Trivia: This is Sir Roger Moore's least favourite Bond movie of the seven in which he appeared. He thought the movie was too violent and that he was too old to play the role. Moore also said that he felt there was no chemistry between him and Tanya Roberts, and had a genuine dislike for Grace Jones.
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: The lines "What a view," and "To a kill," were once subtitled in Sweden as "What a view," and "Yeah, Tokyo."
Trivia: The San Francisco city council did not allow Zorin's death (falling from the Golden Gate) to be shot for fear that it might "inspire" suicides, so optical tricks had to be used.
Trivia: Mary Stavin, who plays Kimberley Jones in the pre-credits sequence, won the Miss World title in 1977. She had previously played one of Octopussy's girls in "Octopussy".
Trivia: Duran Duran's theme tune from the film became the first Bond film theme to top the U.S. Billboard charts.
Trivia: As already mentioned, this is Lois Maxwell's last film as Miss Moneypenny. However, before she left, she approached the film makers to suggest she come back playing the role of M. The makers declined, saying they didn't think a woman could play M. Ten years later Judi Dench took over the role.
Trivia: Several crew members were nearly killed when the Iceberg sub from the pre-title sequence flipped over.
