Never Say Never Again (1983) Tidbits

  • Kevin McClory had the rights to remake Thunderball (but no other Bond film) because of his collaboration with Ian Fleming. This film is not part of the regular franchise.
  • Connery said he’d never play Bond again. His wife helped convince him otherwise and came up with the title as well.
  • The casino where Bond and Largo square off in a videogame battle (baccarat is old, apparently) is named Casino Royale.
