From Russia With Love

Audio problem: At the end, Bond gets a phonecall from someone in the hotel room. As he says "yes" on answering, his mouth doesn't move. (01:45:50)

Continuity mistake: The train is stopped because Spectre has pushed a 1950's style Dodge truck full of flowers in the trains path. Later, when James is driving it trying to avoid the grenades dropped from a helicopter, the truck has turned into a very different looking 1961 Chevrolet truck.

Continuity mistake: When JB is driving the truck and is being bombed with grenades from the helicopter the truck gets smoke blackened, but when he arrives at the speedboat all the smoke marks have gone.

Visible crew/equipment: When James Bond shoots down the helicopter then it crashes, he emerges from the rocks to run from the crash site to the right of picture, just as you see Sean Connery emerge from behind rocks from the right in the same scene. So for about a second there are two James Bonds in picture. One is the stunt man and the other is Sean Connery. (01:38:05)

Other mistake: When James Bond's friend Kerim Bey gets shot at the gypsy camp, look closely, he is rubbing fake blood into his own arm. (00:43:10)

Continuity mistake: Just after Grant has hit 007 on the back of his head and knocked him out, Grant searches through the pockets of 007, he takes out some money and puts it into his lower left side pocket. But when 007 kills Grant and searches his pockets, 007 takes back the money from Grant's inside top right hand pocket.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Tatiana are in the boat chase and are being followed, they drop four cans of fuel in the sea. When Bond blows them up, there are way more than four fuel explosions in the sea. (01:43:15)

Other mistake: In the title sequence, the name of actress Martine Beswick (she plays one of the gypsy fighting girls) is misspelled as Martin Beswick. (00:04:05)

Continuity mistake: James Bond is chased by an helicopter. When seen from above, Bond carries an attaché case in one hand; when shown from the ground, the case is in the other hand. This change happens many times, as the camera point of view switches.

Revealing mistake: During the fight on the train between Bond and Grant, you can spot the stunt double for the Grant character by noticing the bad toupee.

Continuity mistake: When Rosa Klebb is interviewing Tatiana, she is wearing a pair of glasses, and she makes a reference to Tatiana having had three lovers, then as Tatiana answers back, Klebb is no longer wearing the glasses. (00:15:50)

Audio problem: When Klebb visits SPECTRE Island and first speaks with Morzeny, most of the conversation heard does not synch up with their lips. (00:12:10)

Continuity mistake: In the gypsy camp fight, the same bad guy is first of all shot by 007 and is shot again seconds later by Karim Bey. (00:42:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Bond is being led into the Bazaar in Istanbul spot the crowd being held behind a barrier.

Continuity mistake: When Kerim Bey is making a sniper shot towards a billboard with the rifle being steadied on Bond's shoulder, check out Bond's eyebrows - they are long in one shot, short in another....obviously painted on. (00:49:05)

Continuity mistake: When Grant hits 007 on the back of the head with his gun, he falls onto his back about six inches away from the seat, but in the next shot 007 is lying on his right side and his face is right up against the seat.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Tatiana first meets Rosa Klebb in Istanbul, the hand of a crew member is seen closing the door behind Tatiana when she enters the room (from the other side of the door - not the side Tatiana and Rosa are on). (00:14:50)

Visible crew/equipment: In the boat chase, the director's waving hand can be seen reflected in the windshield of Bond's boat at several points. (01:43:00)

Other mistake: When Tatiana enters Bond's room, he is about to take a shower. He never goes and turns it off. (00:51:10)

Suggested correction: How is this a movie mistake? A trained spy with a license to kill hears a noise in his hotel room, and he goes to investigate. Turning the shower off would alert the intruder that he was on to them.

Donald "Red" Grant: Is any of the opposition around?
James Bond: Not in any condition to be worried about.
