Did You Know?

Trivia 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, Public Relations Manager of Lotus, realized 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 clamoring 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 Producer Albert R. Broccoli (Cubby Broccoli) later chose it for the film. See more »
Goofs It's obviously a joke, but... as Bond drives the Wet Nellie out of the sea, he hands a fish to a person on the beach. If there was a hole large enough to allow a fish to enter the car/submarine, they would surely have drowned, or at least got very wet (although a leak did occur in the roof of the car just before it emerged from the water).

Crazy Credits "THE END of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME JAMES BOND will return in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" - though in fact the next film in the series was switched to Moonraker in light of the success of sci-fi movie Star Wars. Thus Moonraker went unannounced and For Your Eyes Only was promised twice. For the other incidence in the series of the next film being announced in error, see Octopussy. See more »
