For Your Eyes Only

Corrected entry: In the scene where 'Q' leads Bond from the laboratory into the room containing the identograph, there are several Q-branch staff visible in the background. A moment later, however, when a secretary enters with tea, all the staff have gone home and the lights have been extinguished.

Correction: That's because some time passes between the two takes. Note how much further the work on the iconograph has come.


Corrected entry: When Bond and company attack Kristato's warehouse, it is in the middle of the night, however as Bond runs up the stairs to chase the escaping bad guy, he reaches the top in broad daylight.

Correction: The attack takes place near dawn. You'll notice it getting lighter as the action goes on.

Revealing mistake: When Bond throws the dead pilot out of the helicopter, you can tell it's a dummy as its arms and legs bend at impossible angles.

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.
