Stupidity: Khan's backgammon games make no sense by conventional rules. He claims to have won the first game even though he has a counter on the bar. His opponent is well behind but since he hasn't borne off any pieces he should have continued to avoid losing a gammon and having to pay double stakes. In the second game Khan rolls a double six but he doesn't bear off before Bond takes his turn. (00:29:30)
M: Remember, 007, you're on your own.
James Bond: Well, thank you, sir. That's a great comfort.
Question: Was Kristina Wayborn's descent from the balcony (in which she tips herself backwards and slides down using her sari as a rope) really carried out as shown? I would have thought that she should plummet to the ground much faster - too fast to be sure of landing feet first - and risk a broken bone or more. Are we to assume that Bond girls have magical powers or that the sequence was slowed down for dramatic effect?
