Trivia

James Bond tells Draco, regarding Tracy, "Her price is far above rubies or even your million pounds," The first six words are from the Bible's Proverbs 31:10, which describes a worthy woman.

Features the only signature gun barrel sequence of all Bond films in which Bond drops down on one knee while shooting at the audience. It's also the only version of the sequence where the descending blood completely erases Bond's image, leaving only the red circle.
As of 2009, George Lazenby is the youngest actor to portray 007 at age 29 during filming. The rest of the actors and their ages, in no particular order: Sean Connery - 31, Roger Moore - 45, Timothy Dalton - 40, Pierce Brosnan - 41 and Daniel Craig - 38.
There are many reasons why George Lazenby only made one appearance as James Bond. According to the DVD Documentary, here are some of the main reasons: 1. Lazenby's youthful cockiness rankled Albert R. Broccoli's nerves. One incident mentioned is Lazenby skiing down the slopes on his own (resulting in the broken arm) and a moment of arrogance on Lazenby's part that spoiled a cast and crew party. 2. The notoriously harsh British tabloids writing up unfavorable stories about Lazenby and how he fails to measure up to Sean Connery, thereby swaying public opinion against the movie before it was released. One incident cited by Lazenby was during an interview with a reporter in the commissary in which Diana Rigg jokingly yelled from across the room "I'm having garlic for lunch, darling! I hope you are too!" This lead to an article in which Rigg supposedly hated Lazenby so much that "She eats garlic before love scenes". 3. Lazenby, believed that the Bond series was over in the wake of more sophisticated films like The Graduate (1967) and Easy Rider (1969), and the tuxedo-clad secret agent was out of touch with the newly liberated 1970s. He mentioned to his agent that he wasn't sure if he wanted to play Bond again, even before this film was released. The producers heard this and were none too pleased. Lazenby had been offered a seven picture deal and had signed a letter of intent to star in Diamonds Are Forever (1971). He had even been paid an initial fee installment which he later refunded. Although some claim the film was a box-office failure, it was in fact a huge hit, recouping more than ten times its cost and becoming the second highest grossing film of the year at the worldwide box-office.
The producers originally intended to explain the change of lead actors in the film by saying that Bond had undergone plastic surgery because his "old" face was now too well known by foreign spies and terrorists for him to go undercover, but they then decided not to refer at all to the change, and thus hopefully minimize the public attention being paid to George Lazenby replacing Sean Connery. However, after the opening action sequence, right before the titles, Bond states "This never happened to the other fellow," an intentionally comedic reference to the change in actors.
The theme "We Have All the Time in the World" was the last thing that Louis Armstrong ever recorded - he died two years later.
During the filming at Piz Gloria, the cast and crew received their per diems in cash. Upon seeing George Lazenby with a suitcase stuffed full of cash, Telly Savalas invited him to a late-night poker game he regularly held with crew members and promptly relieved Lazenby of having to carry so much extra weight. Upon hearing of this, Harry Saltzman visited the location, joined the game over Savalas's protests, and won back Lazenby's money. He then informed Savalas in no uncertain terms that he was not to victimize his "boy" (Lazenby) again.
Sean Connery later said that he would have preferred to do a Bond film like this one, as opposed to You Only Live Twice (1967).
Blofeld's headquarters was a partially completed restaurant on top of Mount Schilthorn. The owners allowed filming on condition EON paid $125,000 to refit the interior and construct a helicopter pad. When the restaurant opened it was given the name Piz Gloria used in the film. The only public access to the restaurant is by cable car (from Mürren or Stechelberg). The Piz Gloria was the first established revolving mountain restaurant in the world.
Timothy Dalton was offered the part of James Bond, but turned it down feeling that, at 22, he was too young and relatively unexperienced to take the role. Dalton would go on to play Bond in The Living Daylights (1987) and Licence to Kill (1989) nearly twenty years later.
