Linda McCartney (d. 1998) sang backing vocals on Live and Let Die (1973).
Wow. You've taken good care of your body. Such... a waste.
During the opening chase sequence when Bond jumps onto a raised scissor lift and hits the control box and hydraulic fluid sprays out and the lift drops when in actuality the control box is electrical controls and all the hydraulics are in the base and absolutely nothing would happen if you broke the box except you would be stuck at the top.
The opening MGM and Columbia logos are in black & white to coincide with the pre-title sequence.
