The Entertainment Weekly cover shown in the film featuring George Lazenby
as James Bond is fictitious. Entertainment Weekly wasn't published until 1990. The cover was a series of special covers Entertainment Weekly released in 2006 to coincide with the then upcoming release of Casino Royale
(2006). EW depicted each actor as Bond on an EW cover had they been around long enough to cover all the Bonds. See more
When George first enters the car dealership in London, a US flag flying on a pole is reflected in the door glass (and the door is noticeably American in design). Later, from inside the dealership, three US flags can be seen flying on poles outside. See more
Himself - James Bond
It's very hard for people to understand, but living life on your own terms, in your own way, you feel like it's much fuller. The best thing you can do is know yourself, and feel yourself, and be yourself. Yeah, I may not be great, but I'm an original.
