Suggested correction: Goldfinger is still in the car - he has sat back in his seat and the camera angle makes it look like he's vanished. The picture shown shows Goldfinger leaning forward to talk to Bond, then he sits back when the conversation finishes.

Continuity mistake: The famous car chase ends with Bond's car tipping up on its right wheels to fit through a pedestrian path. However, when it emerges the other side, it's tipped on its left wheels. [When the car enters the alley this was filmed in a studio. When the car exits the alley this was filmed in Vegas. The first few times the exit was filmed the car emerged on the correct wheels but the shots were unusable because of the crowds in the background watching the filming. This shot was temporarily abandoned and eventually re-filmed with a different stunt driver who famously performed the stunt on the wrong wheels. Realising this, the producers filmed an insert shot featuring a close-up of Sean Connery and Jill St John which shows the car tip back onto four wheels and then up onto the opposite two wheels (even though the alleyway would be too narrow to manage this!), which is in the finished film].

Continuity mistake: When James has just jumped out of the plane, he has a diving rig that is somewhat different to the one he has when diving on the wreck of the Devonshire. In the water he wears a twinset manifold air-bottle rig. While skydiving the rig was not manifolded and the bottles were in a different position on his back. To change between the two requires some work with a tool kit, preferably on dry land.

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.
