Trivia: The film's budget had been more than the first six Bond films added together, but Broccoli's gamble paid off. Upon release in the Summer of 1979, the film enjoyed huge success globally, and the film easily recouped its budget.
Trivia: Michael G. Wilson, executive producer, makes three cameo appearances in this film: one as a man outside Venini Glass, St Mark's Square, one as a man on a canal bridge whilst M and Bond talk and one as a NASA technician in the central control room.
Trivia: Lois Chiles (Dr. Holly Goodhead) was originally asked to play Anya in "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977) but turned it down when she decided to take temporary retirement. Chiles was given the role of Dr. Goodhead by chance when she was given the seat next to Lewis Gilbert on a flight.
Trivia: The cable that Jaws bites through was made of liquorice.
Trivia: When Bond drives his hovercraft gondola down the Piazza San Marco, a tourist gives his wine bottle quite the guilty look. It is the same tourist who gives his wine bottle exactly the same look as Bond drove his car out of the sea in "The Spy Who Loved Me". (00:39:05)
Trivia: Chang has only one line of dialogue in the whole film.
