Diamonds Are Forever

Plot hole: When Bond first sees that Willard White is actually Blofeld in the hotel penthouse, Blofeld shows him how he has been impersonating Willard White's voice with a machine. But that only works through the phoneline - out loud it would be different.

Continuity mistake: When Bond arrives at Tiffany's home in Amsterdam, he rings her doorbell. It's shown that she's living on the 4th floor (T. Case), but through the speaker-system she tells Bond to come upstairs to the 3rd floor.

Suggested correction: Although her outside indicator does say "4", it's possible that unit 4 could be located on the 3rd floor.

What we in the US call the second floor is the first floor in Europe. So a US fourth floor is a European third floor.

Definitely not everywhere in Europe. In the Nordic countries, for example, the first floor's the first floor.

True, but this scene takes place in the Netherlands where floors are numbered Ground, First, Second etc. So, not a Nordic country.

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.
