Diamonds Are Forever

Revealing mistake: When Mr Wint puts the scorpion down the back of the doctor's shirt while he is looking at Mr Kidd's wisdom teeth, the scorpion is made of plastic and not a real one.

Revealing mistake: When Mrs Whistler's body is being removed from the canal in Amsterdam, it's clear in the long shot that it is just a dummy.

Continuity mistake: After Bond pulls the chain near the mudbath, the mud falls down as a thin stream. In the next shot, it's much thicker. (00:02:40)

Revealing mistake: When Bond knocks Blofeld unconscious with a lamp in the fight at the start of the film, look carefully and you can see that Blofeld is already knocked out before the lamp comes into contact with his head.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bond comes aboard the oil rig, Blofeld says "How disappointing." whilst Tiffany can be seen on a sun lounger in the background. Towards the end of this shot, she raises her right arm to her sunglasses. In the very next shot of her (closer up), she raises her arm again.

Continuity mistake: When we first see Mrs Whistler's body being pulled out of the water, her front is towards the boat. In the next clip, her back is towards the boat.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Plenty offers to help Bond with the game, behind them is a man in a yellow shirt and a man in a brown coat and green shirt. However in the next clip there is a lady in a pink dress instead of the man in the yellow shirt. She was nowhere to be seen half a second earlier.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Blofeld is watching Bond and Plenty in the casino on the surveillance camera, on the screen a man in a dark shirt can be seen on Bond's right side. But in the next clip (and in the preceding clip) a little lady in a white dress is standing on Bond's right side.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Bond first sprays foam on Franks he hits his left shoulder, but in the next clip there is only foam on his head and nothing on his shoulder.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: Shady Tree is standing over the coffin talking down into it when it opens. However in the next clip he is standing much further away - and lower - and not in a position to look down into it that way.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Frank's is lying dead on the floor he has foam in his hair, but when Bond drags him into the flat, he has foam only on his face and nothing in the hair.

Jacob La Cour

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

Continuity mistake: When Bond, in the casino, takes the envelope out of his pocket, he holds it with his right hand, with his fingers close to the upper end of the envelope. However, in the next clip he is holding it much further down and with his fingers in a different position.

Jacob La Cour

Plenty: Hi, I'm Plenty.
James Bond: But of course you are.
Plenty: Plenty O'Toole.
James Bond: Named after your father, perhaps?

Question: Why does the archvillain Ernst Blofeld want to eliminate the diamond smugglers (including Tiffany Chase) via his two assassins?

Onesimos

Chosen answer: Blofeld and Spectre has enough diamonds for the laser he is building to hold the Earth hostage. In typical Spectre fashion, since he is finished with the operation, he wants to leave no loose ends that could tie Spectre into the mix.
