The Living Daylights

Factual error: Austria is famous for its mountains and ski resorts. But certain parts of Austria are quite flat. And the border region between Bratislava and Vienna is VERY flat. No chance to cross the border over a mountain with a ski resort like shown in the movie, unless you take a 600km detour with three more border crossings.

Factual error: In the "Soviet" base in Afghanistan, every equipment, from armoured carriers to light tanks, are of French manufactured. And the transport plane is American C-130 Hercules.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the bad guy falls to his death from the plane after the fight with Bond, in one shot you can see the plane is a two-engine one, not the four-engine Hercules it's supposed to be. According to the DVD commentary, the plane was used due to the high cost of using the Hercules.

Trivia: After Bond returns to London (when he's completed his mission in Eastern Europe) there's an 'establishing' shot of a London street scene. Look closely at the placards behind the newspaper vendor. One of the placards says "BLAZING JEEP AT 2,000 FEET" - a reference to the Jeep on fire and going over a cliff in the pre-title sequence perhaps?

Trivia: In his regular cameo role, producer Michael G Wilson appears in the audience at the Opera which Bond and Kara attend in Vienna. He can be seen sitting next-but-one to Saunders.

Trivia: The conductor of the orchestra at the end of the movie is James Bond music composer John Barry.

Question: What exactly happened to Koskov at the end? Pushkin said something like "Put him on a Plane in a diplomatic bag" but was he just being sarcastic or what?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: He says, "Put him on the first plane to Moscow...", making Koskov think he was going to live, but then Pushkin adds, "...in a diplomatic bag." He is being transported back to Russia in a bag...hence, he will be quite dead.

Question: When Pushkin wakes up after Bond pretends to kill him at the press conference, he apologises to his wife/girlfriend for putting her through the trauma. But since she was in the bathroom when Bond was there interrogating Pushkin (about Koskov etc.), wouldn't she have heard Bond and Pushkin discussing the staged assassination (after Pushkin says "Then I must die")?

Heather Benton

Chosen answer: She could have been let go off screen once it was clear that Bond wasn't going to kill Pushkin, so they could formulate the plan in secret.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: In the hotel scene where Timothy Dalton meets Pushkin, why does he rip the girl's dress off?

Chosen answer: Pushkin pushes a button on his watch to summon his bodyguard, but Bond sees him do it. He rips Ava's top off so the incoming guard will be "distracted" by her semi-nudity, allowing Bond to take him out.
