. . . says stunt flier Corky Fornof, whose last name is spelled with two "F's" in the LICENSE TO KILL home sales materials, with the sort of overkill for which the Bond movie producers are famous. Mr. Fornof notes here that 40-pound dummies were used for many of the aerial Bond scenes in KILL, since the typical Bond weighs in at 160 pounds (think George Lazenby or KILL's Timothy Dalton), for a net air weight savings of about 120 pounds. Narrator Fornof further notes that the temperature during filming in Mexico nearly reached 123 degrees Fahrenheit (which explains why more people summer in British Columbia or Switzerland). He also discloses the role played by smoke grenades in some of KILL's aerial action scenes. It is a crying shame that the "extras" for OCTOPU$$Y did not include a "GROUND CHECK WITH CORKY FORNOF," as he was the pilot of the mini-jet used in the Pre-titles sequence set in a Cuba-like country, and it would have been nice to know how worried he was about the possibility of the chase missile catching up to him.
