Wasn't there 2 more Palmer films made quite a bit later? After the first 3 I mean.

Yes, Bullet to Beijing and Midnight in St Petersburg.  I've only seen the latter, enjoyable in a tv movie sort of way.

Cover versions of the main theme abound. I like Roland Shaw’s cos it’s a completely different arrangement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-36JEMtaXhg

Many names in the credits familiar to Bond fans- Harry Saltzman, John Barry, Ken Adam, Peter Hunt…

An interesting technical aspect of this film is that it was shot using Techniscope - a cheaper widescreen process than the more common anamorphic systems favoured in most Hollywood films of the time - it uses less film, and had a deeper depth-of-field as I understand. It was also used famously by Sergio Leone in his spaghetti westerns. I've also heard that the viewfinder setup made it hard to see what the actual framing would be in the final shot, which may account for some of the wackier compositions in this film.
