldfinger (1964) / Thunderball (1965) era. *The "Flaming Car Crash" scene from Thunderball (1965). *Third set. *Emilio Largo, the main villain from Thunderball. *Aki, Kissy Suzuki, and a swordsman from You Only Live Twice (1967). *Blofeld's volcano lair exploding from the end of the same. Note the strategic absence of Blofeld from You Only Live Twice, as Blofeld is played by a different actor in this film. See more »
OHMSS is a very good action packed Bond film with a great ending!
George Lazenby played a very good James Bond and its a shame he didn't play the role anymore. OHMSS is a very good 007 film that is filled with lots of realistic fights. I just couldn't believe the ending of the film. I was really surprised. Telly Savales played Blofeld very good but his Blofeld was much different that the late great Donald Plesence's Blofeld. If you like James Bond I think you'll like this one a lot!
