On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Audio problem: In the opening scene, Bond sees Tracy in the ocean and drives his Aston Martin onto the beach to rescue her. When he stops, we hear screeching tyres, but he is driving on sand.

Audio problem: In the scene where Bond and Tracy are in the car race on ice, Tracy is heard to say "James, how do we get out?" but her lips don't move at all in the accompanying close-up.

2

Audio problem: In the scene where Irma Bunt has seen the girls off in the village and starts chasing Bond and Tracy, tire screeching can be heard from her black Mercedes. As it is driving on snow, such a sound is not possible.

3

Audio problem: In the sequence of a party in Portugal, when Bond runs to Tracy to apologise after saying something unpleasant about her, he grabs her and starts talking with his back to the camera. His facial muscles don't move - the scene was later dubbed.

2

Audio problem: When Bond is talking to Draco at his house, Draco is telling Bond about his daughter Tracy. As he sits down on the sofa next to Bond, brushing cigarette ash off his suit jacket, he is clearly and rather badly dubbed. (00:24:40)

Audio problem: During the car chase with Tracy, after hooking up in Switzerland, she speaks while driving yet her mouth, while open, doesn't move.

Audio problem: When Bond is drowning the attacker on the beach, his head is submerged underwater, yet we can hear him grunting and moaning, as if his head was above water.

Revealing mistake: When Bond throws a Blofeld henchman off a cliff near Piz Gloria in the Alps you can see that it is a dummy as it's arm swings round and wraps around the whole dummy.

Trivia: In the scene where Draco is talking to Bond, in Draco's office, look closely at the picture in the portrait frame on the bookcase, in the background. The lady in the picture is Diana Rigg's mother. (Possibly an "in-joke" by the Bond production team?)
