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.
Other mistake: When Bond returns to his room and places the rifle kit back in his briefcase, he fails to deactivate the booby trap before opening the case, but nothing happens.
Continuity mistake: On the train Bond gives Tatiana a powder blue negligée, the upper portion is lace. She puts it on and they snuggle a bit, then Bond is called out by Kerim about something. Bond returns a few minutes later and she has on a totally different negligée that has no lace on it but is still powder blue.DeeAnn
Continuity mistake: Just before Kerim Bey overturns the table in the beginning, at the Gypsy camp fight, two bottles are visible on the table. When he overturns the table, there's only one left. (00:42:50)
Factual error: When Bond arrives in Istanbul, the opening shot for the scene shows him arriving on the American-based Pan Am flight. Pan Am, or any American-based airliner, would most likely not have a flight going from London, UK to Istanbul, Turkey. Bond would have been most likely taking either a British-based airliner or a Turkish-based airliner. This error is more or less heavy handed product placement that wouldn't really happen in the real world, unless Bond flew from London to New York to Istanbul and that certainly would never be approved by a British government agency for one of its employees.

Character mistake: In the scene at Kerim Bey's office, when the bomb goes off, we see a heavy desk topple over. Bey says he was saved because he was relaxing on the couch with a girl. But he wasn't at the desk before either. He was sitting in some sort of sofa arrangement in a different corner of the room. We don't even see the desk before the bomb goes off.Jacob La Cour
