Diamonds Are Forever

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.

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: 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: 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.
