This movie's retitling from 'Wrong Is Right' to 'The Man With The Deadly Lens', in English speaking territories, was to connect this movie with the James Bond franchise. The new title connected most obviously with The Man with the Golden Gun (1974). Although, Connery did not star as James Bond in that movie, Roger Moore did. See more »
