You Only Live Twice

Revealing mistake: When Bond exits the room after his meeting with M aboard the submarine, he slams the door, causing the whole wall to move.

Revealing mistake: When Helga traps Bond with a smoke-bomb and wooden restraint in the plane before jumping out to safety, you can see the wooden restraint has a pre-made crack down the centre when Bond eventually breaks loose.

Revealing mistake: When Bond back-drops Hans back into the water during their fight in Blofeld's quarters, you can see that Bond is not Sean Connery but his stunt double.

Revealing mistake: When the camera goes to pan to Tanaka and Bond, watch the monitors behind them. The pictures don't stay within the frames of TV spheres, meaning they're animations poorly edited in.

Revealing mistake: Every time Blofeld's rocket is shown approaching the American capsule near the end of the movie look closely at the screen. When we see the rocket on the closed-circuit screens you can tell it's a badly superimposed image because you can see the stars passing by behind it.
