    Although Len Deighton is credited as a writer on the title page, he had written on the screenplay's title page (it is part of the photocopy and not original) "This screenplay has nothing do with anything I've written – Len Deighton". "Never Say Never Again" is handwritten above the typed title, "James Bond of the Secret Service" (again, part of the photocopy and not original).
