Corrected entry: When Bond shoots Baron Samedi near the end of the film, he is to Samedi's right, but it is the left side of Samedi's head that explodes.
Corrected entry: The majority of the cars in this film are 1973 Chevrolet's.This is very evident when Bond is being driven to see Felix; nearly every car in the action shots on the highway is a full size Chevy. With a few exceptions, such as the Caddy's and the Pimpmobile in the beginning of the film, its seems most people bought a 1973 Chevrolet. Most of the destroyed police force in the Louisiana were Impalas, and the car chasing Bond when he is driving the bus is a 73 Nova sedan. In the airport scene there is one of each 1973 model - Nova, Malibu, Impala and a pickup. Chevrolet too-obviously paid for the product-placement advertising.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the United Nations where the speaker is making a presentation, I think he is speaking in Hungarian. As far as I know, Hungarian is not one of the official languages (French, Spanish, English, Russian, Chinese) used in the United Nations.
Corrected entry: After James steals the goons' speedboat, a black gunsel drives to a bridge to intercept him. When he arrives, a very large plume of black smoke, having nothing to do with the plot, can be seen in the distance. When JW Pepper arrives seconds later, the smoke is nowhere to be seen.
Corrected entry: The guy with the mechanical arm points at a bunch of alligators and identifies them as crocodiles.
Corrected entry: Leiter, who is observing Kananga, tells Bond that Kananga's leaving the UN, "probably heading back to his embassy". As an experienced CIA officer, Leiter should know that foreign nations maintain their embassies in this country in Washington, DC, not in New York City. They may have consulates elsewhere in the country, but not embassies. Countries do indeed send separate ambassadors to the UN, but they don't establish separate embassies for them.
Corrected entry: In the roadblock scene at Miller's Bridge where Bond and the villain have just got through the roadblock with their boats, Sheriff J.W. Pepper arrives at the bridge. A policeman says, "Yes sir, Captain. I understand. But I don't know where we're gonna find a boat fast enough to catch'em." During this scene at the bottom of the screen, you can see the yellow microphone recording the actor. (01:29:10)
Corrected entry: Kananga warns Solitaire about the price of losing her virginity, saying that he'd do to her what he did to her mother and her mother before her. Jane Seymour was 22 when the film was released. If we assume that the ages of their characters are supposed to be around their actual ages, and if we assume that Solitaire's mother conceived at 18, that would mean that her grandmother was being used by Kananga 40 years ago. Yaphet Kotto was 36 at the movie's release - even if we assume Kananga supposed to be older than Kotto's age, the math is off by at least 25-30 years, he must have been at least 20-25 to have amassed enough power and/or land to need someone like Solitaire to protect it.
Corrected entry: During the final fight on the train, the window is smashed. Following the death of the man with the prosthetic arm, Bond closes the window and the glass is intact.
Corrected entry: During the voodoo ceremony where the man is killed, the 'snake bite' that kills him leaves no marks on him.
