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)Paul Bessant
Continuity mistake: The hearse that was involved in Strangways death and later chases Bond is a 1937 or 1938 Lasalle,with the pod style headlights mounted on stalks on either side of the radiator. The car that drives off the cliff and explodes is a later model car, with the headlights mounted flush into the fenders.It is very easy to spot while the burning car is rolling down the side of the cliff.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is firing at the armoured car, trying to shoot the lights out, he begins with an FN Browning Model 1910 but then all of a sudden, it turns into a Colt M1911, a pistol about twice the Browning's size. (01:13:05)
Continuity mistake: When Bond is confronting Professor Dent one of his socks varies in height from clip to clip. (00:55:35)
Continuity mistake: When Bond goes to see a fisherman, to ask him about a man's death, the fisherman walks away, saying he knows nothing, and walks into a bar on the beach. He is talking to the barman and the bar has nothing on it, until a second later, when, suddenly, there is an open bottle of beer, a glass half-filled with beer and an ashtray.kh1616