This is one of the most faithful adaptations of an Ian Fleming novel; virtually everything in the book occurs in the film. Staying so close to the source actually caused some continuity problems due to the different order of the films. For example, in this film Bond and Blofeld seem to be meeting for the first time, despite having met face-to-face in the film version of You Only Live Twice (1967). Some details are different: Count Bleauville is changed to Count Bleauchamp, and Ruby Windsor becomes Ruby Barrett. The situations of Bond's taking a leave of absence, and his discovery by Blofeld, are different. Tracy is not kidnapped. Blofeld is completely different in appearance from Telly Savalas, being described as having long silvery-white hair, an aquiline nose, a wrinkled forehead, a slender body, a nostril that has been eaten away by tertiary syphilis, and no earlobes. Savalas's Blofeld has none of these features - he doesn't even have a European accent. However, his earlobes were clipped back to serve a plot element.
As Bond passes a janitor in Draco's headquarters, the man can be heard whistling the Goldfinger (1964) theme.
The first James Bond film in which Bond is seen openly crying.
This is the last time that John Barry's original Dr. No (1962) arrangement of the James Bond Theme would be used onscreen. It would however, continue to be used in trailers etc. as late as Licence to Kill (1989).
This is Christopher Nolan's favourite Bond movie, and many references can be found in the movie Inception (2010). He said, "What I liked about it that we've tried to emulate in this film is there's a tremendous balance in that movie of action and scale and romanticism and tragedy and emotion."
The title of the book/film, "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" was a corruption of a very familiar phrase known to most British people. For many decades, all correspondence sent from Government departments e.g. the Tax Office, Social Services etc, arrived in envelopes which did not have a stamp, but had the words, "On Her ("His" when there was a male monarch) Majesty's Service" printed on the envelope. Such correspondence was usually referred to as, "OHMS".
George Lazenby suggested a scene where Bond skis off a cliff and opens a parachute. This was scrapped, as the filmmakers lacked the resources to pull it off. It was used as the opening for The Spy Who Loved Me (1977).
Sean Connery was offered a then very large salary of $1 million to make this film but declined.
In the original novel, the casino where Bond and Tracy play baccarat is in fact Casino Royale where Bond makes annual visits to the grave of Vesper Lynd nearby.
The only James Bond film which is both entirely set and entirely filmed in Europe.
George Lazenby wanted to do most of his own stunts but the studio wouldn't allow him. During the shooting of one of the stunt scenes, Lazenby actually broke his arm, thereby delaying the filming of many of his later scenes. When Bond is taken to Blofeld's lab at Piz Gloria, Lazenby's broken arm in its cast is hidden by his coat which was draped over his arm. Blofeld's guard removes it from him as Lazenby was unable to do so. The guard removing the jacket was played by Yuri Borienko who ironically had had his nose broken by Lazenby in the screen test fight scene that the actor had done to land the part.
The film performed admirably, out-grossing its nearest competitor almost two to one at the U.S. box office where, according to Variety, it was the most popular film in the country for four solid weeks. It generated enough rentals at the box-office to claim ninth position on the box office chart for the year 1970. The persistent belief that it was a flop arises from its disappointing showing in comparison to the previous three Sean Connery Bond films, all of which made more than 100 million dollars worldwide, whereas this film grossed 87 million worldwide.
Certain film techniques appear in the James Bond series for the first time in this picture: slow motion (when Bond is knocked out in his bedroom), flashback (Bond remembering Tracy being captured), and "breaking the fourth wall" (Lazenby looking into the camera briefly, immediately after his line "This never happened to the other fella"). Though it seems to be a self referential remark (Lazenby replaced Sean Connery as Bond) it also has a meaning in the context of the story.
The John Barry score for this movie was the first in the EON Production series to extensively use synthesizers and electric guitars.
Whilst cracking open a safe in a Swiss lawyer's office, Bond reads a copy of "Playboy". This is a nod to the fact that "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" first appeared in "Playboy". "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" was the first Ian Fleming's James Bond novels to be serialized in the magazine, appearing in the May 1963 issue of "Playboy". It was followed by a serialized, shortened version of the novel You Only Live Twice (not the film version) in the April 1964 issue. The issue in the film is February 1969 featuring centerfold Lorrie Menconi (the cover of the magazine and the top part of her centerfold can be seen).
First Bond film since From Russia with Love (1963) to use an instrumental opening theme. The decision to forgo the usual song was prompted by the conclusion that any lyric composition that attempted to include the full title of the film would be awkward and at best sound like a humorous Gilbert & Sullivan song, which would be inappropriate for the film series. As of 2009, no other film in the series since has done so.
