About oysters and James Bond.

In the old movie "You Only Live Twice" (1967), the whole storyline is connected with Japan. 007's Girlfriend - Kissy Suzuki, Ama Girl, who is a professional Oyster and Pearl Diver.

To complete the mission, Bond and Kissy need to pretend to be newlyweds. Oysters are served for their first family dinner. The delighted superspy grabs the chopsticks and is about to put the first clam into his mouth. (With chopsticks, because he not only plays the role of a happy young husband but also portrays a Japanese). At this point, Kissy informs Bond that they will sleep separately.

In the dubbed version, which was shown in Soviet cinemas, Bond, pushing the plate of shells away from him, says: "I don't want to eat."

In the original version,  agent 007 says: "Well, then I won't need oysters either."
