Trivia: At the beginning of the film, Bond visits the grave of his wife. This is a two part reference to the 1969 Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". First, Mrs. Bond (play by Diana Rigg) was killed in that movie, and second, the inscription on the gravestone is "We Have All the Time in the World" - the theme song for "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", sung by Louis Armstrong.
Trivia: The location for the film's climax posed several problems for the crew. A Monastery, atop a column of rock near Kalambaka, in the Pindus mountain range, had been chosen for the villain's hideaway. Permission had originally been granted, but just before filming was due to commence, the monks staged a protest and refused filming. The locals were furious with this and the disagreement was eventually settled by the Greek Supreme Court - in the film-makers' favour. The mountain scenery did not suit Moore, and it quickly became apparent that he was afraid of heights. One of the film's major stunts - Bond's 100 foot from the mountain - was performed by Rick Sylvester, who had originally done the ski-jump off the mountain-top in the pre-credit sequence of "The Spy Who Loved Me". At only 5' 6", he was much shorter than Moore, for whom he was doubling .
Trivia: The producers, director John Glen and Sir Roger Moore all discussed whether Bond should kick the car with Locque inside, or whether he should just throw the dove lapel pin into the car, which would fall due to its weight. Eventually they decided it would be best for Bond to kick the car, although Moore was not happy about it, feeling it did not match his version of Bond.
