    Know for doing his own stunts, it's even more remarkable for Daniel Craig, as he only
    Has one leg, a fear of tight fitted suits and suffers from tourettes. Meaning many scenes
    Have to be re-shot ( because of the swearing) and lots of CGI to make his baggy suits look
    Tight and of course to add the leg. ;)

    No Macdonald's restaurant has ever appeared in a Bond film. ;)

    Daniel Craig's peroxide blonde hair in "Logan Lucky" is actually his real hair colour. The colour he sported in the Bond films was a hair dye which Craig used so that he would be less readily recognised when sitting in his local pub.

    The recent spate of scary clowns, can be traced back to Octopussy when
    Bond dressed as a clown.

    There have been as many as four Bond films
    If all the rolls of film, used to capture the Bond movies
    Was laid out it would stretch a very long way.
    Almost two cars have been seen in a Bond film.
    Most actors in the Bond films have been men ...... Or women.
    All location sequences have been filmed on location, with the
    Series racking up almost fourteen miles on their travels.

    The special effects budget on DAF was limited not by Connery's fee, but the cost of making and maintaining his toupees.
    When Connery's toupees went missing on the set, William Shatner helped out by providing a stand in toupee from his own collection.
    Jonathan Pryce originally auditioned for the role of Wai Lin. Despite losing the role, he was still allowed to show of his martial arts training in the film.
    When Moore was briefly considered to return for TLD, the Aston Martin was scripted as a gadget filled mobility scooter.
    Looking for ideas to reboot the series after DAD, one suggestion was a low budget, more grounded movie. It would have seen Bond, played by Danny Dyer, head to the romantic city of Slough, where he would meet an unemployed single mother, Kayleigh. The two would end up in Crewe, battling a madman who plans on bringing England down to its knees by destroying all factories making track suits.

    All sharks used in the Bond films have been played by only two actors, a father and
    Son duo. From an old theatrical family the McTeeths. Starting out playing pantomime
    Horses etc but with their great talent, quickly moving to the movies.
    So life like are their combined movements in the water, many have been fooled in to
    Thinking they were watching real sharks ! Occasionally having to fall back on their old
    Theatrical ways when asked to play a horse pulling a sled as in OHMSS and FYEO.
    After retirement, the next generation took over although sadly due to an argument over
    A shark's back story, it has been many a year since we've seen a shark in a Bond film. :#

    Prior to 1974 only chocolate bras were allowed to be worn. In DAF, after removing it moments earlier, you can see a dark brown smudge in Connery's chest hair.
    Relax darling, I'm on top of the situation -{

    The gap between Bond films has now extended to four years, as they will now only be released
    In leap years.

    a reasonable rate of return

    Unlike Sean Connery, who never kept his James Bond rugs.

    This is in fact a misconception, Connery was mainly hair. It was the Body that had to be changed
    for every film. Hence why , with the reduced budget they couldn't get a very good one for DAF. ;)

    Oh, I see. I thought United Artists insisted on more Connery after OHMSS so Eon ordered a larger model.

    They had to dig it up from the ground after they dismantled it after the Japanese conversion in 67.
    He could speak Japanese with a Scottish accent.
    That had replaced his ability to act properly.
    a reasonable rate of return

    Jar Jar Binks is to be a surprise cameo in Bond 25. Built around another personal revenge story.
    with the young boy Bond pushed off his boat in Golden Gun. Now all grown up and out for
    revenge against the British agent who soaked him.
    Both Bond and the Boy are trapped, on a life boat for months with an unusual bond of trust
    building between them.

    The real reason why Dalton didn’t star after LTK was due to him actually crippling Benicio Del Toro by accidentally pulling him into the operating grinder. Benicio lost both of his legs below the knee and was paid the entire budget set aside for Property Of A Lady and The Hildebrant Rarity to keep silent while the MGM lawsuit was an inside job to blacklist Dalton.

    Ralph Ramsbottom was a Traffic cop and amateur actor, who was a dab hand with
    his radar gun. So when he became an actor he used his old Police nickname.........
    ....... Ralph Fiennes

    So is this going to be finally the novel accurate movie Moonraker? Bond and McCale crawl in the tubes at rocket station: "Come to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs..." says McClane disgruntled....

    Bruce Willis almost signed on to play a significant role in Bond 25, but negotiations broke down when he insisted the film be called No Time to Die Hard.

    George Lazenby was, in fact, a stand-in on the set of OHMSS and only accidentally became the star due to an unfortunate, ooh-err, editing mix-up:

    Some accurate facts:

    Moonraker is, as far as I can tell, the only Bond film where Bond does not fire his pistol.

    Moonraker is also the only Bond film in which no road vehicle chase of any kind takes place.

    Octopussy is the film where Bond uses the most disguises on a mission, 7 to be exact: the moustachioed army officer, a bodybag, a furniture salesman, a circus worker, Mischka, a gorilla suit and a clown suit.

    Koskov in TLD is the only main Bond villain other than Blofeld to survive events unscathed at the end of the film.

    LTK is the last Bond film to have product placement sponsored by the tobacco industry.

    Great list, SoD!

    A question though: can TWINE really be said to have a road vehicle chase as such?

    And Octopussy- let's not forget this great disguise!

    The crocodile boat certainly counts!

    I think TWINE does have a road chase since the BMW Z8 is briefly 'chased' by the buzzsaw-equipped helicopter. I'm including films where the chase is merely someone being 'tailed', like Whisper following Bond's taxi in LALD and Red Grant following Bond's car through Istanbul in FRWL. All the other films have car or other road chases.
