The Man with the Golden Gun

Continuity mistake: When Scaramanga blows the Bond dummy's fingers, the first shot blows the middle and ring fingers, and the second shot the pinky. When the angle changes, the index finger has also disappeared.

Factual error: J.W. Pepper refers to himself as "Sheriff J.W. Pepper, Louisiana State Police." Sheriff is a local office while the state police are a state agency. A person can't be both.

Deliberate mistake: In the scene inside the belly dancer's dressing room, during the brawl Bond has with the KGB agents, he shoves the bald headed guy into the mirror along the bottom 1/3rd of the glass, yet the middle along the left hand side of the mirror makes it look as if that was the initial point of impact before it shatters.

Character mistake: In the scene where Scaramanga invites Bond for lunch, at the dinner table Scaramanga tells Bond he would like to with duel with him, Bond asks Scaramanga "My six shots to your one?" referring to his own Walther PPK and Scaramanga's Golden Gun. The Walther PPK can hold 7 rounds per magazine, plus one in the breech, and he has not used any rounds before that shot in the same scene, so he has 8 shots available, not 6.

James Bond: Miss Anders... I didn't recognize you with your clothes on.

Question: Does Nick Nack die? Did he suffocate in the suitcase?

Answer: Likely not. He's still screaming that he'll get Bond as the junk sails away at the end. Presumably, either he and Bond came to an arrangement after the film or Bond turned him over to the authorities. At the VERY end of the movie you see Nick Nack is actually suspended high on the mast of the junk.
