Trivia

During casting, James Brolin was almost given the role of James Bond, when at the last minute, Sir Roger Moore agreed to play Bond again. Brolin's screentests can be seen on the DVD. Moore had gone out of contract after Moonraker (1979), and had agreed to return to the role one more time in For Your Eyes Only (1981). The production went with Moore, because this film would be competing with Never Say Never Again (1983), starring original and former James Bond actor, and legend, Sir Sean Connery. The uncertainty in using an American actor in the role, having to introduce a new actor, and going-up against Connery were the reasons. In the meantime, Oliver Tobias, Michael Billington, Timothy Dalton, and Ian Ogilvy had also been considered for James Bond. See more »

Goofs

There were F-111 aircraft shown at the fictional Feldstadt Air Force Base. During the time of the movie (or any other time) there were no F-111 fighter aircraft stationed in Germany. The nearest ones would have been in either Lakenheath or Upper Heyford, England. See more »

Quotes

James Bond: You didn't tell me there was going to be this much security.
Bianca: They moved the flight up to this afternoon.
James Bond: Well, we're going to have to go ahead as planned anyway.
[Bianca hands an ID badge with the name 'Luis Toro' to Bond]
James Bond: Toro. Sounds like a load of bull.

100% Bond!
15 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

"I'm sure the General will get a big blast out of this!" - "I know he wont be disappointed."

Excellent film that must be among the best in the series. It really feels like a genuine Bond movie. Like Broccoli & Co went all in. Top- notch action, mysterious women, eccentric villains and great locations. And Roger Moore was born to be a leading man. When Connery got worse for each film, Moore just got better. In Octopussy he is super- confident and handles both the drama and humor with ease.
