Dr. No

Continuity mistake: When Bond first meet Honey, in the first clip, when she's seen from the front, the sun is to her right (there is a bit of shadow on her left shoulder) but in the next clip, when she's seen from the back, the sun's to her left.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: One of Bond's traps in his room is his briefcase; he puts talcum powder on it. When he is done he sets the case down on the right side of the table. To the left is a mirror and by the mirror is an assortment of perfume bottles and a shaving bag. When he returns, the contents on the table are reversed exactly, and the perfume bottles are replaced by a magazine. (00:24:25 - 00:40:20)

Matty W

Continuity mistake: When Dr. No crushes the gold Buddha statue at the dinner table with his hands, it falls off the table onto the floor. However, when a wider camera angle is shown, right before the guard takes Bond to the elevator, the gold statue is back on the table. (01:29:05 - 01:29:50)

Matty W

Continuity mistake: At the baccarat table at the ambassador's club, Sylvia Trench has a red dress on. A piece of the dress off of her shoulder. In the first shot, this piece goes to the left about three inches from the broach she is wearing. In the next shot, the piece hangs down, covering half her broach. (00:07:00)

Matty W

Continuity mistake: Following their repast, Dr. No instructs his minions to soften Bond up, which they do with great enthusiasm. When Bond regains consciousness in the cell, his brown Nehru jacket, while a little scuffed, is quite presentable. Shortly after, when he removes it to create protection for his bare hands, his undershirt is ripped severely, and there is a blood stain on it.

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)
