Casino Royale

Continuity mistake: When Andress is taken hostage outside the casino watch the background to see the bouncer walk inside the Royale yet when Sellers runs outside the bouncer is outside again.


Continuity mistake: While going quickly around a sharp bend, the milkfloat sheds most of its load. In the next shot, the back is full of milk crates again.



Continuity mistake: There are sheep all around M's car, but in the short closeup of the chauffeur (John Le Mesuier) getting in there are none visible through the windows.



Continuity mistake: When we first see the remote-controlled milk float its front number plate is normal. When it starts moving, though, there is a piece of red tape over part of the plate. The red disappears again in subsequent shots.



Continuity mistake: There are several differences between the minature model of the hovercraft like thing that Mata is in and the full size model. For example, the full size model has red markings near the antennae and a silver bottom whereas the minature has no markings and a predominantly red bottom.



Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Ursula Andress spins in slow motion on her bed, while pink feathers float around her. In the next scene you can see the pink feathers still in her hair. In the next they are pink hearts.


Continuity mistake: Tremble's chips are next to his glass of champagne. However, when we see a closeup of his first hand (3 of clubs and 3 of hearts) Tremble puts his cards down next to his glass and the chips are not there.



Continuity mistake: The cupboard in Jimmy Bond's torture chamber contains, among other things, a bowler hat. But when Jimmy opens it, to get his atomic pill, the hat is no longer there.



Continuity mistake: Cooper slips the strap of Miss Moneypenny's nightie down, but then she sits up and the strap is back up.



Continuity mistake: The first shot after the opening credits is of 4 cars converging on a junction - the bottommost and topmost arrive first, then the other 2. The next shot shows them arriving again - in a different order.



Continuity mistake: When James enters M's office, the map on the wall has 2 flags in Canada and 3 across South America. A little later, when Hadley is explaining what they mean, 1 of the Canadian flags and 2 of the S. American ones have vanished.

Continuity mistake: When the bed with Peter Sellers on it starts lowering, from one angle the bed's dropped below the level of the ground around it, but then in a closer shot of Peter Sellers, we can see behind him that it's not moved. The next, wider, shot shows that we should have seen the hole's walls behind him.

Continuity mistake: Cooper takes Moneypenny's AFSD Report and drops it on the floor. In the next shot it is back on the shelf at the head of the bed.



Continuity mistake: Forydize is standing right behind Tremble, measuring him for his MI5 clothing. The camera angle changes and now he's standing right in front of Tremble.



Continuity mistake: Forydize says the Tremble has a 1965 Rolex Oyster Perpetual. Q gives Tremble a replacement that is meant to be the same, but with the radio and TV screen built in - Tremble says that he cannot tell the difference between the new watch and his original. But when a closeup of the new watch is seen, it is not a 1965 Rolex Oyster Perpetual.

Continuity mistake: After drinking the drugged champagne Tremble collapses the instant he enters the bathroom. But when we see him passed out against the bath he doesn't have his braces and holster on. They're hanging over the side of the bath but there was no time for him to have taken them off.



Continuity mistake: There is a hat on top of Jimmy Bond's piano. The strings hanging from it change position between shots.



Continuity mistake: After Mimi has been locked in her room, she rushes to the window to escape. In the interior shot, the window has one blind that is just the width of the center pane of glass. In the exterior shot there are 2 blinds which, together, cover all 3 panes.



Continuity mistake: When Miss Goodthighs comes in with a champagne bottle Tremble shoots and she says 'missed Mr Bond'. At this moment Tremble has no glasses. A few seconds later he says 'raise your arm' and then shoots at the bottle. He is now wearing glasses.

Continuity mistake: When James gets in the bath, there is a lot of foam behind him and on Buttercup's arms. The camera angle changes and all the foam has gone.



Continuity mistake: When Sir James and Mata Bond infiltrate Dr. Noah's headquarters, they hurry down a corridor with dozens of doorways. There are no flashing lights, but the corridor color repeatedly changes from blue with blue doors to red with red doors from one camera shot to the next.

Suggested correction: And exactly how would this have happened unintentionally? This was obviously done on purpose to create a disorienting, surreal effect. It may not be "realistic" but this is not a movie that concerned with realism.

Your attempt to speculatively explain it away as a stylistic choice does not negate the fact that this is a continuity error in a film that is full of continuity errors. It's important to remember that this film had 6 different directors, as well as disgruntled and uncooperative actors (Peter Sellers even quit and walked out in the middle of production). As a result, the movie has a piece-meal appearance and is riddled with plot holes and continuity errors.

Are you suggesting the two parts of the scene was directed by two different directors and one of them decided to change the color scheme before shooting? Considering the difficulty in creating the two different looks, it is practically impossible for this to have been done accidentally. A break in continuity is not a mistake if it is intentional.

Early in the sequence, Sir James and Mata Bond are looking for an escape route: They glance down one corridor, which is a dead-end that is all blue with blue doors; but they choose another dead-end corridor that is all red with red doors. As they flee down the red corridor, the camera cuts to show them from the front, back and profile as they hurry down the corridor. Although they deliberately chose the red corridor, the color changes from red to blue and back to red from cut to cut. The obvious answer is that they tried alternate takes Sir James and Mata Bond fleeing down the red corridor and then the blue corridor, but then sloppily edited the shots together into one sequence.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy Bond opens the cupboard to get his pills there is a mounted gun on the shelf as well. After picking up the pills he turns around and the gun has vanished.



Continuity mistake: Bond enters the temple and sits. 12 girls come in, they have their hands together and obviously aren't carrying anything. They kneel and are then suddenly waving giant sheets around which have appeared from nowhere.



Continuity mistake: Each time Tremble does his 'Indian beggar' lines, there is a woman in a red dress standing right behind him. She is not there in any other shot.

Continuity mistake: Most of the time that Le Chiffre is playing cards the women gathered around him are in the same position - e.g. the blonde twins are either side of him and the woman in the bright green dress is to his right. However there is one short shot, just before Le Chiffre does his levitating woman magic trick, where they are all in different positions - e.g. the woman in the green dress is now behind him to his left.



Continuity mistake: Early on in the fight at the casino someone smashes through the mirror above the bar. Later on the mirror can be seen to be intact.

When M and his entourage arrive at Bond's estate their cars are surrounded by sheep. They then drive on down a unsurfaced road to Bond's house, past a pride of lions he keeps on the grounds. A series of sweeping overhead shots shows us it is all one huge field, with no fences or the like. Those sheep aren't going to last very long .



Despite the long scene where they play each other at baccarat at the casino, Peter Sellers and Orson Welles were never on set at the same time. There are a number of theories ranging from stage fright to their alleged intense hatred of each other.
