Live and Let Die

Continuity mistake: When the guy with the snake is shot Baron Samedi re-appears and you can distinctly see the bloke holding the snake again.

Continuity mistake: In the boat chase, when Bond comes to the shipyard, the goon can't find him. But there would be obvious foam/wake marks and waves after Bond's boat for several minutes.

Continuity mistake: Watch the way the bloke at the beginning is holding the snake. Every time the camera shows him from behind he has one hand by its head, yet each time the angle changes to the front his hand is halfway down the snake's body.

Continuity mistake: After Bond has finished ripping the wings off the Cessna and parks up, he speaks to the old female pilot, and in doing so, the camera shows that the wings behind her head are still intact, when they were already ripped off at this point.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is on the small isle in the crocodile pond, one of the crocodiles begins to climb the rock. Cut to Bond and then back at the crocodile who has now turned into an alligator. In the next shot it is once again a crocodile.

Continuity mistake: When TeeHee is destroying Bond's gun with his mechanical arm, you can see that the gun already has a crease on it even before it is bent.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is tied up with Solitaire and turns on his watch - only the gas bullet comes flying. But that could not be the only loose metal object in the room. Kananga's blade for example. And even if he held on to it he would feel the magnet pulling it.

Continuity mistake: When approaching Solitaire, the voodoo priest's grip on the snake changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Kanaga falls into the shark pool, they fall apart from each other. However, when we see them from under water, they are holding onto each other.

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene when several men in boats are chasing Bond in a boat, one of the bad guys steals a black speedboat from the Sheriff's brother-in-law. The bottom of the black speedboat collects white scuff marks as the chase continues, but the scuffs increase and decrease erratically, indicating that the sequences were not shot in the order we see in the film.

Continuity mistake: After Bond is picked up by the taxi at the airport in New York, Whisper in the "white pimpmobile", as Felix Leiter puts it, shoots the taxi driver in the head. The car then swerves from the second-left lane on the road to the very left lane. But in the next shot of Bond's head you can see through the rear window that there is a car on the left side of the taxi, indicating that the car is still in the second-left lane. In the next shot the taxi is back in the very left lane.

Continuity mistake: In the opening, in some shots the snake is straight whilst in others it is curled back in and under itself.

Continuity mistake: After Bond has killed the snake with the aerosol can in his hotel bathroom, he puts down the cigar he is smoking next to the sink. When he hears the door opening, he walks into the bedroom and the cigar is back in his mouth again.

Continuity mistake: When Bond and Solitaire are on the lift where they were put by Mr. Big, look carefully at Bond's watch. The face is concave with the crystal over it. When he uses the cutting function, the whole face is now rounded like a dome.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When the first British MI6 agent (Dawes) is killed by killer waves sent through his earphones at the United Nations, he has his fingers closed when the waves go through, but the next shot shows him with his fingers wide apart.

Continuity mistake: When Tee Hee is about to bend the barrel of Bond's Walther PPK, he has his index finger on the trigger guard of the gun, but the next shot shows him holding the gun with all his fingers around the handle.

Continuity mistake: When predicting Bond's arrival the card with the ship moves between shots in relation to the orange card with the man.
