Thunderball

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.

demodon

Other mistake: During the sequence where Bond flees the baddies during the carnival, it becomes clear that the locals made their own outfits. For a few seconds, we see a group with headpieces that read "007" - so much for "secret" agent. To add a bit of humour to the moment, a dog can be seen urinating against the passing parade.

Other mistake: When Bond and that girl are floating at the end right after the boat crashed, the bottom of the ocean looks very shallow and very much like the bottom of a pool.

Other mistake: The tape recorder in Bond's room spins very fast, and the tape is not that big. It would have to have been started not long before Bond came back, and could not possibly have been running all day.

Jacob La Cour

Other mistake: When the SEALs attack Largo's men, there is a scene where a SEAL swimming forward is shot with a spear gun. But the man simply doubles over; the harpoon - which should be visible protuding from his front - is not seen.

Other mistake: At the beginning of the film, when Bond and the woman are getting into the Aston Martin, the roof and boot of the car are covered in dust, but the rear window is clean. (00:04:20)

Will

Other mistake: The film takes place during the 1960s. In the hotel scene where Bond is with Fiona Volpe, he tells her what he did was for king and country. England had not had a king at the time for over 10 years, and any wording using "king" would have long since changed to "queen".
