Trivia: When Bond is playing baccarat with Xenia, his last hand, and only winning hand against her, is two face cards (a king and a queen if I remember correctly) and a six. In baccarat, face cards and tens are worth 0 and cards under ten are worth their number. So, his cards are, in order, 0-0-6, the code number of his lost friend, Alec Trevelyan (006).
Trivia: Perrier paid a fortune for their cans to be crashed through by the tank. After the filming Perrier representatives picked up every single can, crushed or intact, to prevent people getting hold of them and re-using them to sell "false" Perrier.
Trivia: "Alec Trvelyan" never died on screen in Germany. The last scene German audiences saw was when he plummets to the ground after falling from the antenna. The latter part of the scene, where the structure collapses onto him, was cut in its entirety.
Trivia: This was Pierce Brosnan's first appearance as James Bond. After Roger Moore announced his retirement from playing 007, Timothy Dalton was offered the role but was unavailable. Brosnan was then offered the role in "The Living Daylights" (1987) but lost out due to his contractual obligations to "Remington Steele".
Trivia: The novel Casino Royale, the first James Bond novel, was originally published on April 13, 1953. Pierce Brosnan was born on May 16, 1953, making him one month and three days younger than Bond the character. This Bond film marks the first time the character had existed longer than the actor playing him.Phixius
Trivia: At the beginning, Bond initially sets the bomb's timing device for six minutes. Read it backwards and you get 006 - as in Agent 006, Alec Trevelyan.
