Ralph Ramsbottom was a Traffic cop and amateur actor, who was a dab hand with
his radar gun. So when he became an actor he used his old Police nickname.........

So is this going to be finally the novel accurate movie Moonraker? Bond and McCale crawl in the tubes at rocket station: "Come to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs..." says McClane disgruntled....

Bruce Willis almost signed on to play a significant role in Bond 25, but negotiations broke down when he insisted the film be called No Time to Die Hard.

George Lazenby was, in fact, a stand-in on the set of OHMSS and only accidentally became the star due to an unfortunate, ooh-err, editing mix-up:

Re: Facts on Bond ( Might not be true )

Some accurate facts:

Moonraker is, as far as I can tell, the only Bond film where Bond does not fire his pistol.

Moonraker is also the only Bond film in which no road vehicle chase of any kind takes place.

Octopussy is the film where Bond uses the most disguises on a mission, 7 to be exact: the moustachioed army officer, a bodybag, a furniture salesman, a circus worker, Mischka, a gorilla suit and a clown suit.

Koskov in TLD is the only main Bond villain other than Blofeld to survive events unscathed at the end of the film.

LTK is the last Bond film to have product placement sponsored by the tobacco industry.

Re: Facts on Bond ( Might not be true )

Great list, SoD!

A question though: can TWINE really be said to have a road vehicle chase as such?

And Octopussy- let's not forget this great disguise!

The crocodile boat certainly counts!

I think TWINE does have a road chase since the BMW Z8 is briefly 'chased' by the buzzsaw-equipped helicopter. I'm including films where the chase is merely someone being 'tailed', like Whisper following Bond's taxi in LALD and Red Grant following Bond's car through Istanbul in FRWL. All the other films have car or other road chases.
