Andress admits bewilderment: "It's a mystery. All I did was wear this bikini, not even a small one, Dont LIke Leavin - Dana McBride - Perfect Fit (Make Love Not War) (CD, and whoosh!
Overnight, I made it. A deleted scene featured Honey Ryder waiting in her room in the finale, armed with a bottle of booze.

The Professor was not named Dent, and was not a villain. There was no evil chauffeur and no Felix Leiter the latter was in other novels. A sequence extracted from the final cut had Dr.
No forcing Bond to radio Felix Leiter, telling him that he had discovered nothing of any interest on Crab Key, in return for a less painful death for both Bond and Ryder.

In the movie, as shown, water was the threat instead. For a long time, this film was tied with Goldfinger as the shortest James Bond movie in the EON Productions official series, with a running time of one hour and fifty minutes.
Quantum of Solace is now the shortest at one hour and forty-six minutes. Due to the low budget, only one sound editor was hired normally there are two, for sound effects and dialogue.

When first approached by producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzmanscreenwriters Wolf Mankowitz and Richard Maibaum discarded most of the source material and wrote a story treatment about a shipping magnate called Buchwald attempting to blow up the Panama Canal.
No was a monkey god worshipped on the island, and the villain kept a Capuchin monkey as a pet. Broccoli and Saltzman told them to try again and this time stick more closely to the source material.

In order to avoid any focus being pulled from Connery, Lord was replaced in Goldfinger and subsequently every future Leiter appearance with a shorter, more conventional looking American actor in order to keep Bond in the spotlight. Also, Lord wanted more money, a bigger part, and equal billing with Connery. After the release of this movie, Lord did the same thing Album) few years later with Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry after Jeffrey Hunter did not receive a callback to appear in the second pilot when the role of Captain James T.

A script developed by producer Kevin McCloryscreenwriter Jack Whittinghamand author Ian Flemingreportedly titled "James Bond, Secret Agent" was originally going to be the first James Bond movie, but Fleming caused legal problems before any production could begin by writing and publishing what he thought of as "the book to the movie" without consulting the others.
