| Fun, Exotic And Stupid
While the action never ceases, which is great, and the locale is exotic, and Japan is always cool, many of the sequences seem there just to showcase Japan. How much of these films is sponsored by tourist bureaus I cannot know, but as a viewer one can enjoy the action and the intrigue by ignoring the unneeded sequences or rather treating them as amusement to watch. I always thought Roger Moore is the better Bond, but the Sean Connery ones are entertaining to watch too. You Only Live Twice is fun.

Trivia

Before the title sequence, there is an outdoor shot of a Russian radar station where U.S. and Soviet leaders are having a crisis meeting. This was filmed at Mågerø in the Oslo fjord in Norway to add a Nordic winter feel to the footage. The dome-shaped radar station is still in operation today, run by the Norwegian military.

Goofs

When the film cuts from Bond saying, "Bon apetit," to the two ships in outer space, there are no stars behind the ships. They then suddenly pop into the picture.

Alternate Versions

The 1992 MGM/UA UK VHS widescreen edition crops the gun barrel sequence and the opening shot of the space capsule into a 4:3 ratio within the widescreen picture. The cropping is removed when the scene cuts to the astronauts, thus showing the full widescreen image. A corresponding US widescreen edition (laserdisc at least) presents this as widescreen, but severely cropped into the top right corner, so that the gun barrel and capsule are at the bottom near the left, instead of centered.
