For Your Eyes Only

Corrected entry: In the scene where 'Q' leads Bond from the laboratory into the room containing the identograph, there are several Q-branch staff visible in the background. A moment later, however, when a secretary enters with tea, all the staff have gone home and the lights have been extinguished.

Correction: That's because some time passes between the two takes. Note how much further the work on the iconograph has come.


Corrected entry: When Bond and company attack Kristato's warehouse, it is in the middle of the night, however as Bond runs up the stairs to chase the escaping bad guy, he reaches the top in broad daylight.

Correction: The attack takes place near dawn. You'll notice it getting lighter as the action goes on.

Trivia: Because of Carole Bouquet's sinus problems, the close-up underwater shots of Bond and Melina were shot in an entirely dry studio and not underwater. They were shot at a higher frame rate with wind machines. Derek Meddings, the special effects man, added the bubbles in afterwards.

Question: Why does Bond go to Bibi to try and get information about Eric Kriegler? Couldn't he have simply contacted his own department to get a background check on him. After all, it's not like she would have had anything very informative (considering that she had previously stated that he never talks to girls).

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Whether he talked to her or not, Bibi would have inside information simply by being around him so much. She would have overheard things that a background check wouldn't reveal, like planned criminal activity.
