Revealing mistake: Every time the villains' deadly gas, "hydro," is mentioned, the word is badly and very obviously dubbed in, and doesn't match what the actors' lips are saying. This occurred because the original name used, "freon," turned out to be an existing (and patented) refrigerant gas, so the name had to be changed to avoid a trademark lawsuit.
Revealing mistake: Illya flies a helicopter to the Himalayas in search of Solo, and at the same time, Kingsley's men are loading an unconscious Solo into another copter. Not only do the two helicopters look suspiciously similar - they have the exact same registration number: N73959.

Revealing mistake: During the foot-chase through Tenza HQ, the Thrush gunman, with Illya in hot pursuit, races around a hallway corner. As Illya runs into the shot, the gunman's shadow reappears on the back wall, revealing the fact that the actor has stopped and is standing back there. Next shot, though, he's running down another corridor and through a door.
Revealing mistake: Miss Moonglow's lipstick supposedly glows in the dark. But when the lights go out, a badly superimposed special effect causes the glowing lips to remain completely stationary, even when she doesn't. Her head moves, but weirdly, the lips don't.
Revealing mistake: The ship is supposedly pitching heavily in stormy seas. But because the tilting effect is merely the camera moving, the whiskey bottle, glass and other items on Captain Morton's desk don't slide or fall off. In fact, they don't move at all.
Revealing mistake: Thrush's android army is composed of dozens of identical robot women. The first 6 we see (from behind) do have identical heights, shapes, clothes and wigs. But we then see shots of girls with varying shapes and hair lengths, capped by a far-too-close angle on their obvious (and very bad) rubber masks.

Revealing mistake: When Solo and Illya, posing as maintenance workers on the London street, are opening the manhole to go underground, two cars - a blue VW hatchback and a white roadster - pass them twice going in opposite directions each time. And while most of the cars are driving appropriately on the left, one pulls up behind them driving on the right (which is to say, wrong) side of the road.
Revealing mistake: When Napoleon Solo arrives at the train station, both the name of the newspaper the man in black is holding, and the name on the station sign are backwards. Additionally, as he arrives by train the man in black is on the left side of the shot. After exiting the train, the man in black appears from the right side of the shot.
Revealing mistake: When Napoleon and Illya are on the flight to Austria, Illya receives a call from Mr. Waverly on his communicator. Instead of the pen nib, the gold microphone cap is visibly already in place; Illya takes it out and pretends to turn it over before replacing it.
