The Living Daylights Early Script Ideas
Posted 21 August 2002 - 02:57 PM
In an early script version of The Living Daylights, the Aston Martin chase originally was to have Bond and Kara steal a KGB automobile to start their escape and then end with an ice yacht. The Aston Martin and cello came later.
Also in The Living Daylights, Bond originally landed the plane on the deck of an aircraft carrier nearby. It almost skids over the end with the netting catching it just as it goes over. Bond and Kara then climb up from the plane onto the deck.
There's more of these kinds of sequences, but I'm still reading. These are the ones that caught my eye. I thought the Dalton fans would get a kick out of some of these ideas as they detail the evolution of the creative process.

Its worth checking out timothydalton.com as on there is several sections of early scripts detailing the scenes you mention above as well as the chase through the arms bazaar, Bond fighting a helicopter, the magic carpet ride (different to how it was filmed- check out the dvd for this) meeting a Gorilla, numerous versions of the "horse's " and various other bits and pieces. Let me find the direct link...hang on a mo....aha!:
Sorry for digging this out of the past but is the info around anywhere now?
