Dr. No

New this month Revealing mistake: The second car chase is made with the help from a greenscreen. The car's movements as seen on the background doesn't always correspond with Bond's steering and the following car is sometimes too close to the screen.

New this month Other mistake: In Strangways' house, Bond picks up a framed picture. Just as the other person comes into the shot the image skips.

Factual error: When Bond is involved in a high-speed chase on the way to Miss Taro's house, his wheels are squealing like crazy, but he's on a dirt road. (00:48:10)

Continuity mistake: After Bond gets picked up from the airport, evades a car, then fights with the driver, at one point he pulls back his right arm, but then the angle changes, and he hits him with his left one. (00:20:20)

Revealing mistake: When James Bond has a spider on his arm, one can see he's under a glass plate, and the spider on top of the plate. (00:41:55)

Continuity mistake: When Bond kills a patrolman on the island, his shirt is dry around his shoulders right after rising out of the water. (01:08:40)

Audio problem: When Bond and Honey are on the beach the hoods of Dr No come by boat. On the boat there is a guy shouting through a megaphone. As they sail away again the man waves the megaphone to his comrades and says "Full Speed Ahead". Yet his voice sounds identical to when he was speaking through the megaphone, though he isn't holding it to his mouth anymore. (01:04:00)

Dr. No mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Bond sits down by a table, puts some cards down, and pulls his gun out. He's wearing a tie, but when we see a closeup of him screwing on the silencer, his tie disappears. (00:54:40)

Continuity mistake: When Bond gets directions to Miss Taros house she gives the address as '239 Magenta Drive', but when he's in her house later on, while calling for a taxi, he gives it as '2171 Magenta Drive'. Miss Taro even nods to confirm it. (00:47:30 - 00:51:20)

Paul Bessant

Continuity mistake: A car chase early on has a cutaway to the speedometer of the villain pursuing Bond, of a dashboard totally and obviously different to the actual one on the car. [The director knew it, but they were low budget and had no choice]. (00:18:25)

Continuity mistake: During the car chase on the way to Miss Taro's house, we can see the same shot of the cars at the turn three times. (00:48:15)

Continuity mistake: When Bond enters the office of Universal Imports he throws his hat on the hat rack. After his meeting with M, he retrieves his hat from the hat rack, but it has moved to a different hook. (00:09:25 - 00:14:05)

Continuity mistake: When the black guy gets cut by the broken flash bulb, he has a lot of blood on his face and the rag. The next scene he's fine with no blood. (00:32:45)

Continuity mistake: The hearse that was involved in Strangways death and later chases Bond is a 1937 or 1938 Lasalle,with the pod style headlights mounted on stalks on either side of the radiator. The car that drives off the cliff and explodes is a later model car, with the headlights mounted flush into the fenders.It is very easy to spot while the burning car is rolling down the side of the cliff. (00:48:50)

Other mistake: After the decontamination chamber scene, Bond and Honey drink a cup of coffee. Honey very quickly passes out due to the tea being laced with some type of sleep inducing drug. However, as Bond throws his cup in anger, Honey flinches very hard. Surprising considering how quickly she passed out after drinking the coffee.

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Dr No attacks Bond up on the gantry we see two shots of the radioactivity meter where the red indicator is very close to maximum. The third time we see it just as they tumble off the gantry, it has moved much closer to the danger level.

Audio problem: When the powerboat shoots at the island, afterward, when the guy with the speakerphone tells them that he would be back later on, he then turns to the driver and tells him to move on, but when he says that, it sounds as though he's still talking in the microphone even thought the microphone is at his side.

Revealing mistake: When Dr. No crushes the Buddha in his powerful deformed hand, watch when he first touches it. It is made out of rubber. (01:29:00)

????

Factual error: Bond is worried that Dr. No has picked up the sails of Honey's boat on his radar, as indeed the good doctor has (in the movie), but radar systems cannot detect cloth or a wooden mast. (01:01:40)

turkman143

Continuity mistake: When Bond goes to Miss Taro's house, as he enters, one of the blinds is turned on the door, but they were all straight before. (00:49:50)
