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, and the director knew it, but they were low budget and had no choice, but felt that if the scene was working (it does) nobody should really be stopping to notice such things. Still.....

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.

Continuity mistake: When Honey is telling Bond that her shells could be sold for $50 in Miami, not only does the background appear to be the wrong section of the beach (it looks like the area up where her boat is stashed, not down on the sand bar) but at the bottom of the screen, some kind of buoy or flotation device bobs up on the water just behind Ursula Andress. A couple shots later, however, when they're running along the beach, the whole area is completely clear.
