For Your Eyes Only

Continuity mistake: When Bond is fighting the diver over the ATAC, Bond is holding onto it with his left hand. The diver then sends Bond crashing through a glass window, and when it cuts to the next shot, Bond is now holding onto the ATAC with his right hand.

Continuity mistake: As Columbo is chasing Kristatos up to the helicopter at the end of the film, he grabs his foot twice as they fall up the stairs in continuing shots.

Revealing mistake: Kristatos wants to run over Bond and Melina by boat, after he took the Atac. Bond and the girl swim to the sea floor, waiting till Kristatos is gone. You can see the (shadow of) the anchor hanging on the left side of the ship. But in the previous scene, you will notice the anchor is in the middle, on deck! And second: these kind of (speed)boats do not have an anchor attached below the water line, because it will reduce the speed. Conclusion: the underwater scene is fake.

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.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: When Bond is climbing up to the mountaintop fortress, he hammers in pitons as he goes up. But when he falls down, the three pitons are all level.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene the parrot takes Bonds watch and drops it, and it falls into the water. That would require that the parrot sat on the ship's railing.

Jacob La Cour

Continuity mistake: The angle from which the sunlight shines on Blofeld (and his cat) changes a lot during the helicopter sequence.

James Bond: Forgive me father, for I have sinned.
Q: That's putting it mildly, 007.
