During filming, the gossip was that George Lazenby and Diana Rigg disliked each other. Before shooting the love scene where 007 asks Tracey to marry him, the cast were having lunch at Pinewood Studios, Diana Rigg called over to George Lazenby and jokingly told him, Hey, George! I'm having a lot of garlic with my pate, I hope you are, too!" Lazenby smiled and returned to his meal.
The producers originally intended to explain the change of lead actors in the film by saying that Bond had undergone plastic surgery because his old face was now too well known by foreign spies and terrorists for him to go undercover. However, after the opening action sequence, Bond states, "This never happened to the other fellow," an intentionally comedic reference to the change of actors.
....this is what I term choc ice music, and that's no snub. The lush strings and orchestration would be just what you'd hear in the interval at a double feature at a Cinema, when the lady would walk down to the front, laden down like a pack mule with Choc Ices, Mivvi's, Ice Cream Tubs, drinks on a stick, etc., for the patrons delectation......oh, what memories.
