Continuity mistake: When Bond is in the gypsy camp, the two girls Vida and Zora, who are about to fight over a man, are coming out of a caravan both wearing long skirts and scarves. When they each take their scarf to bind it around their hips, the skirts have suddenly disappeared without ever being taken off. (00:41:35)DapperDan
Continuity mistake: As the destroyed helicopter falls, it first falls straight and smooth. Then the wreckage is twisting, and finally on the ground. As the wreckage is on the ground, there is no indication that it has just hit, as indicated by the off-screen noise, and the explosions are on a an already settled prop set up for the stunt.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: When James encounters Tatiana for the first time in the bedroom of the hotel bridal suite, as he begins to sit on the edge of the bed he is holding his Walther in a non threatening position in the palm of his hand, with his thumb on top of the slide. As the scene cuts to the POV of Tatiana, the pistol is being held in a firing position, finger on the trigger, and switches back when the scene cuts back to the wide shot of both of them. Also when Tatiana reaches to move the gun away from pointing at her and says "Guns upset me" she returns her hand to beside her on the bed. At the cut to the wide scene, she is again moving the gun away. (00:53:45)Spiritfire
Continuity mistake: When Bond and the other board the train in Istanbul, they board the train at the rear which shows passenger coaches. When the train passes Kerim's son and does not stop at the scheduled rendezvous because Kerim has been killed, the passing rear of the train contains freight cars. When Bond and Tania escape from the train, the departing shot of the rear of the train shows passenger cars again.wizard_of_gore
Continuity mistake: After the scene where Klebb arrives via helicopter on Spectre island and meets Morzeny, they enter a training area and continue their conversation while walking through it. Just after Morzeny says '.we use live targets as well,' the scene cuts to a wide shot and they are entering the same training area once again, only this time from a path that is just right next to the one used before.

Continuity mistake: When James finds the Russian defector in his hotel bed, they kiss, a lot. Problem is: At first, she's wearing a generous amount of red lipstick, and when they finish, she is still wearing a generous amount of lipstick, and it is not smudged, which it should be, and James hasn't any lipstick on his face and mouth, which should be impossible - not even a smudge.kh1616
Continuity mistake: When Bond arranges to meet Tania at the mosque he is carrying a camera. When he spots the Bulgar spying on Tania he puts the camera down by a pillar. He takes out his gun and raps it in a handkerchief. The next scene shows him with his camera (without the gun) looking at the Bulgar again. This is a repeat shot from a few seconds before.bcoles
Continuity mistake: In the scene in the underground reservoir, Bond and Kerim set off in the little boat. There is a clip of the oar, which is turned over a few times to shake off some rats. In that clip, the oar does not move forward in the water (as can be seen from the air bubbles in the water). In the next clip the boat is moving again. A boat takes a little way to get completely still. It is implausible that Kerim would stop the boat completely to shake off the rats, and then start moving again. The clip with the rats must have been made afterwards with a stationery oar.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: At the gypsy camp, at the end the belly dance, we see Bond at the table with Kerim. In the first shot, there is about ½ meter of empty table between Kerim and the corner. Bond is at the end of the table. In the next shot, Kerim is right at the corner with his right hand very close to Bond's elbow.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: When Bond and Kerim-Bey arrive at the gypsy camp, they are riding in a white 1960 Ford station wagon. At alternate times the car appears as a four-door model and as a two-door model.
Continuity mistake: In the scenes before and after Grant (travelling as Nash) joins Bond (travelling as Somerset) on the train, there are several insert shots showing the train from outside. Some show a Continental 2-8-0 locomotive with three headlights, towing black coaches with square windows and towing several vans. Some show a British 4-6-2 loco without headlights, and with British Railways legible on the tender; towing green coaches with rectangular windows. Oops. (01:20:00 - 01:30:00)
Continuity mistake: When we see the agent waiting for Bond at the Zagreb train station, he has a handkerchief in the pocket on the right-hand side of his suit coat. When he is talking to Bond on the train platform, the pocket is now on the left side.
Continuity mistake: When the train conductor takes Bond (as Mr Somerset) to the compartment where Kerim Bey and the Russian have been killed, you can see that Bond is standing in front of the door of the compartment when the camera is in the corridor. When the conductor opens the door to the compartment, Bond can be seen standing on the far side of the door and is not seen until right before he enters.
Continuity mistake: When Bond says "Tell our host his hospitality overwhelms me," after the belly dance at the gypsy camp, Bond takes the handkerchief out of the pocket of his suit and starts wiping his hands with it. He is not wiping his hands in the next shot, but in the shot after that, he is.
Continuity mistake: When the man from Q branch shows the briefcase to Bond, he removes one of the ammunition sleeves from the case, opens it, slides a few rounds into his hand and then starts to return the rounds to the sleeve. Just before the cut to the throwing knife coming out of the case, Bond is still trying to put the rounds back into the sleeve, with the cap of the sleeve being held between his thumb and first finger of his right hand. At the cut, all the bullets have been replaced and the cap is back on the sleeve. When it cuts back to the wide scene, the cap is off again and Bond is now holding it in is left hand.
