New this month Revealing mistake: When the row of missiles blow up near the end, not only are the effects bad but the amount of smoke shown is cartoonish and the missiles are still intact afterwards.

New this month Continuity mistake: In the opening scene Bond smashes the giant light on top of Blofield and he falls across the table, but in the very next scene when Bond fastens the strap, Blofield is lying horizontal to it. This is a continuous scene.

New this month Revealing mistake: In the opening scene when Bond pushes Blofield in the mud and we see his legs dissappear, they are obvious dummy legs and the feet have changed position.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Bond exists the car park using the trailer as a ramp he skims the tops of several parked cars, but when the police car tries it, the car crashes into a police car that has appeared from nowhere - it hasn't just pulled up as it is driverless.

New this month Continuity mistake: In the opening scene Bond drops a load of mud type mixture onto the guy in the bath and we see the mixture overflowing on the sides where Bond is lying but when he gets up he is completely clean.

New this month Plot hole: When Bond arrives at the oil rig he is in a silver sphere with no windows, but he somehow knows which direction to go in. Not only that, the parachutes completely disappear.

New this month Other mistake: In the opening scene when Bond is looking for Blofield his voice sounds dubbed and the hands we see, etc. are not Sean Connery's.

New this month Other mistake: When the car chase starts in Vegas in a close up of the two policeman chasing them the driver is wearing sunglasses and the background is badly dubbed. Silly thing to wear when it's nighttime.

New this month Other mistake: When Bond first meets Bambi and Thumper, Thumper is lying on a rock directly in front of Bond but for some reason he doesn't see her until she introduces herself.

Continuity mistake: When Bond escapes from the Willard Whyte facility in the desert in the moon buggy, a car that is chasing him goes over a ridge and turns on its side as the buggy speeds by. A wheel rolls back into the shot, all on its own. It doesn't belong to the car, or the three three wheelers also chasing, but looks like it belongs to the buggy, which has its full compliment of wheels all through the scene.

Continuity mistake: The famous car chase ends with Bond's car tipping up on its right wheels to fit through a pedestrian path. However, when it emerges the other side, it's tipped on its left wheels. [When the car enters the alley this was filmed in a studio. When the car exits the alley this was filmed in Vegas. The first few times the exit was filmed the car emerged on the correct wheels but the shots were unusable because of the crowds in the background watching the filming. This shot was temporarily abandoned and eventually re-filmed with a different stunt driver who famously performed the stunt on the wrong wheels. Realising this, the producers filmed an insert shot featuring a close-up of Sean Connery and Jill St John which shows the car tip back onto four wheels and then up onto the opposite two wheels (even though the alleyway would be too narrow to manage this!), which is in the finished film].

Revealing mistake: Bond escapes from the buried pipeline when two technicians open a hatch from the outside. One tech unlocks the hatch by rotating a large wheel which drives the locking mechanism. But when he finally opens the hatch, there's absolutely no mechanism attached. There's just a bare axle that the wheel turns on.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bond climbs off of the elevator and hangs for a few seconds, if you look closely at the ground behind Bond, you can see his shadow on the screen behind him which has the image of the ground projected onto it.

Deliberate mistake: During the moon buggy chase scene in the desert one of the Ford LTDs crashes and the front fenders,inner fenders, and doors fall off. Even if the car fell off of a cliff this couldn't happen unless all the bolts were moved previously.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene through Las Vegas, you can see the crowds lining the streets to watch the filming, yet in some of the street scenes there are no crowds.
