Bernard Lee, who played 'M' for the last eleven 007 films, died while preparing for the role. As a mark of respect, Broccoli refused to recast the role, changing the script to say that 'M' was on leave.

The close-ups of Carol Bouquet and Roger Moore for the underwater scenes were actually filmed in a studio with a windfan to produce the effect of floating hair, as Bouquet has sinus trouble and could not shoot underwater. The scenes were then played in slow motion with the bubbles added in.

Julian Glover (who played the villain Aris Kristatos) was twice considered to play James Bond. Unfortunately though at first he was too young to play the secret agent and the second time they came to him, he was too old. Glover said that he was just as happy to have played a Bond villain however.

I have it on good authority that Carole Bouquet was dubbed, so was John Wyman, John Moreno and John Hollis.
