Continuity mistake: When Melina's car is hit by the machine gun, we see a close-up of the back end of the car, including the 2CV6 sign. Later in the car chase there suddenly is a Spanish national sticker (E) to the left of the 2CV6 sign. The bullet holes are different as well.

Continuity mistake: The escape scene from Gonzalez's villa. Bond uses a sun umbrella as a parachute. The camera shows Bond jumping, under the opened umbrella. At that point, the umbrella canopy doesn't have any bullet holes in it. Bond reaches the ground, lets go of the umbrella and runs. The camera cuts to the guard on the ledge above about to fire at the umbrella. He hasn't yet fired any bullets, but in the next shot there are suddenly already bullet holes in the canopy before the guard actually begins firing.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bond kills the henchman on the cliff, when he falls off for a split second you can see the rigging and framework from the studio set showing that bit was done in the studio.

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.

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.
