Trivia

Andy Bradford (Agent 009) was also one of the Greek henchman in For Your Eyes Only (1981). Albert Moses (Sadruddin, Head of Station I in Udaipur) was also a bartender in Max Kalba's bar in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). See more »

Goofs

The sheep's eye that was eaten was clearly a small egg, probably a quail's egg, hard boiled and painted with the eyeball graphics. When he bites into it, there is no snappy crunch or popping sound you would hear if you bit into a real eyeball (cooked or uncooked), and the inside of it is clearly an egg, with cooked white on the outside and cooked yellow yolk on the inside.

Quotes

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.

Best of Roger Moore's 007's
3 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I have a spot for this film. The photography on location in India & Eastern Europe is top notch. The women in this film are to me the most beautiful ones of the Bond series. Not only is Maud Adams just wonderful, but Kristina Wayborn looks great too. The action sequences in this one are among the best of the series & the humor is great. Louis Jourdan is a great bad guy & the film based upon 2 of Ian Flemings short stories put together by George MacDonald Fraser works well. This film has a pace to it, & you just can enjoy the ride when you watch it. The opening sequence has nothing to do with the rest of the film.

I often still imagine Kristina Wayborn as my girl instead of a Bond girl. The brunette in the opening sequence is a looker too. What I love about the opening is that it sets the tone for the rest of the movie. While the stunts look awesome, this film is played for a lot of laughs along with the action. It succeeds on both counts, & truly is the "Property of a Lady" with so many good looking Bond Women.

Rita Coolidge had her all time best song with the theme song for this film which seems to have been written for her voice. It's an all time high from Louis Jourdan (Kamal) to Bond in a gator tuxedo!
