The Man with the Golden Gun

Plot hole: Scaramanga kills his boss Hai Fat in cold blood inside Hai Fat's massive estate in Thailand, but even after Hai Fat's attache runs inside and sees Hai Fat dead, murdered by Scaramanga, the attache and Hai Fat's security personnel in the heavily guarded complex permit Scaramanga to leave without being apprehended for the murder of their boss with Scaramanga glibly stating "Mr Fat has just resigned. I'm the new chairman of the board" as he walks out of the room untouched. (01:04:50 - 01:05:25)

Plot hole: When Bond and Scaramanga are dueling, Bond has no tie or jacket on. After Bond drops his gun and gives his hiding place away, he somehow has the time to not only crawl back onto the staging, but to move the wax replica of himself, and also to put on the dummy's jacket and necktie.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bond tries to get the golden bullet from the belly dancer named Saheeda, some angry gangsters enter her dressing room.

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.
