Corrected entry: When Bond goes to meet Leiter after setting up traps in his room, he's wearing a light colored suit. He returns to his room, then immediately goes to see Professor Dent about Strangway's samples. Now he's suddenly wearing a dark suit though he doesn't seem to have triggered any of the traps he set in his room, including the one on his wardrobe.wizard_of_gore
Corrected entry: In the film there isn't even one shot of Bond holding a Walther PPK. The only Walther shown is a larger PP-model, which also appears in the film's promotional photographs.
Corrected entry: Why would Dr. No want to kill Bond by placing a tarantula in his bed? Tarantula bites, while painful, aren't usually fatal. A black widow or a brown recluse spider would have been a better choice, as both of those spiders' bites usually result in death or paralysis. (Black widow or brown recluse bites are rarely fatal to healthy adults. Any spider is a bad bet as a murder weapon.)
Corrected entry: In the scene near the end of the movie, when Bond is crawling through the pipes, he comes across a section so hot, he wraps his hands in his torn shirt to continue crawling. However, when the water comes rushing in, he drops and positions himself flat against the hot pipes. There is even steam visible, but he doesn't appear to be affected by the heat.
Corrected entry: Bond shoots Professor Dent with a silencer on his gun. There's just one problem. The silencer is still in London. If you watch Bond's briefing, only the gun is out of its box, the silencer (presumably) is in the box, but it is never taken out. Bond then gives the box to Moneypenny before leaving.
Corrected entry: During the end of the movie, Ursula and Sean are in a drifting boat. Sean pulls out the oil dip stick and comments that they're out of gas. A boat has a fuel gage, not a dip stick to measure the fuel in the tank.
Corrected entry: When Bond and Quarrel are shooting at the "Dragon", Quarrels gun is a revolver, which should be a six- shooter. Yet, he fires much more than 6 shots, without reloading. The PPK should also be 6 shots.
Corrected entry: During one of the final scenes where Bond is wrecking Dr. No's uranium facility, he runs up on a small platform, grabs a random wheel and starts turning it frantically. The wheel is connected to an analog display that - in effect - shows that Bond is adjusting the danger level. What sort of facility would have a control that increases the danger level?
