The title song of Never Say Never Again (1983) is sung by Lani Hall is also the name of a song recorded previously by The Bee Gees and heard on their 1969 double LP album, "Odessa". In 2008, an original song recorded but never used for the film was revealed to the public. Stephen Forsyth and Jim Ryan wrote the song which was also called "Never Say Never Again". It was sung by Phyllis Hyman and Warner Brothers intended it to be the film's title song during the making of the movie. The film's composer Michel Legrand allegedly maintained that he had contractual rights over the title song and considered suing. Consequently, the Ryan-Forsyth track reportedly had to be jettisoned by the studio just before the release of the movie due to legal reasons. The song was never released until 2008, when for the first time, the song was made available to the public - released on an album and made accessible via the internet. See more »
When Bond is making love to Fatima Blush below deck, her hair is inconsistent - in the first and last shot her hair is straight, but in the middle shot her hair is curly. See more »
Now write this: "The greatest rapture of my life was afforded me on a boat in Nassau by Fatima Blush," and sign it "James Bond, 007."
I just remembered. It's against Service policy to give endorsements.

Never say Never Again is just a remake of Thunderball but updated to the 80's. Sean Connery is back in action as James Bond sure Bond is a little older and his skills have slipped a little,Too many women and too many martinis and a poor choice of lifestyle have slowed him up. But when the chips are down and the world needs him James Bond comes thru perfectly every time. Never Say Never Again is not a perfect film there are flaws but you take the good with the bad and you enjoy it. Max Von Sydow is Blofeld he makes the villain menacing you can believe that blofeld is as evil and merciless as they come. But this is Connery's show and he's back as James Bond every thing else is just details.
