Continuity mistake: After Scarpine has knocked out Bond and pushes him into the back of the Rolls Royce, the position of Sir Godfrey's head on the headrest changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Bond climbs out of the burning elevator to fetch the hose in order to rescue Stacey, you can see the two cables behind the elevator door are unlit, but after a quick cut to Stacey, we return to the door and the cables are now on fire.
Continuity mistake: The locomotive that Scarpine drives in the quarry throughout the mine sequence has an all-green radiator, but when he and Zorin come out of the mine, the top of the radiator is black.
Continuity mistake: When we see Mayday jump from the Eiffel Tower in close-up, it's only a rather tiny jump (and would probably have resulted in her crashing into the tower on the way down). But in the next shot, shown from a distance, she is now about ten feet out and has completely cleared the tower.Gavin Jackson
Continuity mistake: During the steeplechase sequence, Bond is attacked by one of Zorin's exercise boys wearing a yellow helmet. After a quick cut to Zorin looking over his shoulder, we return to Bond and he is now being attacked by a different rider with a dark green helmet, while the rider with the yellow helmet is now at the back of the pack.

Continuity mistake: When General Gogol is in M's office at the end of the film, he is holding an Order of Lenin medal in his right hand, but few shots later he is holding a glass of champagne and the medal is nowhere to be seen.
