Chang watches Bond leave the room in which Bond finds the safe. When Bond walks away from the room, we see Chang's rear profile standing up, in the next shot he's back crouching in the corner again.
THE END of "MOONRAKER" James Bond will return in "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY"
The end credits differ slightly between various prints. To tell some apart, for example, on the Blu-ray edition large Panavision and Dolby Stereo credits fade in on their own after the cast list (and the 5th row of names is too far to the right so Serge Douy becomes Serge Dou), whereas on older DVD, laserdisc, and VHS releases the crawl is more simplified with small Panavision and Dolby credits that move along with the rest (and enough room for Serge Douy's name). It is possible that the latter was recreated quickly to fix the name problem. Both versions have slightly different timing to the appearance of the different components (filming locations, crawl, The End and For Your Eyes Only teaser).
