Trivia: There have been some problems with the shooting of the rat scene in the Istanbul sewers. At first, white lab rats were considered. In order to make them brown, they were coated with chocolate powder; but the rats found the substance too delicious and spent their shots licking each other off. Finally, real rats were used, but they went amok in the studio. Sean Connery relieved the situation by simply opening the door.
