The Spy Who Loved Me

Trivia: Robert Brown (Admiral Hargreaves) would later replace Bernard Lee in the role of "M" from "Octopussy" to "Licence to Kill".

Trivia: Actor Jeremy Bulloch seen at the start playing chess and later killed in the battle on the oil tanker also appeared in several Bond films after as Smithers, one of Q's technicians. He also played Boba Fett in the original Star Wars movies.

Trivia: Whatever other qualities movie props have, durability and quality is not among them. If you look closely as Triple X jumps into Bonds arms inside the escape capsule, you can see that the dye of her costume wasn't exactly washer-dryer-proof.

Trivia: When Q delivers the Lotus to Bond and Anya, Anya greets him with "Good morning, Major Boothroyd." This is the only time in the films that Q's name is given. (His name in the novels is Major Geoffrey Boothroyd.).
