  • During the filming of the final scene, the Moroccan airfield (doubling as Afghanistan) was left open to civilian flights.

  • Maryam d'Abo got the part due to an audition she did with Pierce Brosnan.

  • The movie was originally written for Roger Moore and had to be changed to reflect the new Bond.

  • The character of Pushkin was created when Walter Gotell (Gogol)was unavailable for filming. There was just enough time to put in a cameo appearance at the end the credits.

  • The credits list Gotell as General Anatol Gogol although in The Spy Who Loved Me his name was Alexis.

  • In the pre-title sequence, 002, and 004 may look familiar. One of them bore a resemblance to Roger Moore, the other to George Lazenby. The writers wanted to keep the audience guessing who the new 007 would be.