The motto, "Orbis non sufficit", given to Bond when he researches his own coat of arms before impersonating Sir Hilary Bray, is Latin for The World Is Not Enough (1999) which was later used as a Bond film title.
At least for German and Italian audiences, the jump from Sean Connery to George Lazenby wasn't as sharp as for the rest of the world: He still sounded the same. Actors Gert Günther Hoffmann, and Pino Locchi, the regular German and Italian voices of Connery, dubbed the new James Bond as well.
Adam West, a personal friend of Albert R. Broccoli, was offered the part of James Bond for the movie. West said that while he was very tempted, he ultimately turned it down feeling the role should be played by an English Actor.
Whereas ads for You Only Live Twice (1967) loudly touted "Sean Connery IS James Bond", the marketing for On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) downplayed the name of the replacement actor completely. This is the last time that the name of the actor playing Bond appears below the title, and in several of the ads for the film, there is an image of a faceless Bond. Since George Lazenby was a virtual unknown when he was cast as Bond, initial teaser advertising for the film emphasized the Bond character rather than the actor playing him. United Artists would later say that this marketing strategy was a mistake which hurt the film's performance at the box office.
First time M's home (called Quarterdeck in this movie) is seen in a James Bond movie in the series. Casino Royale (2006) was the second. M's home is also seen in the unofficial Casino Royale (1967).
This was the longest Bond film, at 140 minutes, until the release of Casino Royale (2006) in 2006 which runs 4 minutes longer. In 2015, Spectre became the longest running Bond film, at four minutes longer than Casino Royale.
George Lazenby said he experienced difficulties during shooting, not receiving any coaching despite his lack of acting experience, and with director Peter R. Hunt never addressing him directly, only through his assistant. Lazenby also declared that Hunt also asked the rest of the crew to keep a distance from him, as "Peter thought the more I was alone, the better I would be as James Bond."
Film debut of George Lazenby.
George Baker provides the voice of Bond when 007 is pretending to be Sir Hilary Bray.
Having secured a suit ordered but uncollected by Sean Connery and getting a Rolex and haircut like him, George Lazenby talked his way into meeting Albert R. Broccoli, Harry Saltzman and Peter R. Hunt. After bluffing his through the meeting and falsely claiming he had wide acting credits, he secured a screentest. Lazenby then confessed to Hunt that he made it all up and that he wasn't an actor. Hunt laughed and told him, "You just strolled in here and managed to fool two of the most ruthless bastards in the business. You're an actor".
For the opening sequence, railway sleepers (railroad ties) were buried under the sand to allow Bond's Aston Martin to drive on the beach.
Bond's sliding along the ice whilst firing a machine gun in the attack on Piz Gloria was a spur-of-the-moment idea from director Peter R. Hunt.
Willy Bogner performed some spectacular skiing feats for the filming of chase sequences for this movie. These included skiing backwards downhill with a hand-held camera, sometimes placing it between his legs and being towed behind a bobsleigh along the bobsled course.
Bond's line to the Saint Bernard about going to get the brandy was improvised by George Lazenby.
Kevin McClory considered casting George Lazenby as James Bond in Never Say Never Again (1983) but Lazenby was dropped from consideration when Sean Connery confirmed that he wanted the role.
In order to help get himself the part of James Bond, George Lazenby went to the same tailor and barber that worked with Sean Connery so when he showed up at Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman's production offices, he'd look more like Connery. Coincidentally, Broccoli was present in the barber's shop when Lazenby showed up for his haircut. This in part did help him establish an image and led to getting the role of James Bond.
The sequence where Bond finds Tracy waiting for him in his hotel suite has since been used as one of the scenes performed by actors auditioning for the role of James Bond.
George Lazenby also bears the distinction of being the only 007 actor who was born and raised outside the United Kingdom. He's from Australia. (Pierce Brosnan was born in Ireland but moved to the UK when fairly young.)
The picture of Tracy's mother was a photograph of Diana Rigg's own mother.
Many Olympic ski competitors as well as other ski experts contributed as body doubles, extras and supporting roles for performing the necessary skiing sequences in the movie. The principal actors were not allowed to ski in the movie due to insurance regulations.

