The Spy Who Loved Me

Continuity mistake: When Bond is waiting to meet Stromberg he notices the remains of the women killed at the beginning by the shark, but the tank with the shark in has nothing in it but water and the shark. The tank Bond is looking at has coral and other fish in it.

Continuity mistake: When Jaws gets up at the phone booth, he puts his hand near the handle to open the door. However, in a close up shot of Kalba, Jaws' hand is level with Kalba's face, nowhere near the handle, and in the next shot back near the handle.

Continuity mistake: The position of Stromberg's "Atlantis" changes during the film. One moment its far enough out to see it takes a speedboat to get to it, then its so close to land Bond can get to it and back with his Lotus, finally its back out far enough at sea when the American submarine destroys it.

Continuity mistake: A guy in the submarine sits down next to a couple of guys playing chess. The man behind is reading a magazine at eye level, which a frame later disappears.

Continuity mistake: A sailor on one of the submarines took the paper for the incoming telex with the new coordinates for the missile: code 0292765491. Then he reads the coordinates from this paper, but said something completely different: code 034285219.

Continuity mistake: When Bond's car comes out of the water, the number of people on the beach keeps changing all the time: A couple on the shore next to the car appears and disappears and the crowd on the right side increases and decreases randomly.

Trivia: At the end of the credits it says, "James Bond Will Return In: For Your Eyes Only." But after the film came "Moonraker" and then FYEO. After the producers saw the success of "Star Wars" (1977), they decided to make a space-themed Bond movie.

Question: Has there ever been a backstory written for Jaws? I would love to know where he came from, and how he came to be, so I was wondering if there has ever been one written, and where I can find it.
