New this month Continuity mistake: When Professor Dent arrives at Miss Taro's house where Bond is waiting, he shoots at a fake Bond in the bed and eventually runs out of ammo, which causes the slide on the gun to lock back. However, when he is interrogated by Bond and drags his dropped gun to himself with his foot so he can shoot him, the slide is now locked back into normal position.
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 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: 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.kh1616
Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie Bond and Honey are in a small boat when Felix Leiter comes in a bigger boat and gives them a tow. When Bond sits next to Honey he sits on her right hand side. In the next shot he is on her left and in the next shot he is on her right, and back again, etc. (01:44:10)
Continuity mistake: Bond enters his room and spots Sylvia Trench playing golf. As they talk, she raises the golf club. When the angle changes, she holds it down and raises it again. (00:15:10)
Continuity mistake: In the famous casino scene in the beginning of the film Bond smokes a cigarette, but in the cuts between him and Sylvia Trench he sometimes holds it in his hand and sometimes in his mouth. (00:07:55)
Continuity mistake: When Bond gets into the car at the airport he is sitting behind the driver (left side of rear seat). In the next shot, he is sitting behind the front passenger seat (right side). In a later shot he is again sitting behind the driver (left side again).
Continuity mistake: During the 'You've had your six' scene, the cigarette in Bond's mouth disappears after he kills Professor Dent.
Continuity mistake: During the car scene, the black car rams into Bond. Then the camera cuts and the black car is about 5 feet behind Bond without any time to have slowed down. (00:48:45)
Continuity mistake: When Dr No, Bond, and Honey are eating dinner, Bond picks up and flexes a table knife. Then there is a wide shot where his hands are under the table. The next tight shot shows him again flexing the knife, then once again goes to the wide angle showing his hands under the table.
Continuity mistake: When Honey is with Bond on the beach, she is holding two shells by her chest and lowers them when she is talking to him. But when the camera angle changes to behind Honey in the next shot, she is now holding the shells by her chest again.
Continuity mistake: When Bond leaves the hotel to go to Governor's House he has no pocket square. At Governor's House he has his pocket square. Then in the next scene at professor Dent's, the pocket square is gone again.
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. (01:04:35)Garlonuss
Continuity mistake: When you see Bond in his hotel room for the first time, there are two bottles on the table, a clear one and a green one. When he re-enters the room and checks his traps, the green bottle has disappeared. Bond takes a bottle from a drawer but that also is clear so what happened to the green one? (00:23:40 - 00:41:00)Matty W
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.
