Corrected entry: Just before Bond overtakes the white lorry, there is nothing coming the other way. In the shot of him overtaking it, there is a blue lorry. After Bond has passed the white lorry, the blue one disappears.
Corrected entry: Stromberg's ship "The Liparus" had to be large enough to house the three submarines, the operations room, the room with the weapons and missiles, and the rooms for the captured prisoners...but with a ship that had at least a few hundred crew, where did they sleep?
Corrected entry: In the first scene featuring Stromberg, he is onboard his submarine sitting at his dining table. In the background there is a fireplace against the wall with a lit fire in it. Having a fire burning in a submarine would not be a good idea as when the submarine is submersed there is only a limited oxygen supply and the fire would consume a lot of that valuable oxygen. Also, where are the fumes from the chimney venting to? Are the fumes supposed to vent outside the submarine whilst it is submerged, without seawater getting in and flooding the sub?

Corrected entry: When Bond arrives at the pyramids, there's a shot of him walking towards them, with the seated audience at the bottom left of the screen. They're models or something, because look closely at them, and you can see what look like ripples going through them - clearly some kind of effect.Jon Sandys
Corrected entry: After the two missiles blow up the submarines, and then there is the scene with the nuclear explosion, you can see a palm tree at the bottom of the screen. The "globe map" shows the subs in the middle of the ocean.
Corrected entry: How can the transparent course map showing the tracking of the Ranger, which (apparently) has been sent by Stromberg's secretary, have exactly the same proportions as the secret course computer on the British naval base? It couldn't have been stolen from that computer - at the base - since Stromberg only had a submarine tracking system - not a hacking satellite.Jacob La Cour
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, when 007 attempts the ski jump off the cliff in the Austrian mountains, dropping his skis and displaying the Union Jack on his parachute, you can see a beaten path on the mountain before the cliff. This suggests that either other people have been stupid enough to jump off that cliff, that the jump had been attempted before the actual shot was taken, or that the path was beaten down so that Rick Sylvester (the stuntman) could glide off of the cliff with ease. Whatever the reason, I don't think movie-goers were supposed to see that. (00:07:20)
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when James Bond and the Russian major climb into the escape sub soaking wet, they sit on a round bed covered with a white comforter. When the Russian major leans over to hug James, you can see a red stain on the white comforter where she had been sitting. Most likely this is from her red dress being wet, but it looks really bad, if you know what I mean.
Corrected entry: The electricity from a common light bulb would hardly be enough to shock someone, even if applied directly to Jaw's teeth, especially if the bulb is broken taking away the vacuum with which an electric current could carry most ideally. Besides, Jaw's natural teeth would not be able to conduct the electricity from his metal teeth that well anyway.
Corrected entry: When, near the beginning of the film, Bond puts the transparency on the screen, the lines match up almost perfectly. Then a few seconds later when we see the screen in the background, the tracks don't line up.
Corrected entry: The stick shift on the Lotus Esprit doubles as a joystick for the torpedo guidance system. If this were a true analog control it would be nearly impossible to shift gears unless the entire transmission on the car was electronic. On the other hand, if it was a conventional mechanical gearbox, the gates for each gear would interfere with precise control of the guidance system.
Corrected entry: When they dunk the white Lotus Esprit from the pier, the Russian major [Barbara Bach] is visibly startled at the concept of hitting the water with the car, but a few moments later she skilfully discharges a mine to destroy the pursuing mini-sub and boasts that she stole the blueprints for the car two years earlier. Wouldn't she know not to worry about the water if she had seen plans detailing that the car is really a submarine?
