Moonraker (1979)

Factual error: When Jaws jumps from one cable car to the other there is no way he could have leapt the distance he does considering the way he hops off the first cable car.

Moonraker (1979)

Continuity mistake: Drax's henchman Chang's name changes to Chi during the film. (The DVD subtitles also call him Chang while the actors call him Chi).

Moonraker (1979)

Continuity mistake: Bond and Holly are in a room when the ceiling opens up to show them beneath the rockets of Moonraker 5. The next shot shows one of the rockets to be below the level of the ceiling. (01:24:25)

Continuity mistake: When Johnny Alucard stumbles into the bathroom you can see that the bath hasn't got its plug in, yet when he falls into it and turns the shower on it rapidly fills up with water and drowns him.

Dr. No (1962)

Continuity mistake: When Bond gets directions to Miss Taro's house, her instructions to Bond conclude with "Follow the road up the hill, down the other side, and two miles further on, on the left Magenta Drive, 2391," but when Bond is in her house later on, while calling for a taxi, the house number changes and he gives it as "2171 Magenta Drive". Miss Taro even nods to confirm it. (00:47:30 - 00:51:20)

Dr. No (1962)

Plot hole: When Bond, Quarrel and Felix sail to Crab Key, Felix says that it's 48 hours to the moonshot. Bond replies that they'll "Be back in 12, if not then it's your beat and you'd better bring your marines with you". We know that Bond was still on the island when the rocket took off (it's when he kills Dr. No) and yet it's only when He and Honey are sailing AWAY from the island that Felix shows up with the marines. Why did he wait the full 48 hours (longer even as the moonshot had already occurred) when it was obvious something was wrong when Bond hadn't come back after the 12 or so hours as agreed? (00:57:45 - 01:43:40)

Live and Let Die mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Watch the way the bloke at the beginning is holding the snake. Every time the camera shows him from behind he has one hand by its head, yet each time the angle changes to the front his hand is halfway down the snake's body.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when George and Weena are collecting wood for a fire outside the Morlock's entrance George throws a pile of sticks to where Weena is sitting. One of these lands precisely between her legs, in the next shot the stick has gone.
