For Your Eyes Only

Other mistake: When Bond is being chased on the bobsled track, just before he escapes the track.there is a shot of Eric Kriegler taking one last shot at him. In this shot however, Kriegler's bike appears to be in an open area and certainly not on a bobsled track. In fact it looks like a disused shot from when the chase started.

Other mistake: General Gogol's helicopter has Polish civilian markings, SP-(3 letters), repainted so they would resemble Soviet ones. However, Soviet markings were CCCP-(5 digits). When Gogol comes out of the helicopter, the manufacturer's logo (PZL-&346;widnik) is visible over his shoulder.

Other mistake: In the casino scene they're playing Baccarat. Bunky reveals a natural 8 (5 and 3). When Bond's hand is revealed, the croupier announces 9 for the win: "et neuf la banque" ("and 9 for the bank"). Only, Bond has revealed a Queen and a 5 (a natural 5).

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of the crew is visible on the captain of the St. George when he enters the boat.

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.
