Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Bond first arrives at the ninja training camp, some of of the ninjas are sword fighting. It is assumed that they are sparring (with no real contact) because the ninja in blue obviously misses several of the others very badly with the sword, but they faint as if hit. However, two of the ninjas scream loudly in pain when they are "slashed" which makes it unclear whether they are sparring or using real contact.
  • The literal translations of some of this film's foreign language titles include One Doesn't Live More Than Twice (France); It Only Lives Twice (Latin America); 007 Dies Twice (Japan); One Only Lives Twice / A Man Doesn't Live More Than Twice (Germany); James Bond In Japan (Norway & Greece); You Live Only Twice (Finland); With 007 You Only Live Twice (Brazil & Portugal) and 007 Seized The Rocket Base (China).
  • The first line of the Ian Fleming James Bond novel "You Only Live Twice" read: "The geisha called 'Trembling Leaf', on her knees beside James Bond, leant forward from the waist and kissed chastely on the right cheek." The last lines of the Ian Fleming James Bond novel "You Only Live Twice" read: "But then of course, he didn't know that his name was James Bond. And, compared with the blazing significance to him of that single Russian word on the scrap of paper, his life on Kuro, his love for Kissy Suzuki, were, in Tiger's phrase, as of little account as sparrow's tears."
  • According to numerous call sheets, a total of 98 stunt men were used in the volcano scenes.
