Facts about

Singer/actor Burl Ives was originally chosen to play Largo when author Ian Fleming and producer Kevin McClory first tried to get the Bond series up and running in the late 1959.
Stuntman Bob Simmons appeared to have made a very narrow escape from the car explosion stunt during filming at Silverstone Racetrack, Northamptonshire, England. Director Terence Young raced to the scene whereupon Simmons surprised him from the side road as a gag. People watching the stunt generally didn't see Simmons exit the vehicle before the explosion, probably due to his exit-point being in a blind-spot to the point-of-view of those overseeing the stunt.
James Bond does not drink a vodka martini shaken not stirred in this movie but he does order a Dom Perignon 55 champagne by a swimming pool whilst dining with Domino.
