Suggested correction: His mouth does move, just not animatedly. Need Blu-ray to see it properly.

Suggested correction: His hand blocks the view of his mouth, which does appear to move (or his lips certainly do).

His yell is heard half a second before he covers his mouth, and he doesn't move his jaw given how loud he screams. https://youtu.be/PN5hXeR8mz4 (Min 2:04).

Audio problem: When Bond shoots Locque on the shoulder, he yells but does not open his mouth.

Audio problem: When Bibi says "You can go to hell!" to Kristatos, a slapping sound can be heard before Kristatos's hand makes contact with her face.

Audio problem: During the car chase in Spain, Bond says "Take the low road". Melina's 2CV gets flipped over, with Bond and Melina inside, and Bond then says "Not THAT low". However, his mouth keeps moving as if he is saying something else, but no words are coming out.

Audio problem: When Colombo pulls out Bond's gun it makes a noise like the top is pulled back. But he takes it out with one hand, and the hammer has not been pulled back. Even if he pulled back the hammer with a finger (which he doesn't) it wouldn't make that sound.

Trivia: Because of Carole Bouquet's sinus problems, the close-up underwater shots of Bond and Melina were shot in an entirely dry studio and not underwater. They were shot at a higher frame rate with wind machines. Derek Meddings, the special effects man, added the bubbles in afterwards.

More trivia for For Your Eyes Only

Question: Is this the only Bond film that features any references to Tracy Bond (other than the given "On Her Majesty's...")?

Answer: It is also vaguely alluded to in The World is Not Enough. When Electra asks Bond, "tell me, Mr. Bond, ha- have you ever lost a loved one." And it's written all over his face, so to speak.
