Thunderball

Audio problem: In the final chase, when Largo says 'Jettison cocoon,' his mouth does not match the words.

Jacob La Cour

Audio problem: When Bond is escaping from the Island after he finds the girl is dead he comes out of a basement/cellar and opens the hatch which visibly slams open hard, but silently. (01:15:20)

Sarmed Mirza

Audio problem: When Bond comes up from the basement under Palymra, the door swings open and drops by itself. It looks like it is a quite heavy steel door, but nevertheless it does not make a sound.

Jacob La Cour

Audio problem: The dialogue with Largo is completely unsynchronized when he returns to the Disco Volante for the final chase and battle scene.

Other mistake: When the Disco Volante separates to escape the cruisers firing on it, the "cocoon" is seen facing the pursuing ships stern first. When the shot changes to show the gunners firing on the ships the back half of the "cocoon" has turned completely around; the gunners are firing from the separated mid section of the Volante and the stern of the "cocoon" is now facing away from the cruisers, making it easy to see which parts of the scene were filmed live and which were done in the studio.

Trivia: If you noticed that almost all of the bad guys including the villain are all Italian, this is no coincidence. The original story involved the Mafia and the villain Emilio Largo as a Mafia chieftain. The story was changed to replace the Mafia with the organization SPECTRE.
