Licence to Kill

Trivia: Regardless of the fact that there is a tube down Timothy Dalton's arm to make the flame bigger, it still took Timothy (James Bond), David (Felix Leiter) and Priscilla (Della Leiter) by surprise. The reactions are the real ones of the actors. (00:15:10)

Trivia: Michael Kamen replaced regular composer John Barry for this movie as Barry was undergoing throat surgery.

Trivia: Timothy Dalton was injured during filming when James Bond was hanging by a hook over the cocaine grinder and Dario was cutting him loose. Benicio del Toro actually cut Dalton's hand and filming had to be stopped so he could be stitched up.

Continuity mistake: In the scene on the plane you see Bond hanging at the door on the right side of the plane, in the next shot you see the plane making a left turn, in the following shot Bond is still hanging on the right-side door. Shouldn't he have fallen into the plane ?

Franz Sanchez: Señor Bond, you got big cojones. You come here, to my place, without references, carrying a piece, throwing around a lot of money... but you should know something: nobody saw you come in, so nobody has to see you go out.

Question: Why didn't Timothy Dalton make any more Bond movies after this one?

Answer: Dalton was still contracted to play Bond in the next Bond film, Goldeneye. However, due to legal battles between MGM and EON productions, the film was delayed so long that Dalton simply lost interest and quit his role. He said afterwards in 2007 that, "I was supposed to make one more but it was cancelled because MGM and the film's producers got into a lawsuit which lasted for five years. After that, I didn't want to do it any more."
