On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Factual error: Of all the characters, major and minor, who ever speak German in Switzerland, not one speaks Swiss German. The accents are very different (Swiss German can be almost incomprehensible to speakers of High German), and there's also different vocabulary. While some of the characters might just be non-Swiss speakers of German, at least the underlings at Piz Gloria should be speaking Schwyzerdeutsch.

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.

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?)
