For Your Eyes Only

Audio problem: When the helicopter dives it makes the same noise as a plane diving which is wrong. The same sound is used in several Bond films regardless of the type of flying vehicle used.

Audio problem: When the helicopter pilot is electrocuted a loud yell is heard, but his mouth is not moving.

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: After Bond and Melina's car flies over an olive field, the Spanish villagers cry out in Italian. This is due because it was shot in the Greek island of Corfu, which has strong Italian bonds and culture.

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.

Plot hole: Bond makes a huge tactical error after diving to the St. Georges. He knows the Russians and their operatives are after the ATAC. The ATAC itself is expendable to Britain, since it has a self-destruct mechanism that under proper procedure would have been set off when the ship sank. So why is Bond trying to retrieve it? Because he disarms the self-destruct, he actually allows Kristatos to get his hands on it, forcing Bond to track it down again and, to stop the Russians from getting it, HE DESTROYS IT! So why doesn't Bond, instead of disarming the self destruct, set a timed charge or toss a grenade in the room to destroy the ATAC while it's at the bottom of the sea? The answer is, of course, that if Bond destroys the ATAC before the bad guys can get at it, the movie's over. Even so, at the end, when Bond finally does destroy the ATAC, he tells Gogol it's "detente. You don't have it. I don't have it." Clever line, but it reinforces the fact that the British don't need it. They can build another one.

More trivia for For Your Eyes Only

Question: What exactly happens in the opening? I'm assuming Blofeld is the one Bond kills, but what was the point of it? Was it just to answer the question about what happened to him? And why was his face not shown?

Answer: The producers of the film had a falling out with Kevin McClory, who had the rights to the character of Blofeld. They decided to kill off Blofeld to show McClory that the films could manage fine without the character. Obviously, without McClory's permission they couldn't go so far as to say that the guy in the wheelchair is actually Blofeld, otherwise they'd get into legal bother, so they just left it to fans to assume that's who it is.
