Dr. No

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 Taro's house she gives the address as 'Magenta Drive, 2391', 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)

Suggested correction: She says 2 miles further on... Not 239.

The mistake is quite correct, though the number we hear Miss Taro state is "2391" not just "239" so I'll amend the mistake's text. Watch this part of the scene again with the volume on high, and you'll hear Miss Taro's instructions to Bond conclude with "Follow the road up the hill, down the other side, and two miles further on, on the left Magenta Drive, 2391. I'll be waiting for you."

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: 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)

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: 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.

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)

Continuity mistake: The dashboard of Bond's car in Jamaica keeps changing colour, from red to black, and back again. (00:18:25)

Continuity mistake: When the spider crawls up Bond's arm, and we see the spider in close-up, they are using a stand-in with much more muscular arms than Sean Connery.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: During the evening meeting in the bar we can see the band and a singer, but movement of his lips (despite that they were trying to hide them behind a big microphone) don't match what is sung. (00:30:15)

Continuity mistake: When Bond is firing at the armoured car, trying to shoot the lights out, he begins with an FN Browning Model 1910 but then all of a sudden, it turns into a Colt M1911, a pistol about twice the Browning's size. (01:13:05)

Continuity mistake: When Bond is confronting Professor Dent one of his socks varies in height from clip to clip. (00:55:35)

Continuity mistake: At one point Honey is not wearing a bikini top under her wet shirt when they are wading along the creek; the impression of her nipple is briefly visible through the wet fabric. When they are captured she is wearing the bikini top again.

Continuity mistake: As Bond's driver cuts a hard right turn, the tracks from previous takes are on the road. As the pursuing car draws up to that spot, the dust has quickly settled, and the tracks are suddenly gone.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When Mary, Strangway's P.A. is shot, her blood is on a differently patterned carpet than when Bond later on analyses the house.

Continuity mistake: When Bond goes to see a fisherman, to ask him about a man's death, the fisherman walks away, saying he knows nothing, and walks into a bar on the beach. He is talking to the barman and the bar has nothing on it, until a second later, when, suddenly, there is an open bottle of beer, a glass half-filled with beer and an ashtray.
