Trivia: Harold Sakata (Oddjob) was formerly a professional weightlifter and won a silver medal for the United States at the 1948 Olympics in London.
Trivia: All of the guards at the clinic on the mountain have the Olympic rings on their orange track suit tops.
Trivia: The disclaimer, "Neither the name Zorin nor any other name or character in this film is meant to portray a real company or actual person" was added after the producers discovered a real company known as Zoran Ladicorbic Ltd, whose industry was fashion design. This is the first Bond film to begin with a disclaimer.
Trivia: When Bond first meets Tiffany Case in her apartment she is playing some music. If you listen carefully you will notice that it is the theme song for the film.
Trivia: When Bond is playing baccarat with Xenia, his last hand, and only winning hand against her, is two face cards (a king and a queen if I remember correctly) and a six. In baccarat, face cards and tens are worth 0 and cards under ten are worth their number. So, his cards are, in order, 0-0-6, the code number of his lost friend, Alec Trevelyan (006).
Trivia: In the opening sequence with the speed boat jetting through the boat house and over the road was filmed in Wapping, East London. It took a week to film that one sequence as I saw them doing it. Also, for the matter of continuity, when the boat goes across the road, it goes into some sort of alley with an arch above it; in reality it's actually a Group 4 building on the other side of that road.
Trivia: The actor intended to play Captain Nash, whose place Grant takes at the Zagreb train station, didn't actually show up for filming. Location manager Bill Hill performed the role instead.
Trivia: Because Dr No's lair is underwater, you can see fish swimming through the windows. However, an error was made when using footage of fish so they look larger than they should. In order to get around this, they added in dialogue where Dr No explains how the window works like a magnifying glass.
Trivia: For production Designer Ken Adam's giant Pinewood volcano set, some 700 tons of steel were used and some 250,000 square yards of canvas. It featured a working monorail and elevators and cost $1 million to produce.
Trivia: After Bond returns to London (when he's completed his mission in Eastern Europe) there's an 'establishing' shot of a London street scene. Look closely at the placards behind the newspaper vendor. One of the placards says "BLAZING JEEP AT 2,000 FEET" - a reference to the Jeep on fire and going over a cliff in the pre-title sequence perhaps?
