The Spy Who Loved Me

Other mistake: As Fekkesh leaves his seat abruptly and the camera pans over to Bond, there's a small skip in the video.

Other mistake: When the helicopter is chasing the Lotus Esprit, it is flying fast, doing sharp turns and firing bullets.

James Bond: Which bullet has my name on it? The first or the last?
Major Anya Amasova: I have never failed on a mission, Commander. Any mission.
James Bond: In that case, Major, one of us is bound to end up gravely disappointed, because neither have I.

Trivia: This applies to Moonraker too - Jaws' "teeth" were so painful that actor Richard Kiel could only keep them in for a few seconds at a time, which is why you don't get too many long shots with them visible. He only wore them when he needed to open his mouth.