The film was originally going to end with Bond and Tracy driving off in their car after the wedding and Tracy's death being the opening scene of Diamonds Are Forever (1971). This was abandoned after George Lazenby's departure.

Joanna Lumley makes one of her first screen appearances in this movie. Unlike other "Avengers" actors and actresses (Patrick Macnee, Diana Rigg, Honor Blackman), she is the only one to have appeared in a Bond movie *before* starring in The Avengers (1961). Despite having a very small part as one of Blofeld's girls, she spent two months on the production, dubbing the voices of a whole line up of international beauties in German, Chinese and Norwegian accents, in addition to teaching many of the actresses who played Blofeld's patients how to crochet, which some of them can be seen doing on film. With time, some of the women preferred crocheting garments over attending parties for the cast. Joanna Lumley has also read an abridged version of the Ian Fleming novel On Her Majesty's Secret Service on BBC Radio 4.
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.
Lyrics were originally intended for John Barry's main theme, but were later rejected in favor of Louis Armstrong's memorable rendition of "We Have All The Time In The World". This love theme composed by John Barry and written by Hal David was the last song ever recorded by Louis Armstrong. A re-mix of the song "We Have All The Time In The World" was a No. #3 hit in the UK twenty five years after the movie was originally released. The song has also been covered by Iggy Pop and it can be heard on the David Arnold Bond song compilation album, "Shaken and Stirred: the David Arnold James Bond Project". This album also features a cover of the film's OHMSS main title theme performed by The Propellerheads.
Product placements, brand integrations and promotional tie-ins for this movie include the Aston Martin 1969 DBS; Gucci suitcase; Hennessy Brandy; Playboy Magazine; Campari; the Ford Motor Company, particularly the 1969 Ford Mercury Cougar Convertible; Jack Daniel's Whiskey; Schilthorn Piz Gloria Revolving Restaurant; Krug Champagne; Dom Perignon Champagne, particularly a Dom Perignon '57; and Rolex Watches including the Rolex Submariner 5513 and Rolex Chronograph 6238 watches.
Gabriele Ferzetti was only 13 years older than Diana Rigg, who played his daughter.
During filming, George Lazenby was fooling around on horseback and caused Bernard Lee to fall into a fence and tear his leg open. As no doctor was available, the local vet stitched the gash up.
Every year the Swiss army dynamite certain dangerous mountainsides to remove the threat of avalanches. As the storyline called for such an avalanche, the film production worked alongside the army in scouting appropriate sites for filming. Having chosen one, they were dismayed to discover that the avalanche occurred naturally before the crew could get there to film it so the resulting one seen in the film is a combination of stock footage, special effects, and clever use of close-ups and sound.

