Cut Scenes & Alternate
The ending had originally featured Honey being attacked
by land crabs when Bond rescues her. The crabs moved too
slowly to be really menacing and the ending was reshot without
the crabs. Still photographs of the earlier ending can be
seen on the special edition DVD.
During the Dent execution, most TV versions omit Bond's
second gunshot into Dent's back.
Some TV versions shorten the opening scenes to speed up
Bond's introduction. In particular a scene featuring a fellow
agent arriving at the casino in search of Bond is cut, and
the card game with Sylvia Trench begins just prior to the
famous "Bond, James Bond" introduction, omitting
the lengthy lead-up in the original.
Some foreign prints omit the scene entirely. Alternate
versions of some scenes were filmed for European markets,
including a somewhat more revealing scene involving the
character Miss Taro.
