Footnotes

  • 'New Otani' was the name of the hotel used as location shoot for the outside of Osato Chemicals. The hotel's gardens are also featured in scenes of the ninja training. The kimonos were given to the vendor who was working as the assistant voice coach on the production. In the letter concerning the provenance he writes I was asked by Sean if i would be prepared to take Diane Cilento out on the town in Japan, in other words, keep her amused...At the end of filming Sean wanted to express his gratitude to me by giving me something for making things easier between himself and Diane while he was trying to concentrate on work. The kimono's are not screen used but were worn by Connery on set and are of a similar style to the one he wears throughout the film.
