A View to a Kill mistake picture

Character mistake: When Bond and Stacey are in the file room in San Francisco City Hall, Bond pulls out the Division of Mines Paperwork on Zorin's wells and it has "HAYWOOD" written across it. The actual fault is spelled "HAYWARD." (01:21:40)

Character mistake: In the pre-credits sequence, when Bond is fighting the Soviet troops who are attacking him, Bond hooks a grappling hook onto the back of a Soviet soldier who is a riding an snowmobile, which sends the soldier flying off the snowmobile and hanging over an icy ledge. The soldier then says "Pomageete! Roger Moore pomageete!" which is Russian for "Help! Roger Moore help!" (00:03:05)

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)
