    In my head canon Isthmus is supposed to be Panama so I guess LTK is a one-continent story if we don't count M and Moneypenny's scene in London.

    Like I said, Australia (I did double check because the continent contains Papua New Guinea etc but there definitely doesn't seem to be any crossover with Bond.)

    Didn't McClory's plan for Warhead 2000 mention filming in Australia?

    I don't remember, to be honest. And I was probably thinking of Mission: Impossible 2 when I was thinking they'd done a Bond movie in Australia. (And let's face it, Ethan Hunt is basically an American James Bond.)

    Baja?! I haven't got anything in Baja!
    Aside from the brief cutaways to mission control, I think YOLT takes place entirely in Asia.

    There's the big meeting somewhere between the Americans/Russians etc, but that could be anywhere!

    There's all that snow outside with what look like early warning radars but that could be Canada for all we know.

    Think they’ll do more of Gardner’s works?

    Mediocre(at best)Bond film but a great soundtrack and the henchmen in this one are awesome.

    The trimmings around the edge of the movie are pretty good and sometimes outstanding. It's just the center of the film is a gooey mass of pure, unadulterated Sigh.

    My main gripe with the film: Worst. Leiter. Ever.

    John Terry will probably always be my least favorite Leiter. He is THE weakest part of The Living Daylights and that's saying a lot when Joe Don Baker's Brad Whitaker is one of the two main villains.

    For me, he wasn't featured prominently enough to make as much of an impression as Norman Burton. With Terry, they were casting in the right general direction, if not hitting the mark. My biggest gripe with DAF, actually, is that they didn't cast Jimmy Dean as Leiter...he would've been perfect.

    And kind of physically resembled David Hedison in the following movie. So, yeah, that might have worked. "But what about his accent?" Have you not heard the differences in how Sean's Bond and Roger's talked? ;)

    Dean's accent was perfect...Leiter was supposed to be a Texan.

    Which means EVERY Bond film in any reality or timeline has gotten Felix Leiter wrong. I suppose one can sort of hear a twang of sorts in David Hedison's voice but it's not enough to make me go: "that guy's from Texas!" At least the entire franchise has been off the mark when it comes to that.

    Oddly enough one of the few things Never Say Never Again did right was Bernie Casey's Leiter. The best character in the movie in a lot of respects.

    Casting of Felix was always a failure on more than one level. Not only did they rarely aim even close to the books, but they weren't even casting remotely the same type from actor to actor.
