You Only Live Twice

Continuity mistake: When Bond takes the first sip of his martini at Henderson's place, the glass is about half full. You can see the level of the martini in the glass is below his finger. In the next clip there is more in the glass. The level is now above his finger, much closer to the rim.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: During the scene where James Bond is running along the rooftop of Kobe Docks the camera pans away to give an arial view. 007 fights off the bad guys and rounds a stairwell opening with the door open. As the camera picks him up from ground level, or at least roof top level it shows James Bond opening the door before going through.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes of the large fight in the crater the color of the 'lake' ceiling is blue/green - backlit from above - but in following clips it is totally dark.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond first arrives in Japan and is walking down the street, he passes by a woman (Aki) looking at something behind a store window, she is holding a small gold purse with a smooth gold band around the part that opens, but after she opens it and the shot shows a close up of the concealed mic inside, the gold band is now rough and twisted. (00:15:40)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Blofeld is about to kill Bond and he kills the Japanese man. Watch carefully as the cat gets down and crouches next to the Japanese man. The next shot of the man, and the cat's gone.

Revealing mistake: During the car chase scene, if you watch the speedometer on the car, it never rises above zero. That and the obviously poor image quality of the "road" in front of them shows that they were using projected film in front of the car.
