Trivia

When Bond and his compatriots are looking at the tracing of the submarine's course, the first few notes of the James Bond theme are played when the line is drawn onto the map.


Quotes

HMS Ranger Navigator: Captain wants to keep 500 feet.
Young officer, HMS Ranger: Maneuvering, Control. Come in shallow to 500 feet.
Young officer, HMS Ranger: Keep 500 feet
HMS Ranger crewman: Keep 500 feet, sir.


Goofs

The Mark 46 Torpedo that the American Captain fires to escape the supertanker weighs over 500 lbs. and is filled with PBXN-103 high explosives, and has a minimum safety range of 1,500 yards, and no Navy commander would ever launch an active torpedo so close to his own ship, in this case to break open the supertanker doors to escape. Additionally, the Navy commander failed to issue a command to remove the safety features and set the safety range to zero, so as depicted in the movie with the safety still active, the torpedo would not have exploded. In reality, had the safety range been set to zero and the torpedo actually detonated the mere 100 feet or so as shown, the submarine that launched the torpedo would have been destroyed also.


Crazy Credits

"THE END of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME JAMES BOND will return in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" - though in fact the next film in the series was switched to Moonraker in light of the success of sci-fi movie Star Wars. Thus Moonraker went unannounced and For Your Eyes Only was promised twice. For the other incidence in the series of the next film being announced in error, see Octopussy.
