Diamonds Are Forever

Audio problem: In the scene at Willard Whyte's house where Thumper and Bambi are fighting Bond, Bond gets thrown into 3 cylindrical statues. Just as the shot cuts, you can see the last column beginning to topple but there is no sound as it crashes to the floor in the next shot.

Audio problem: In the final scene, Mr Wint and Mr Kid bring in a dinner trolley. When Mr Kid places the desserts top over the bomb, we can hear the timer ticking. Yet, when the dessert is thrown and the bomb is revealed, the ticking cannot be heard.

Audio problem: When the man at the very start is being interrogated about the location of Blofeld, he says "Ciaro", but his lips don't move.

Audio problem: When Bond is driving away from the 'Moon base' his tires are screeching. But the asphalt is very rough - maybe its even gravel - so it couldn't make such a sound.

Jacob La Cour

Audio problem: When James Bond is collected on the airfield they are all getting into the car. You see how the right door is closed but you never hear it.

Per Mikkelsen

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.

Question: Is it actually explained in the movie why Willard Whyte is in hiding?

Answer: If you mean by hiding - why is he never seen normally - then it's because he is a recluse and doesn't like to be seen in public (like Howard Hughes was). If you mean by hiding - why was he not seen during the movie - then it's because he was being held captive by Blofeld and his minions. Spectre didn't want him out and about ruining their plans.
