Never Say Never Again

Continuity mistake: When the XT-70s are launched, you see Polaris A1 missiles (single warhead) being launched, In the next shot you see Polaris A3 missiles (multiple warheads) flying.

Regulus

Visible crew/equipment: Before the chase between Bond's bike and Fatima, right when Bond opens the box where the bike is in, a lighting screen is reflected on the front light of the bike.

Continuity mistake: When Bond's bike is trapped in the tunnel, two white and black cars stop behind him, and two baddies with chains exit. When the angle changes, Fatima exits her car and everything's repeated: the two cars come to a stop and the baddies exit again.

Continuity mistake: During the credits Bond jumps into a window. From the outside, the window to the left of where Bond jumps through, is complete; from inside the house the window is shed to pieces.

Audio problem: In the tango-scene the music doesn't match the moves. And since Bond is an excellent dancer, he wouldn't make such a mistake. (01:17:30)

Other mistake: When Fatima Blush intentionally water-skis straight up the ramp to the waterfront bar where James Bond catches her, she apologizes, "How reckless of me! I made you all wet!" To which Bond replies with his classic line, "Yes, but my martini's still dry." However, Bond's beige sport jacket (which should instantly show any water stains) is not in the least bit wet.

Continuity mistake: Right before Bond grabs a bike and chases Fatima Blush, he is eating an apple which swaps from yellowish-red to fully yellow, between shots.

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the US submarine from below, the waves above move too fast and it is clear that they are little ripples on the water above a small model boat.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Domino jump into the water from Palmyra, the Arabs are shooting at them with rifles from the wall. The submarine starts shooting at the top of the wall. But in the second shot of the submarine it is very far in the background - shooting at a point in the wall which is very very far from where Bond and Domino are in the water.

Jacob La Cour

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

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.
