Did You Know?
Guest star Donald Sutherland
's character and Simon Templar were supposed to be escaping. Stunt coordinator Leslie Crawford
came up with the idea to grab the helicopter runner as they were taking off. Roger Moore
said in his autobiography that Sutherland threw himself into the role, and started kicking Crawford's fingers as the helicopter was taking off. Moore said, "Les was holding on for dear life and Donald started kicking harder as the helicopter rose higher. I was shouting, "Cut! Cut! Donald, cut!" See more
