Continuity mistake: Domino grabs the pendant with her hand positioned sideways. In the close-up, the palm of her hand is face up. Then it swaps to the previous position.

Continuity mistake: When Nigel falls in the water, his hairstyle changes between shots. Sure there's a two seconds shot in between, but that would mean that Nigel had that short lapse to let go his suitcase, bend his head backwards, comb his hair and grab onto his suitcase again... Impossible.

Revealing mistake: During the shoot-out, all the baddies' heads and hands are bare, except for the one that gets burnt alive, who wears very obvious fireproof hood and gloves.

Continuity mistake: During the massage, Bond and Domino talk about Mr. Largo. Behind them is a woman who stands up and leaves, leaving the place empty. Shot changes and the place is suddenly packed with women. (01:02:07)

Continuity mistake: Largo's men leave the fishing boat in full on wetsuits to recover the warheads but the men who retrieve them are wearing sleeveless wetsuit tops and wetsuit shorts, also the wrong wetsuits for the colder UK waters.

Never Say Never Again mistake picture

Factual error: When we first see Fatima Blush she is waterskiing. She is doing several stunts which are only possible with one ski, the most notable being skiing backwards with one foot in the air. But when she releases the tow rope and skis up the ramp into James Bond's arms, she is on two skis. (00:45:55)

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film Bond is on a training exercise to free a trapped hostage. Since it is only a training exercise everyone involved is using blanks in their weapons; why is it that when Bond fires an automatic rifle we hear multiple bullets ricocheting? (00:03:25)

Continuity mistake: When the shark is pursuing Bond through the sunken ship, you see first Bond, then the shark coming through the door. The bubbles generated by his movement abruptly disappear as the shark comes through, revealing too obviously the stitching together of the two sequences. (00:50:50)

Q: Welcome back, Mr. Bond. I trust there will be lots of gratuitous sex and violence occurring.

Trivia: The title is an "in-joke" as Sean Connery said he would never play Bond again.

Question: Sean Connery took dancing lessons for 11 years in his youth, and he surely knew how to dance when he made this film in his 50s. So, why is his choreographed tango with Kim Basinger in this film so painfully, embarrassingly awkward and heavily edited? Is this perhaps due to the fact that Kim Basinger had virtually no dancing skills?

Charles Austin Miller

Chosen answer: Neither is a professional dancer. Having studied dancing some thirty years before does not mean someone has retained the same level of skills. As you mentioned, Connery was in his 50s by that time.
