Live and Let Die

New this month Continuity mistake: In the opening, in some shots the snake is straight whilst in others it is curled back in and under itself.

Continuity mistake: When the guy with the snake is shot Baron Samedi re-appears and you can distinctly see the bloke holding the snake again.

Visible crew/equipment: When 007 takes the taxi outside the Oh Voodoo Cult Shop, you can see the reflection of the crew on the window of the car.

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: In the boat chase, when Bond comes to the shipyard, the goon can't find him. But there would be obvious foam/wake marks and waves after Bond's boat for several minutes.

Audio problem: Before Bond and Solitaire gets into Kanaga's den in the end of the movie, we see two guards running. However there are only footsteps from one person.

Continuity mistake: Watch the way the bloke at the beginning is holding the snake. Every time the camera shows him from behind he has one hand by its head, yet each time the angle changes to the front his hand is halfway down the snake's body.

Revealing mistake: When Tee Hee bends the barrel of Bond's Walther PPK, in the close-up, the score marks where the barrel has been pre-cut are visible.

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Bond and Kananga are fighting underwater, Bond shoves the bullet in Kananga's mouth. Then Kananga rises up and explodes. He explodes like a balloon, with not much blood at all.

Continuity mistake: After Bond has finished ripping the wings off the Cessna and parks up, he speaks to the old female pilot, and in doing so, the camera shows that the wings behind her head are still intact, when they were already ripped off at this point.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Quarrel goes to shore there are clear shadows and sun reflections, showing it was actually shot at daytime.

Plot hole: James Bond shouldn't have gotten away at the end of the airport scene where he steals an airplane and pretends to be a flying instructor. He had no wings with which to fly away and he ended back up right outside the airport, so the henchmen, who seemed to still be chasing him one shot before he parked, should have been right on him waiting when he got out of the plane.

Visible crew/equipment: Four patrol cars are chasing Bond and the villain by the road. Bond and the villain arrive at a dead end and they jump over the road with their boats. The four vehicles collide just after. Look carefully and you will see that the right-seat passenger of the red car and the driver of the blue one wear a yellow protective helmet.

Continuity mistake: When TeeHee is destroying Bond's gun with his mechanical arm, you can see that the gun already has a crease on it even before it is bent.

Factual error: In the scene where Kananga's henchman Adam is being interrogated by Sheriff Pepper by his car at the riverside, the boat chase arrives and two boats jump clearly over head disillusioning Sheriff Pepper and allowing Adam to make a quick getaway. However, as Adam is getting away in his car, screeches can be heard coming from the tyres, but they are on a dry dirt road.

Other mistake: When the camera does a close up shot of Bond in the sky in the Microlight, the fabric is far too loose for it to actually be in the sky. The fabric would be taut as the air flows over it.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bond and Solitaire are tied to the orange thing you can see a wire on the bullet which makes it fly across the room.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is on the small isle in the crocodile pond, one of the crocodiles begins to climb the rock. Cut to Bond and then back at the crocodile who has now turned into an alligator. In the next shot it is once again a crocodile.

Revealing mistake: When Madeline Smith (The Italian agent credited as Beautiful Girl) emerges from the wardrobe / closet, she embraces Roger Moore. He then uses his magnetic Rolex to pull down the zipper on the back of her dress. If you look closely, you can see the cable/wire under dress pulling the zipper down.

Plot hole: Bond steals the ancient double decker bus, not noted for any kind of speed, and he also doesn't get much of a head start against the police, yet in later shots he's quite a distance ahead of them. Skilled driver or not, it's a bus.

Other mistake: When Tee Hee strikes Bond to supposedly knock him out, he makes contact with Bond's right shoulder blade. He doesn't strike anywhere near the neck/head region, which is where you would hit if you were trying to knock someone unconscious.

Visible crew/equipment: In New York City, when the taxicab goes up the steps and crashes into the trash cans, the ramp that the car travels on is visible.

Other mistake: When James kills the snake in his bathroom with the flame from his cigar and the aerosol, the carpet doesn't appear even singed.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the film, when James Bond pushes Tee Hee outside the train, you can see his real arm during one quick shot.

Dr Wilson

Continuity mistake: After Bond has killed the snake with the aerosol can in his hotel bathroom, he puts down the cigar he is smoking next to the sink. When he hears the door opening, he walks into the bedroom and the cigar is back in his mouth again.

Character mistake: When Rosie points the gun at Quarrel on his boat, she says she might have shot him. He says she might even have killed him if she had taken off the safety catch. Like most revolvers, the Model 19 .357 Magnum has no safety.

BocaDavie

Character mistake: When Rosie sticks her revolver in Bond's room and Bond flips her onto the bed, Bond incorrectly identifies the gun as a Smith and Wesson .38 which would make it a model 10 or 15. It was actually a Model 19 .357 Magnum.

BocaDavie

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Solitaire are on the lift where they were put by Mr. Big, look carefully at Bond's watch. The face is concave with the crystal over it. When he uses the cutting function, the whole face is now rounded like a dome.

Movie Nut

Factual error: The henchman with the prosthetic arm bends Bond's gun. It would require something in the range of 1000 pounds of pressure to bend a gun like that. It would be impossible for anyone to generate that much pressure since the arm is driven only by human muscle.

Continuity mistake: When Tee Hee appears from the meeting room in Mr Big's apartment, the doors to the meeting room open twice between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Tee Hee is about to bend the barrel of Bond's Walther PPK, he has his index finger on the trigger guard of the gun, but the next shot shows him holding the gun with all his fingers around the handle.

Trivia

Demond Lewellyn, who played "Q", only failed to make an appearance in two of the first 19 Bond Movies. He wasn't in "Dr. No" ("Major Boothroyd" is introduced, however, played by Peter Burton), and this film, because of the stupid belief by the producers that Bond fans wanted fewer gadgets.
