Corrected entry: At Shrublands, Bond confronts Count Lippe, who sets the speed of the traction table to dangerous. Bond goes into a room where Lippe is in a Spitz Bath. Watch the sign as Bond goes into this room, as it changes when he leaves, from Spitz Bath, to Heat Treatment.

Correction: The room that Bond enters, actually says Massage and not Spitz bath, you can see a picture to the left of the door as Bond enters. He does not close the door but leaves it open, he leaves through a different door that he has to open, on the other side of the door it says Spitz bath and heat treatment, you can also see that it has a different picture by the side of the door.


Corrected entry: Bond and Leiter are in the helicopter and as Bond tells Leiter to get the military personnel to show up for the show-down, he makes reference to "Miami Beach and Orlando Beach". Seeing as how Orlando, Florida is about 50+ miles inland, there is no such place as 'Orlando Beach'.

Correction: There is an Orlando Beach, north of Miami Beach and to the east of Orlando.

Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie,in the scene where the man jumps off of the boat with Bond and Domino, what happens to him? Bond and Domino get in the inflatable boat the plane drops, but in wide shots of the scene, the man is nowhere to be seen.

Correction: Afterwards you can see the plane drop more than one lifeboat. He simply might be on another one.

Other mistake: When the Disco Volante separates to escape the cruisers firing on it, the "cocoon" is seen facing the pursuing ships stern first. When the shot changes to show the gunners firing on the ships the back half of the "cocoon" has turned completely around; the gunners are firing from the separated mid section of the Volante and the stern of the "cocoon" is now facing away from the cruisers, making it easy to see which parts of the scene were filmed live and which were done in the studio.

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.
