Suggested correction: Goldfinger is still in the car - he has sat back in his seat and the camera angle makes it look like he's vanished. The picture shown shows Goldfinger leaning forward to talk to Bond, then he sits back when the conversation finishes.

In this instance it does not have to do with camera angle. When Goldfinger gets in the car and the door is left open, we can see the seat's upright back portion where he is sitting in relation to the rear side windows, and there is not much space between them. Goldfinger is a rather rotund fellow, so even when he leans back in the seat we should still be able see him when looking through the right side of that double window. In a medium shot Goldfinger says goodbye to Bond, then it cuts to semi-closeups of Bond and Oddjob, so when we're back to another medium shot of the car, the actor was simply not in the car during the filming of these specific takes, for this medium shot. Note, after Oddjob crushes the golfball, in the next medium shot as the car begins to drive away, all the people who had been standing on the fairway in the background in previous shots have vanished (no time for them to have walked away).

Carry on Spying mistake picture

Other mistake: When our heroes are on the conveyor belt in the rock-processing plant, none of the rocks are larger than two feet in size - especially having gone past a set of spinning saw blades - and yet they get sprayed by two steam nozzles, the highest of which is about six feet in the air, and the lowest is about four feet in the air. Clearly neither of these nozzles would have any practical use. (01:21:10)
