Dr. No

Stupidity: What purpose is served by having Bond and Honey's coffee drugged and knocking them out just for them to wake up later in the same room? They can't escape, so all the film needed was a time jump to when they were getting dressed for the meeting with Dr. No without being drugged.


Stupidity: Bond has been shot at and hunted down by armed men and dogs. He must conclude his life is in danger, and yet after Bond despatches the armed man in the creek who is carrying a British Sten submachine gun, he fails to pickup the weapon which has far superior firepower to his small calibre hand gun. Had he done, so he may well have saved Quarrel and avoided capture.

Revealing mistake: When James Bond has a spider on his arm, one can see he's under a glass plate, and the spider on top of the plate. (00:41:55)

Trivia: Because Dr No's lair is underwater, you can see fish swimming through the windows. However, an error was made when using footage of fish so they look larger than they should. In order to get around this, they added in dialogue where Dr No explains how the window works like a magnifying glass.

Question: This encompasses all the Bond films: which Bond movie is it that, in Q's lab, Q replies to some sarcastic comment of 007's: "It [the gadget] has not been perfected after years of careful research for quite that purpose, 007"?

Answer: In Goldfinger, Q says "It has not been perfected, out of years of patient research, ENTIRELY for that purpose, 007. And incidentally, we'd appreciate its return, along with all your other equipment, INTACT for once, when you return from the field."
