Revealing mistake: At the end of the film, when James Bond pushes Tee Hee outside the train, you can see his real arm during one quick shot.

Revealing mistake: When Tee Hee and Bond are fighting in the train compartment, watch the right edge of the screen. In one of the shots the end of the set is visible as Bond shoves Tee Hee against the "wall", which wobbles. So much is revealed you can see the wooden framing.

Revealing mistake: As "Tee Hee" (the man with the claw) escorts Bond to the alligator pond at the farm, they at one point stand next to each other. You can see that Tee Hee's prosthetic arm is much longer than his real one- about as long as you might expect it to be, if the actor is really holding a prop with his actual (and perfectly good) hand.

Revealing mistake: When Madeline Smith (The Italian agent credited as Beautiful Girl) emerges from the wardrobe / closet, she embraces Roger Moore. He then uses his magnetic Rolex to pull down the zipper on the back of her dress. If you look closely, you can see the cable/wire under dress pulling the zipper down. (00:11:20 - 00:12:00)

Revealing mistake: The snake held up to kill the agent and later Solitaire is obviously not a real snake but a fake one. Look at how stiff it looks.

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.

Trivia: Demond Lewellyn, who played "Q", only failed to make an appearance in two of the first 19 Bond Movies. He wasn't in "Dr. No" ("Major Boothroyd" is introduced, however, played by Peter Burton), and this film, because of the stupid belief by the producers that Bond fans wanted fewer gadgets.

Question: Bond kills Kananga at the end by placing the bullet with the air pellet in his mouth which causes him to inflate and explode. But Bond had the bullet in his own mouth before when he was concealing it. Why didn't it kill him?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Bond just stored the bullet in his own mouth to hide it. As he puts it in Kananga's mouth he presumably pulls a pin, or forces Kananga to bite it.