The surname of the Ernst Stavro Blofeld character was allegedly named after Thomas Blofeld with whom James Bond creator Ian Fleming went to school with at Eton College. Also known as Tom Blofeld, he was a Norfolk farmer, a fellow member of Boodle's, and the Chairman of the Country Gentleman's Asssociation. His son is cricket commentator Henry Blofeld. Ernst Blofeld's date of birth in the literary James Bond stories is the same date as Fleming's birthday which is 28th May 1908. Moreover, Ernest Cuneo was a friend of Fleming's. According to the book "Martinis, Girls and Guns: 50 Years of 007" (2003) by Martin Sterling and Gary Morecambe: "Cuneo may have also have inspired Blofeld's forenames - it is but a short leap from Ernest Cuneo to Ernst Stavro". According to the book "For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming + James Bond" (2009) by Ben Macintyre: "Alternatively, Blofeld may owe his name to China scholar John Blofeld, who was a member of Fleming's club Boodles, and whose father was named Ernst". In addition, the book "The Bond Code: The Dark World of Ian Fleming and James Bond" (2008) by Philip Gardner states: "The name is also revealing in a psychological way. Ernst is Teutonic for 'earnest', and Stavros is Greek for 'victor', and so he is the 'earnest victor'", and "the name Blofeld means 'blue field', a swipe at his own blue blood rampant in the field, like heraldry", and moreover, "As the creator of SPECTRE, Blofeld is in reality the spectre of Ian Fleming that looms ever present within his divided mind".
Though George Lazenby made only one Bond film (despite being offered a 7 year contract) He actually made two APPERANCES as James Bond. This was the first. The second was in The Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E.: The Fifteen Years Later Affair (1983) where he helps Napoleon Solo and Iliya Kuriakin in a street fight from his car. Admittedly he is uncredited as James Bond (in favour of an abbreviation J.B.) but his performance is so obviously Bond-ish that it's impossible for him not to be James Bond. All the elements are there a tuxedo, Walther PPK, cool clipped persona and Aston Martin (only the girl is missing).
The first line of the Ian Fleming "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" James Bond novel: "It was one of those Septembers when it seemed that the summer would never end." The last line: "The young patrolman took a last scared look at the motionless couple, hurried over to his motor cycle, picked up the hand-microphone, and began talking urgently to the rescue headquarters".
The Royal World Premiere of On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) was held on Thursday 18 December 1969 at the Odeon Theatre, Leicester Square, London in the presence of the Duke of Kent (Edward Windsor) and the Duchess of Kent. George Lazenby attended the event sporting a beard.

This was originally going to be the fourth Bond film. However, Thunderball (1965) was filmed instead after the ongoing rights dispute over the novel were settled between Ian Fleming and Kevin McClory. It was due to follow that, but problems with a warm Swiss winter and inadequate snow cover led to the producers postponing the film again, favouring production of You Only Live Twice (1967).

Largely a result of Bond's being recast, the first movie in the series to make extensive use of in jokes and tongue in cheek humor. The film also depicted scenes where Bond encountered and worked with a "Harem" of women. All of these would become trademarks of most of Roger Moore's Bond films.
Actors considered for the part of Tracy Draco included Brigitte Bardot, Jacqueline Bisset, and Catherine Deneuve. Reportedly, Bardot was the first choice of director Peter R. Hunt but she ironically decided to star opposite the former James Bond Sean Connery in Shalako (1968). Diana Rigg was finally chosen partly because of her appearance as Emma Peel in British TV's spy series The Avengers (1961).
Most close-ups of principal actors skiing were actually filmed back at Pinewood Studios as back-projection process shots. The principal actors were not allowed to ski in the movie due to insurance regulations.

Greek actor Takis Emmanuel, hired to play Draco's henchman Klett, refused to rehearse for the beach fight in the opening sequence, and so he was fired and replaced by stunt man Bill Morgan, a high fall and trampoline expert. Because the wedding scenes were filmed before the beach scenes, Emmanuel can be seen a few times in the film -- meaning both men technically played the same character in the same film, an unintentional first considering no plot points revolve around it.

Peter R. Hunt was allowed to direct because the producers were impressed with his editing style and as the result of a long-standing promise from Broccoli and Saltzman for a directorial position. Hunt also asked for the position during the production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), and he brought along with him many crew members, including cinematographer Michael Reed. Hunt was focused on putting his mark - "I wanted it to be different than any other Bond film would be. It was my film, not anyone else's."

Ian Fleming wrote the James Bond novel "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" while Dr. No (1962) was being filmed. Fleming included a mention by name of Ursula Andress in the book. The title was shared by a rare British nautical novel of the 19th Century which was discovered by Fleming's friend Sir John Nicholas Henderson (aka Nicko Henderson) at a Portbello Road book stall in London. In the book's sequel You Only Live Twice (1967), Fleming named the character Dikko Henderson after Nicko Henderson.

The first Bond film in which 007 used skis. As this is a 1960s Bond movie, it is interesting to note that the first and big 60s Bond star Sean Connery never did a skiing or snow sequence Bond movie, his James Bond only ever drives through snow-capped mountains in Goldfinger (1964).

