Audio problem: During the pre-credit sequence, as the girl falls onto the bed with Bond, she says "Commander Bond", but her mouth doesn't move.

Audio problem: Scarpine's comment about Bond hanging from the mooring line doesn't match his lip movement.

Audio problem: When Bond is knocked unconscious into the back of the Rolls Royce, everyone gathered around moves away. Listen carefully and you can distinctly hear a technician/assistant say, 'Mind that door.' It cannot be dialogue from the film due to the way it is said. (00:50:05)

Audio problem: When Zorin says to Bond, "Your mount, Mr. St. John Smythe", his mouth is not moving.

Audio problem: When Bond says "Be a good girl will you, and put her on automatic" to Kimberley Jones in the iceberg submarine, his mouth is not moving.

Audio problem: At the beginning where James Bond makes a helicopter crash the sound of the helicopter makes a sound of a plane about to crash.

Revealing mistake: When Patrick MacNee and Roger Moore are pushed into the lake in the Rolls Royce, you can clearly see the wire pulling the car into the water. It leaps out of the water as it takes the strain. (00:50:50)

Question: This is a two part question. When Zorin is flying over the mine in his zeppelin, he sees Mayday coming out of the mine with the bomb, and looks really shocked when it blows up, killing her in the process. But a few scenes before, he was quite happy to just leave her to drown in the flooding mine, so did he really love her and was just shocked that she had killed herself or was it shock because she removed the bomb from the mine and ruined his plan? I'm asking since Mayday tells Bond that Zorin told her he loved her (when they're both trying to escape from drowning in the flooding mine), so was Zorin lying to her or did he actually love her?

Chosen answer: Zorin is a psychopath. He may have meant it when he told May Day he loved her, or he may have just been telling her what she wanted to hear. Either way, when he thinks she'll drown in the mine as well, he doesn't consider it worth scrapping the plan just to save her. Once she escapes and has the bomb, he looks shocked partially because she wasn't killed but mostly because she's chosen to sacrifice herself to thwart his plans, something that a self-interested psychotic personality can't comprehend.
