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: 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)

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)

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)

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. (01:04:40 - 01:13:05)

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. (01:06:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When leaving the Gypsy's Bond gets into a white car as it drives off. When it does so, the stage light is reflected very nicely. (00:46:55)

Continuity mistake: At the Gypsy camp, Bond sits down and there is nothing in front of him on the table. We see the belly dancer arrive and suddenly there is a plate of food and Bond has got a drink in his hand. (00:38:20)

Suggested correction: The cut to the belly dancer is a jump ahead in time. There is no continuous action or sound between the shots and the food appearing shows time has passed.

Continuity mistake: When Klebb is meeting Grant for the first time she hands her bag over and it is clear that her hands are empty. However, once she's walked round him, the brass knuckles appear in her hands, ready for her to put them on and hit him. (00:13:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When we see the car leaving the airport as the man with a moustache walks out there is a very nice reflection of a crew member in the paintwork. (00:24:20)

Continuity mistake: When Bond asks Kerim to translate something to their host, Bond is looking at his hands. Cameras change angle and now he is looking at Kerim and the host. (00:40:40)
