Audio problem: When Krilencu kills a guard with a knife at the gypsy camp, he then says "Quick!" but his lips don't move.
Revealing mistake: When Bond and Kerim are sailing in the underground reservoir, just before they arrive at the Russian Consulate, there is a closeup of the oar moving through the water. At the bottom of the screen there is a white object moving through the water. It is not clear what it is, but it is not there in any of the other shots of the boat - neither before nor after. It could be the leg of a crew member pushing the boat.Jacob La Cour
Factual error: When the train arrives in Belgrade the clock on the station shows 6.32. It is dark! That is not only 32 minures since the location where Bond was suppoesd to get off the train, where it was bright daylight. Furthermore it is shown that the train passes through Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. That will take more than 32 minutes. However it must be evening and not morning, because it continues to be dark in the next clips where the train drives to Zagreb.Jacob La Cour
Factual error: When the train passes the road crossing where it should have stopped - at 6pm - it is very bright daylight, and the sun is high in the sky (which can be seen from the shadows, among others those cast by the car on the road). The sun is never so high at 6pm in western Turkey/eastern Greece. That scene has been shot earlier in the day.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: In the close-up where we see Krinelcu get shot, he is resting his legs on a flat surface just below our view. That is clear on the position of his legs and the movements of his body. He is kneeling on a floor. But in the clips we have seen of the house it is clear that the poster is painted on a completely flat building. There is no ledge for him to be resting on. Also in the shot where he falls from the lighted opening, no ledge is visible.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: During the helicopter sequence towards the end of the film, we see a view from the pilot's seat in the helicopter and Bond can be seen running directly below it. In the next shot, however, Bond is nowhere near the helicopter.
Continuity mistake: During the boat chase scene, Morzeny is first seen riding in a boat with a small wooden mast arising from the middle of the windshield (similar to Bond's boat). The mast is present in most shots, but at one point, when he tells the boat "SPECTRE 3" to move over so his boat can come through, the mast is gone, replaced by a small antenna.
Continuity mistake: In the scenes in which Tatiana is in the back of the flower truck and aboard the boat she is wearing a light blue top and gold skirt. Yet in the shot in which she moistens her finger and holds it up to the wind she is also wearing a vest that matches the skirt. But, the only luggage they brought on board from the truck are Bond's attache case and the Lektor.
Continuity mistake: Q demonstrates to Bond how to properly rotate the latches on his briefcase to arm or disarm the exploding tin of talcum held inside. Q then asks Bond to open and close the latches, to be sure he knows how to do it. Bond closes the first latch without any trouble, but the second latch will not engage, and Sean Connery does his best to 'keep the scene alive' by ignoring the recalcitrant latch and tries to obscure the faulty mechanisim by casually placing his hand over the latch. As Bond turns to leave M's office with the briefcase, the latch is still open, yet as Bond reaches the doorway the scene cuts to the opposite view of the door and the latch is now securely closed.
Continuity mistake: When Bond tells Sylvia that he has to make a phone call, Sylvia passes Bond his shirt and he walks over to the car. Bond then picks up the phone in the car and starts to put his shirt on. After a quick cut to Miss Moneypenny, we then return to Bond and he has now managed to put his shirt completely on and buttoned, one-handed, in the space of just five seconds.
