Trivia: It was well documented that the deal put before Sean Connery to tempt him back into the role of Bond was more than generous, a reputed $1 million. So generous a fee was it, that at that time it was listed in the Guinness Book of Records. He donated the entire amount to his charity, the Scottish Education Trust. In addition, United Artists agreed to fund the production of two movies of Connery's choice.

Mistakes

The famous car chase ends with Bond's car tipping up on its right wheels to fit through a pedestrian path. However, when it emerges the other side, it's tipped on its left wheels. [When the car enters the alley this was filmed in a studio. When the car exits the alley this was filmed in Vegas. The first few times the exit was filmed the car emerged on the correct wheels but the shots were unusable because of the crowds in the background watching the filming. This shot was temporarily abandoned and eventually re-filmed with a different stunt driver who famously performed the stunt on the wrong wheels. Realising this, the producers filmed an insert shot featuring a close-up of Sean Connery and Jill St John which shows the car tip back onto four wheels and then up onto the opposite two wheels (even though the alleyway would be too narrow to manage this!), which is in the finished film].
