By the time this film was made, the James Bond franchise was the most lucrative in the world, and many manufacturers wanted their products featured. There was great competition for the company that would supply Bond's car. Don McLaughlin, PR Manager of Lotus, realised that the best way to win this coveted position was to make the film's producers chase after him, rather than going begging to them. One day he turned up at Pinewood driving a brand new unreleased Lotus Esprit, with all identifying names covered up. He parked it outside the Bond set, knowing that the producers would see it when they broke for lunch. Once the car had attracted a crowd, all clamouring to know what the car was, McLaughlin nonchalantly got in the car and drove away without answering any questions. As he had expected, the producers were desperate to discover what the car was and Albert R. Broccoli (Cubby Broccoli) later chose it for the film. See more »
Bond honks the horn on the Wet Nellie before passing a truck on the cliff side road. Bond presses the center of the steering wheel when a Lotus horn is actually the lever on the left of the steering wheel. See more »
This is one of Roger Moore's best turns as James Bond. It has one of the best plots, the best villians, and one of the best Bond girls...Barbara Bach as agent XXX. Submarines are being somehow hijacked and it is up to Bond to find out by whom. Meanwhile, Agent XXX must find out who stole a Russian sub. They start out working against each other, but after awhile they pull their resources and work together. This Bond flick features a great ski chase, a battle on a train, car chase and good finale. Also, Richard Kiel, plays the henchman Jaws and does a pretty good job considering he has no lines.
