Continuity mistake: The stranger who is watching Bond's funeral through binoculars lowers the binoculars after Bond is thrown into the water - as if looking down on the water. But the binocular is so low he's actually looking into the table.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film, during the fight between Bond and Hans, Hans pulls the shade off the big table lamp and it ends up on the floor. A little while later the shade is on the table.

Continuity mistake: At one point, during the scene with the helicopter dogfight, the tail wing of Bond's mini-copter is riddled with bullet holes (and yet the mini-copter continues to fly very efficiently), but for the rest of the scene, the tail wing is in perfect condition with no sign of the damage done to it.

Deliberate mistake: When 11 is dropped into the water and eaten by the piranha's, although the ravenous fish probably ate most of her and what was on her, there should at least be pieces of clothing that would rise to the surface in the flurry of activity. Not to mention that even though the water is a murky green all the blood from her body should have created a temporary, yet very noticeable darkening of the water.

Tobin OReilly

Factual error: When the Russian capsule is launched, a palm tree can be seen - and it's doubtful that the Russian climate could accommodate palm trees.

Revealing mistake: When Blofeld destroys the volcano lair, as the camera is showing a view of the volcano, you can see the pressure waves move the bodies on the floor and tell that they are obviously dummies.

Plot hole: Blofeld tells the bad guys that they had Bond and let him get away. The woman says "but Bond is dead. It was in all the papers." As we saw in a paper near the start, there was a well publicised photo of Bond, and when she met him he wasn't using any kind of disguise, so how did she not recognise him if she'd seen the papers?

Revealing mistake: When the rocket lands in the Volcano lair, you can see the thread used to lower it; a crane hook is even visible at the top of the screen.

Dr Wilson

Revealing mistake: When the helicopter with the magnet drops the villains' car into the ocean, look carefully and you can see that the car is empty.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and the Japanese girl arrives at Henderson's home, and a girl comes to welcome them, we can see that the car is parked on the opposite side before the previous shot.


Factual error: When Bird 1 is launched, both in the cave and outside, the exhaust plume and smoke trail is pitifully small compared to the plume of a real rocket.

Revealing mistake: Obvious model toy helicopters are used during the Nellie fight, with the models having no pilots inside.


Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film during Bond's "funeral", the shot cuts to a man watching the funeral from a boat through a pair of binoculars. The camera then moves to the newspaper next to him showing an "article" reporting Bond's murder. If you look closely at the "article" itself, you can see it was actually pasted onto the actual local newspaper. They probably bought a local newspaper and pasted the fake article over it to make it look authentic.


Continuity mistake: During the car chase sequence, the radio antenna of the black sedan disappears and reappears between shots. It is most noticeable when the sedan is being lifted off. In the close-up as the magnet is attached to the car's roof, the antenna is visible. In the shots in which the car is shown from above, the antenna has completely disappeared.


Revealing mistake: During the Little Nellie helicopter battle scene, the same footage of enemy copters being destroyed is used three times.


Factual error: When the Russians launch their ship, they are talking about Sputnik. In Russian, the technician says that it is 36 degrees while the English subtitle reads 72 degrees, which is not accurate. 36°C is 96.8°F.


Continuity mistake: When Bond's body is lowered down the ladder into the submarine it is glistening wet, but in the next clip when they start cutting it open, it is almost dry - and definitely not glistening anymore.

Jacob La Cour

Revealing mistake: When Tanaka's train starts moving neither Bond, Tanaka nor the girl is seen to feel the acceleration. They stand/walk perfectly steady. That is impossible in an accelerating train. It is clear that it's only the lights moving on the wall.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When the poison hits Aki's lips the killer must have been holding the bottle and string steady. But in the next shot he is seen crawling backwards using both hands and neither bottle nor string is anywhere to be seen. Later the bottle is in his pocket.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Kissy escapes from the gas in the cave she's wearing bright white shoes. But in the under water scenes and when she surfaces she has bare feet. Once back on land the shoes are back.
