Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Two 2000GTs were remodeled to convertibles and featured in the James Bond movie You Only Live Twice. One is displayed at Toyota's headquarters while the other is in a private collection of a Toyota executive. (When the Encore movie channel aired James Bond films in early 2005, a 2000GT which was located in South Africa was in the process of a restoration as a replica convertible at Cars of the Stars Motor Museum, featuring actual control panel used in the film.)
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Bond and Aki are being chased by the black car, Aki changes lanes in traffic. However, she turns the steering wheel nearly a full rotation, which would have turned the car sharply to the right.
  • The female leads Mie Hama and Akiko Wakabayashi both appeared in Kingu Kongu tai Gojira (1962) (English title: King Kong vs. Godzilla), and Kokusai himitsu keisatsu: Kagi no kagi (1965) (English title: What's Up, Tiger Lily? (1966)). The latter was a James Bond movie imitation which attracted them to the producers of genuine James Bond movies. A flaw was soon discovered: neither actress knew any English. Wakabayashi was cast as Kissy and Hama as Aki and both were tutored in English. Hama was having too much difficulty with English, so the two actresses swapped roles to give her the role of Kissy, which had fewer lines.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When Bond discovers the SPECTRE base and tells Kissy to go summon Tanaka and his ninjas, her dubbed voice says "yes", but her mouth movement clearly show that she replied in Japanese ("hai").
