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.

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)

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.
