For Your Eyes Only

Revealing mistake: Just after Loque runs over the countess in his dune buggy, Bond runs over to her, kneels beside her and takes her pulse. She blinks.

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.

Revealing mistake: When Bond and Melina are being chased in Melina's car, they are rolling upside down in a street of a small village. With help of some other people they tilt back the car on his wheels. At that moment you can see specially added roll bars mounted in the car to prevent the roof from crushing.

Revealing mistake: At the end, where Bond receives the "Come in 007" message on his watch, one can see that the watch has been filmed separately to the wrist: the wrist moves slightly , but the watch itself remains perfectly still. (02:03:55)

Revealing mistake: When Bond jumps off a wall with an umbrella at Gonzales' place, you can see that it is not Roger Moore but his stunt double.

Revealing mistake: When Bond and Melina are pursued by Gonzales' henchmen in Madrid, we see a close-up of one of the cars and the man in the back seat begins shooting at them. If you look carefully, you can see there is no-one in the front seat.

Revealing mistake: When Locque's Mercedes starts to slide off the cliff at the end of the car chase you can see cables holding it up.

Revealing mistake: During the fight with Bond and the ice hockey players at the ice rink, Bond climbs into the Zamboni and "hits" the last hockey player, sending him into the net with the other two players. When you look closely at the footage, it appears the hockey player literally skates head-on into the Zamboni on purpose.

Revealing mistake: When Bond reaches the top of the cliff, Apostis kicks him in the face. You can see that Apostis' boot never makes contact with Bond's face, but Bond reacts as if it did.

Revealing mistake: During the car chase, before the car rolls down a hill, you can see that it's not Roger Moore driving but a stunt driver. Furthermore, the woman has been replaced by a dummy or a stunt with a bulky and hairy wig that doesn't resemble her at all.

Revealing mistake: When Bond jumps out of the way from Claus's buggy on the beach, it is not Roger Moore but his stunt double.

Revealing mistake: When Bond pushes Kriegler through a window, we can see in the shot of Kriegler falling that he is just a dummy.

Revealing mistake: In the sleigh scene in Cortina, the closeups are recorded in a studio. The view of the background fits very poorly with the surroundings in the intermittent wide shots, which shows buildings close by, while the background just before showed a wide valley view.

Revealing mistake: As Bond prepares to drop Blofeld into the smoke stack, you can see that the cervical collar isn't put on correctly, the actor can still move his head. The intention of a cervical collar is to take all strain off the spine and neck muscles and prevent any movement that could cause damage to the spinal cord. To work, a stiff neck must be fixed so the neck is completely immobilized and slightly extended. However, wearing a cervical collar is very uncomfortable to the wearer, so they probably used a slightly lower one and didn't fully tighten it.

Revealing mistake: When "Mac" is told by the captain of St. George's to destruct the ATAC system, an explosion occurs and he gets thrown to the ground. When this happens, you can see that the man playing Mac is his stunt double.

Revealing mistake: Many of the underwater close up shots are done with a fish tank in front of the camera and bubbles superimposed where the actors' breathing apparatus should be, but the location of the bubbles isn't always correct. This is obvious in the first underwater diving scene at the archaeological dig with Bond and Melina. In some shots the bubbles appear to come from her hand instead of her regulator. The position of her hand matches the location of the regulator in close ups of Bond. (01:21:10)

Revealing mistake: When Bond enters Q branch, he is met by a technician with a false broken right arm. After saying "Coming along very nicely sir" the arm then swings to the technicians' right breaking the head of the dummy. This then reveals the arm of the technician, who then holds his hands suggesting the false arm is a 'Spy Gadget'. You can see that the revealed hand is not that of the actor but of someone stood behind the set wall. The actor has used his real arm to carry out the effect, and then clasped the hand of the extra person. This is supported by the fact the arm movement can be seen through the shirt, the skin complexion of the hand is completely different to the actor, the arm looks like he is being hugged, when he puts his hands together it is not natural, and as they move away he moves his right shoulder up and the 'third' arm remains in place.

Revealing mistake: When Bond attacks the ice hockey player in yellow with his stick during the fight at the hockey rink, you can see the player reacts to being hit just before the stick makes contact.
