Sarmed Mirza

Continuity mistake: When Bond is being chased through the parade, they show the float with the girls on it. In the background behind it as it rolls by is a red sign that says "The Perfume Shop". Later Bond is seen running up to the float and going inside of it to hide. When Fiona runs up to the float and sees the blood on it, the red sign is still visible, which means it was not really moving in the parade at all.

Continuity mistake: Bond swims to the beach after inspecting the underside of the Disco Valante for the first time. As he walks out onto the shore, he is carrying his fins and he is wearing a red wetsuit jacket, black shorts and has a knife scabbard attached to his right leg. In this shot it is also clear to see that he is barefoot. He tosses the fins aside and unzips his jacket to remove it. After a quick edit he is tossing the jacket aside and he is now inexplicably wearing shoes and has somehow lost the diver's knife scabbard attached to his leg. There was no way to have acquired the shoes and lost the scabbard in that instant.

Mistakes

In the scene where Bond is trapped in Largo's shark-infested pool, he uses his mini air tank to breathe. In most of the subsequent shots, look closely at the actor's face: it looks a lot more like a stuntman than Sean Connery.

Trivia

If you noticed that almost all of the bad guys including the villain are all Italian, this is no coincidence. The original story involved the Mafia and the villain Emilio Largo as a Mafia chieftain. The story was changed to replace the Mafia with the organization SPECTRE.
