This is the fifth EON Productions James Bond movie not to mention the film's name in a song during the opening title sequence. The others were Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963), On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), and Octopussy (1983) ("All Time High"). Note that the lyrics "From Russia With Love" are not heard during the opening titles of that movie, as the instrumental, not vocal version, of the song is heard. See more »

Several of the largest of these were open on 9/12, including the London Stock Exchange, which would, presumably, be the one M was talking about. See more »