The title lent itself to a role-playing board game "James Bond 007: Role-Playing In Her Majesty's Secret Service" in 1983 and was produced up until 1987. It was released by Avalon Books' Victory Games and was designed by Gerard Christopher Klug. The cover art picture of James Bond was not based on George Lazenby but was an amalgam of the likeness of both Sean Connery and Roger Moore and most closely resembled the poster for The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). The last three digits of its game book rules' ISBN were 007.

There was originally a foot-chase in the film. Bond was to spy one of Blofeld's henchmen spying on his meeting with Sir Hilary Bray and purse him across the rooftops of London, eventually catching up to him and beating him to death. Due to time constraints and delays, it was never filmed.

According to Robbie Collin in UK newspaper 'The Telegraph', "Bond author Ian Fleming invented SPECTRE in 1959 to replace James Bond's usual, Soviet, enemies. Fleming believed the Cold War might be about to end and wanted to keep his spy thrillers relevant". Fleming's SPECTRE Executive Cabinet included "21 people including former Gestapo members, Soviet spy group SMERSH, Josep Tito [Josip Broz Tito]'s secret police, Italian, Corsican and Turkish organised crime gangs", its goals were "profiteering from conflict between the superpowers, eventual world domination", and its methods included "counter-intelligence, brainwashing, murder, extortion using weapons of mass destruction (nuclear, biological and orbital)".

Although a continental European in the books and movies, "Blofeld" is actually an English family name, being an Anglicization of the Dutch name Blauvelt, or "blue field," which is also the meaning of Bleuchamps, the original family name in the movie. The original family name in the book, "Bleuville," means "blue town."

The avalanche scenes were due to be filmed in co-operation with the Swiss army who annually used explosions to prevent snow build-up by causing avalanches, but the area chosen naturally avalanched just before filming. The final result was a combination of a man-made avalanche at an isolated Swiss location shot by the second unit, stock footage, and images created by the special effects crew with salt. The stuntmen were filmed later, added by optical effects.

George Baker that Ian Fleming had put him forward as his choice to play James Bond when he was trying to drum up interest for a film series, before Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli got involved. In that light, Baker noted it gave him an odd feeling to be in the studio dubbing George Lazenby's dialogue for when Bond was impersonating Bray.

George Lazenby shared one anecdote - "One time, we were on location at an ice rink and Diana and Peter were drinking champagne inside. Of course I wasn't invited as Peter was there. I could see them through the window, but the crew were all outside stomping around on the ice trying to keep warm. So, when she got in the car, I went for her. She couldn't drive the car properly and I got in to her about her drinking and things like that. Then she jumped out and started shouting 'he's attacking me in the car!' I called her a so-and-so for not considering the crew who were freezing their butts off outside. And it wasn't that at all in the end, as she was sick that night, and I was at fault for getting in to her about it. I think everyone gets upset at one time."

The downhill skiing involved professional skiers, and various camera tricks. Some cameras were handheld, with the operators holding them as they were going downhill with the stuntmen, and others were aerial, with cameramen Johnny Jordan - who had previously worked in the helicopter battle of You Only Live Twice (1967) - developing a system where he was dangled by an 18 feet (5.5 m) long parachute harness rig below a helicopter, allowing scenes to be shot on the move from any angle.

According to the book 'James Bond: A Celebration' (1987) by Peter Haining, who passed away in 2007, "Jules Verne's Captain Nemo was the inspiration for [Ian] Fleming's Ernst Stavro Blofeld". The book states that the character " . . . has his origins in Caprtain Nemo, the hate-fuelled rebel of Jules Verne's classic novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea [1870]". Blofeld was originally intended to be the villain in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977).

With Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015), Ralph Fiennes became the 007th [= seventh] major actor or actress who has appeared in both the 'James Bond' and 'The Avengers' universes, the latter being the English spy one and not the comic super-heroes one. From the original television series The Avengers (1961), three actors appeared in Bond movies: Honor Blackman played Pussy Galore in Goldfinger (1964), Patrick Macnee portrayed Sir Godfrey Tibbett in A View to a Kill (1985), and Diana Rigg played Tracy Di Vicenzo in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). The latter film also featured as The English Girl actress Joanna Lumley who would later appear in The New Avengers (1976) which also starred Macnee. Whilst Nadim Sawalha appeared in both The Avengers (1998) cinema film as well as two Bond movies: The Living Daylights (1987) and The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). Fiennes actually appeared in The Avengers (1998) cinema movie co-starring with former James Bond Sean Connery who played the villain Sir August de Wynter. Of these seven actors, both Fiennes and Macnee have portrayed The Avengers' character of John Steed, in the theatrical film and television series respectively, with the latter also voicing the Invisible Jones character in The Avengers (1998) cinema movie. In this 1998 cinema film, John Steed (Ralph Fiennes) and Emma Peel (Uma Thurman) get across the frozen river by 'walking' on the surface inside inflatable plastic bubbles which is similar to how James Bond gets aboard Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Charles Gray)'s oil rig in Connery's final official series Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever (1971).

During the theatrical season of the later James Bond Film Spectre (2015) a special event was organized entitled "The Black Women of Bond".

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

In the original take of the final scene featuring Tracy's death, George Lazenby came to tears. Director Peter R. Hunt then made them shoot the scene again because he said that, "Bond does not cry." There were only two takes shot. However, George Lazenby convinced Hunt to use the first take saying that considering the circumstances (his wife being killed) they should let this be the one exception. Accordingly, this became the first (and until the release of "Skyfall" in 2012 the only) time in which Bond is seen openly crying.
The only James Bond movie in which both the main villain (Ernst Stavro Blofeld) and his sidekick (henchwoman Irma Bunt) survive and are not captured, arrested or killed.
Ilse Steppat's only ever English language role was as Irma Bunt in this movie. She was not able to enjoy her new success. She died of a heart attack less than a week after the release of this film. The character of Irma Bunt was intended for a time to return in the next James Bond movie, Diamonds Are Forever (1971). But because of her passing, the character did not return.
Bond and Tracy's wedding day took 5 days to shoot.

The novel On Her Majesty's Secret Service is the middle book in the trilogy of Bond novels featuring Blofeld and SPECTRE. The final novel in the trilogy, You Only Live Twice, features Bond tracking down Blofeld to avenge Tracy's death. However, You Only Live Twice was filmed first, albeit with a drastically different plot. Bond's vengeance on Blofeld was incorporated into the next film, Dismonds Are Forever, which also strayed radically from the novel.

The Ernst Stavro Blofeld villain character returns to the official film franchise in Spectre (2015) but since Blofeld last appeared in the official series films Diamonds Are Forever (1971) and informally in For Your Eyes Only (1981) and the unofficial entry Never Say Never Again (1983), Blofeld has actually appeared in three James Bond video-games. The Wikipedia website states: "Blofeld appears in the 2004 video game GoldenEye: Rogue Agent [GoldenEye: Rogue Agent (2004)], this time with the likeness of Donald Pleasence [from You Only Live Twice (1967)], voiced by Gideon Emery. Blofeld is a playable multiplayer character in the 2010 video game GoldenEye 007 [GoldenEye 007 (2010)] for the Wii, with the likeness of Charles Gray [from Diamonds Are Forever (1971)]. Blofeld is one of the main characters in the 2012 video game 007 Legends [007 Legends (2012)], featured in the mission based on On Her Majesty's Secret Service [See On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)], in which the character was an amalgamation of the three actors [who had] appeared in the official film series [they being Telly Savalas, Charles Gray, & Donald Pleasence]. Throughout the game, he is voiced by Glenn Wrage."

Spectre (2015) is the second of two major appearances of the Ernst Stavro Blofeld character in the official James Bond film franchise where Blofeld is seen with hair, as he had been in Diamonds Are Forever (1971) where he was played by Charles Gray. In both You Only Live Twice (1967) and On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), Blofeld was bald, being portrayed by Donald Pleasence and Telly Savalas respectively. In minor roles and appearances, Blofeld was bald in the unofficial appearance in For Your Eyes Only (1981), but had hair in Thunderball (1965) , From Russia with Love (1963), and the unofficial film, Never Say Never Again (1983).
