Bond Themes: - Live Intro, Silhouette Titles, Casino scene, M, Q & Moneypenny, Spectre, Cars (not Aston martins, Toyota 2000GTs instead), no Belly dancer, no Train scene and no Felix Leiter as well. Henchmen - Hans, played by Ronald Rich and someone who was just a getaway driver but turns out to be well hard, Peter Fanene Maivia from Samoa, also Miss Brandt played by Karin Dor (also a Bond Girl). Gadgets : Little Nellie
Bond Girls, there were 4 in this one, the first was in the Hong Kong intro, Ling (no. 16) played by Tsai Chin (Hong Kong), next was one of two main "Bond Girls" Aki (no.17) played by Japanese actor Akiki Wakabayashi, and very nice too, unfortunately she gets killed later. Then it was Miss Brandt (No.18), played by German actor Karin Dor (a very good actor), she was a baddie, and Bond tries to turn her, but it does not work, she tries to kill 007, making her a Henchwoman as well, but she gets it later, and lastly in this film Kissy (no. 19), the one he marries, and the best looking, she wouldn't have him at first but he nailed her at the end.
And about that marriage, Bond is supposed to have only been married once, in the next to Tracy (Diana Rigg) but he gets married here, it's said to be a fake marriage, but I don't see how, they went through the whole ceremony, the only thing that was fake was his name and his toupee, (I know its make-believe, I am just on about the characters and story), so for me Bond has been married twice and committed bigamy in OHMSS, unless they have annulled it. Oh and in one scene Henderson asks Bond if his Martini/Vodka is "Stirred not Shaken" and Bond agrees, so for true it does not matter how he takes it.
Anyway, it's another solid effort from Connery and the Bond Team, not the best but not far off, I would have given a 9 had they not dubbed most of the oriental's.
