The Spy Who Loved Me

Revealing mistake: The shot of the two nuclear missiles being launched is used twice, just reversed. They seem to have changed the saturation slightly in one of them to make it look different, but there are identical clouds at the top left/top right in both shots, ruining the trick.

Continuity mistake: On the train, the wine stain on Jaws' jacket disappears for one shot and then reappears. It then changes size and shape repeatedly.

Continuity mistake: When 007 pushes Jaws outside the train, he breaks the window, but it is intact in the following shot. It's broken again a little bit later.

Trivia: During filming, the Lotus Esprit submarine car was nicknamed "Wet Nellie" by the crew, a reference to "Little Nellie", Bond's gyrocopter in "You Only Live Twice".

Trivia: This applies to Moonraker too - Jaws' "teeth" were so painful that actor Richard Kiel could only keep them in for a few seconds at a time, which is why you don't get too many long shots with them visible. He only wore them when he needed to open his mouth.

Trivia: At the end of the credits it says, "James Bond Will Return In: For Your Eyes Only." But after the film came "Moonraker" and then FYEO. After the producers saw the success of "Star Wars" (1977), they decided to make a space-themed Bond movie.

Question: How does the Liparus explode and sink at the end? After the nuclear subs have been destroyed, the ship just starts blowing up for no apparent reason. Was there any explanation for it?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: When the nuclear subs have been destroyed, there's an explosion in the control room, and one of the men cries out "Fuel tank!" Liparus has numerous internal fires raging after the battle with her crew. These uncontrolled fires eventually spread to her fuel tanks and ammo storages, one of which explodes in a huge fireball and finally causes Liparus to sink.

Question: Has there ever been a backstory written for Jaws? I would love to know where he came from, and how he came to be, so I was wondering if there has ever been one written, and where I can find it.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Yes, there was a backstory for the character of Jaws in Christopher Wood's novelisation of the film "James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me", not to be confused with the Ian Fleming novel.
