Continuity mistake: When Solo begins trying to seduce the dancing girl with the line, "We shall taste paradise," he's standing at least a foot away from her. But in the very next shot, they're suddenly in a clinch: her hands are on his cheeks and they're about to kiss.
Continuity mistake: At the end, Solo and Illya are sitting at a small bistro table as the captured bad guys are marched past them. Solo wears a green fez, and between shots, Illya suddenly acquires a red one. It wasn't in his hands or on the table before that: it just seems to appear on his head out of nowhere.
Continuity mistake: Delgado's plane makes a bumpy landing (without a runway) and skids to a stop in the Brazilian jungle, surrounded by palm trees. But when everyone gets off, the plane is suddenly parked in the midst of an industrial compound with buildings all around it, and no palm trees in sight.
Continuity mistake: In close-up, Illya is covering the phone receiver with his left hand, but drops the hand to his side when he tells the operator, "Never mind." There's an immediate cut to a wider angle, and his left hand is suddenly back on the receiver in the same position as before.
Continuity mistake: Pendleton swallows a suicide capsule and collapses at the interrogation table face down between two file folders. But when the shot cuts to a different angle, his head has instantly moved several inches to the right and is resting in the middle of one of the folders instead of in between them.
Continuity mistake: Vogler paints a target on Illya's shirt back and hunts him. The target remains constant through most of the chase, until a stunt double is brought in for a fight sequence. The double's target has a large "bite" taken out of the bull's eye. The bite goes away after the fight, and Illya's target is whole again.
Continuity mistake: The whipped cream covering Salty's arm and hand, as she holds the mini explosive pulled from the dessert, is very thick in the first shot of her, much thinner in the next, thicker again in the next, and almost completely gone in the last shot.

Continuity mistake: When Solo and Miss Pogue are trapped in the shipping crate together, his hair combs itself between takes - several times. It's all over his forehead, then is suddenly neatly combed to one side, then is messy again. When the crate is opened, he's well-groomed once more.
Continuity mistake: Jojo shoots Illya, who falls into a pile of garbage cans, overturning a large cardboard box full of paper. When the camera angle changes, the box has not only moved a few feet to one side all by itself, it has also set itself upright again.
Continuity mistake: At the end of Part 1, Sir Norman enters the rejuvenation device and immediately gets younger. As Part 2 begins, however, he emerges from the machine looking the same, and Dr. Gritsky says that his rejuvenation will occur gradually over the next few days.
Continuity mistake: Solo sneaks down an empty corridor and knocks out the only man guarding the lab door. When the camera angle reverses, there's a second unconscious (or dead) man on the floor behind him. Where'd that guy come from? Solo didn't encounter anyone before the door guard, and there were no bodies already on the floor when he entered the hall.
Continuity mistake: When Solo is escorting Narcissus downstairs, they go through a door that's hinged on the right and opens inward into the stairwell. Cut to them entering, and the door is now hinged on the opposite side and has opened outward into the hall.
Continuity mistake: When Napoleon, suffering from amnesia, finds his U.N.C.L.E. ID card in his jacket pocket, he opens it with one hand, with his other hand on the jacket's coat hanger. In the close-up of the ID card, he's holding it with both hands, then in the following wide shot, he's holding it with one hand again. The wallet also opens horizontally, then vertically, then horizontally again.
Continuity mistake: When Illya talks with Carl Voegler in the woods, Voegler rests his bow on the ground, gripping it with his right hand and his left arm resting on top. In the next shot, he's gripping the bow with his left hand and his right hand is instantly down by his side.
Continuity mistake: When Napoleon is chained to the table in the train room at the Thrush school, the shackle on the table moves from the bottom of the table closest to Napoleon to the top near the train switches, then back to the bottom near Napoleon.
