From Russia With Love

New this week Continuity mistake: When we see the agent waiting for Bond at the Zagreb train station, he has a handkerchief in the pocket on the right-hand side of his suit coat. When he is talking to Bond on the train platform, the pocket is now on the left side.

New this week Continuity mistake: When Bond tells Sylvia that he has to make a phone call, Sylvia passes Bond his shirt and he walks over to the car. Bond then picks up the phone in the car and starts to put his shirt on. After a quick cut to Miss Moneypenny, we then return to Bond and he has now managed to put his shirt completely on and buttoned, one-handed, in the space of just five seconds.

New this month Revealing mistake: When Bond kills Red Grant in the train compartment by strangling him with his own garrote wire, the final shot reveals that the garrote is missing and Bond is faking it.

New this month Continuity mistake: When the train conductor takes Bond (as Mr Somerset) to the compartment where Kerim Bey and the Russian have been killed, you can see that Bond is standing in front of the door of the compartment when the camera is in the corridor. When the conductor opens the door to the compartment, Bond can be seen standing on the far side of the door and is not seen until right before he enters.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Bond says "Tell our host his hospitality overwhelms me," after the belly dance at the gypsy camp, Bond takes the handkerchief out of the pocket of his suit and starts wiping his hands with it. He is not wiping his hands in the next shot, but in the shot after that, he is.

Continuity mistake: When JB is driving the white truck and is being bombed with grenades from the helicopter the truck gets smoke blackened, but when he arrives at the speedboat all the smoke marks have gone.

Continuity mistake: The train is stopped because Spectre has pushed a 1950's style Dodge truck full of flowers in the trains path. Later, when James is driving it trying to avoid the grenades dropped from a helicopter, the truck has turned into a very different looking 1961 Chevrolet truck.

Visible crew/equipment: When James Bond shoots down the helicopter then it crashes, he emerges from the rocks to run from the crash site to the right of picture, just as you see Sean Connery emerge from behind rocks from the right in the same scene. So for about a second there are two James Bonds in picture. One is the stunt man and the other is Sean Connery.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Tatiana are in the boat chase and are being followed, they drop four cans of fuel in the sea. When Bond blows them up, there are way more than four fuel explosions in the sea.

Other mistake: When James Bond's friend Kerim Bey gets shot at the gypsy camp, look closely, he is rubbing fake blood into his own arm.

Continuity mistake: Just after Grant has hit 007 on the back of his head and knocked him out, Grant searches through the pockets of 007, he takes out some money and puts it into his lower left side pocket. But when 007 kills Grant and searches his pockets, 007 takes back the money from Grant's inside top right hand pocket.

Will

Continuity mistake: When Rosa Klebb is interviewing Tatiana, she is wearing a pair of glasses, and she makes a reference to Tatiana having had three lovers, then as Tatiana answers back, Klebb is no longer wearing the glasses.

Will

Continuity mistake: James Bond is chased by an helicopter. When seen from above, Bond carries an attaché case in one hand; when shown from the ground, the case is in the other hand. This change happens many times, as the camera point of view switches.

Continuity mistake: When Grant hits 007 on the back of the head with his gun, he falls onto his back about six inches away from the seat, but in the next shot 007 is lying on his right side and his face is right up against the seat.

Will

Continuity mistake: In the gypsy camp fight, the same bad guy is first of all shot by 007 and is shot again seconds later by Karim Bey.

Continuity mistake: When Kerim Bey is making a sniper shot towards a billboard with the rifle being steadied on Bond's shoulder, check out Bond's eyebrows - they are long in one shot, short in another....obviously painted on.

Other mistake: In the title sequence, the name of actress Martine Beswick (she plays one of the gypsy fighting girls) is misspelled as Martin Beswick.

DapperDan

Visible crew/equipment: In the boat chase, the director's waving hand can be seen reflected in the windshield of Bond's boat at several points.

sebb

Other mistake: When Tatiana enters Bond's room, he is about to take a shower. He never goes and turns it off.

Revealing mistake: During the fight on the train between Bond and Grant, you can spot the stunt double for the Grant character by noticing the bad toupee.

Trivia

The actor playing the Bond double strangled by Red Grant in the pre-credits sequence naturally resembled Sean Connery so much that the scene was re-shot with another actor with a moustache.
