Audio problem: When Bond comes up from the basement under Palymra, the door swings open and drops by itself. It looks like it is a quite heavy steel door, but nevertheless it does not make a sound.

Audio problem: The dialogue with Largo is completely unsynchronized when he returns to the Disco Volante for the final chase and battle scene.

Question: I am completely confused about the ending of this film. I mean, the camera-geiger counter starts clicking showing the nuclear weapons are on the boat, but they are not, they are still being moved. And the weapons do get onto the yacht, but both parts of it explode right at the end. Wouldn't that destroy the bombs as well, eg. massive atomic explosion? It is probably just me, I am known to be slow, but can someone explain?

Chosen answer: Geiger counters show when radiation, even faint traces, are present. Therefore, if nuclear weapons were there recently, it will register. The scientist told Domino he threw the detonators overboard so the bombs could not explode. Also, nukes are surprisingly durable. Being in a large explosion will not detonate the core, only a specific chain reaction will.
