[the morning after Bond sleeps with May Day]

Trivia:

This was Lois Maxwell's final appearance as Miss Moneypenny.

When Grace Jones as May Day screams during the mine sequence when sparks fly around her, her screams are for real. She did not know that electric cables around her would go off as a special effect for the scene.

Roger Moore's hair had to be thickened every day during filming.

Roger Moore celebrated his 57th birthday during filming, making him the oldest actor to play Bond.

The title song for this film, "Dance Into the Fire (A View To A Kill)", is the highest charting Bond theme song. It was the only film to go to Number 1 in the US and went to Number 2 in the UK charts.

Filming was delayed when the "007 Stage" at Pinewood Studios burned down on 27 June 1984. It was totally rebuilt in less than four months, and renamed "The Albert R. Broccoli 007 Stage".

The description of Max Zorin in the script was based on Sting, and written with David Bowie in mind, but he turned the film down.
