A View to a Kill mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Bond and Tibbitt are in the underground lab the big henchman takes out Tibbitt. When the henchman turns to take out Bond you can see Tibbitt in the background unconscious. It is not Patrick Macnee but a stunt double. (00:38:30)

Guy

Revealing mistake: When Bond is being chased down the mountain by the chopper, at one point the camera does a close up. As it does, Bond appears to have a dark line around him, and the background is blurry. This is because he's on a sound stage, and the rest is projected behind him. (00:03:00)

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When Zorin shoots Mr Howe dead in his office at San Francisco City Hall, you can see that Mr Howe has a bullet effect pack visible under his shirt. (01:23:40)

Revealing mistake: When Bond and Ivanova are at the Japanese spa, steam is coming from somewhere in front of the water, not from the water itself. (01:05:10)

Jacob La Cour

Visible crew/equipment: During the pursuit scene in San Francisco, there's a long shot where the fire truck passes in front of the camera just before the two police cars get separated. During that shot, you can see a camera crew on the top of the truck, in front of the ladder. (01:31:40)

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.
