Continuity mistake: Just after Loque runs over the countess in his dune buggy, Bond runs over to her, kneels beside her and takes her pulse. She blinks.
Factual error: In the pre-credit sequence with Bond and Blofeld, the helicopter makes a steep dive, however, the sound it makes is for a fixed-wing airplane, similar to dive bombers in WW2. Helicopters make no such sound.
Revealing mistake: When Bond throws the dead pilot out of the helicopter, you can tell it's a dummy as its arms and legs bend at impossible angles.
Revealing mistake: During the fight with Bond and the ice hockey players at the ice rink, Bond climbs into the Zamboni and "hits" the last hockey player, sending him into the net with the other two players. When you look closely at the footage, it appears the hockey player literally skates head-on into the Zamboni on purpose.
Revealing mistake: At the end, where Bond receives the "Come in 007" message on his watch, one can see that the watch has been filmed separately to the wrist: the wrist moves slightly , but the watch itself remains perfectly still.
Continuity mistake: During the fight at the ice rink, one of the ice hockey players tries to kick Bond with his blade and makes a hole in the wall in the process. In the next shot, when another player tries to hit Bond with his ice hockey stick, the damage to the wall has suddenly disappeared.
Continuity mistake: During the car chase in Spain, when one of the two black cars bump into Melina's 2CV, we see a close up of the driver and there no vehicles visible on the road behind him. In the next shot when the 2CV is pushed off the road, the second black car is almost directly behind him.
Revealing mistake: When Locque's Mercedes starts to slide off the cliff at the end of the car chase you can see cables holding it up.
Continuity mistake: The ski jump in Cortina d'Ampezzo is in the bottom of the valley - which can also be seen in the overhead shot from the top of the ski jump. But nevertheless Bond has a long ski ride down from the bottom of the jump. And in several shots during the chase it is clear that he is much higher in the mountains than below the city.
Continuity mistake: When Bond and Melina are being chased in Melina's car, after they roll down the hill and hit the road, the tires actually bend under the car. Then when they drive again, they are straight.
Visible crew/equipment: At the end when Max the parrot drops Bond's watch into the water you can see a piece of wire lowering it in.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Locque is kicked off the cliff by Bond in his car, it is a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, model W 116. But in the shot before, when Locque drives away from Kristatos' warehouse it is the predecessor of that model.
Character mistake: When Bond contacts the Chief of Staff after identifying Locque on the Identigraph, Bond reads his bibliography to him. The first appearance of the word bibliography is misspelled "BIBLOGRAPHY", whereas the second appearance near the bottom of the screen is spelled correctly.
Continuity mistake: When Bond jumps over the two henchmen shooting at him during the ski chase, he causes one of the henchmen to fall over. As he falls over, his motorbike does too, but the bike is back upright again immediately when Kriegler skis over them.
Continuity mistake: When the three ice-hockey players are warming up on the ice rink, you can see there is a puck next to the goal, but when the players start charging towards Bond, the puck has disappeared.
Revealing mistake: Many of the underwater close up shots are done with a fish tank in front of the camera and bubbles superimposed where the actors' breathing apparatus should be, but the location of the bubbles isn't always correct. This is obvious in the first underwater diving scene at the archaeological dig with Bond and Melina. In some shots the bubbles appear to come from her hand instead of her regulator. The position of her hand matches the location of the regulator in close ups of Bond.
