Tenlist Presents: James Bond, Agent 00ps!

Some of the goodies - thanks to Movie Mistakes.com for the pix!

1. Diamonds are Forever - car goes into skinny alley on right tires, comes out on left tires.

2. Goldfinger - Bomb is stopped - counter shows 007. Bond says "Three more ticks and Mr. Goldfinger would have hit the jackpot." The insert shot showing the counter was added as an extra joke after Connery had shot his scene.

3. Thunderball - James Bond and Feliz Leiter are hunting for two stolen atomic bombs. In three successive connected shots as Bond dives around the helicopter, Feliz is first in shorts, then in long pants, then back in shorts.

I couldn't find a picture of the long pants, but here are the shorts.

4. Diamonds are Forever - During the moon buggy chase in the desert, as the moon buggy goes off camera, one of its wheels comes off and rolls back into camera range. Next shot, all four tires are fine as it moves on.



5. The World is Not Enough - During the boat chase at the beginning of the movie, 007 has an "over and under" torpedo system. He shoots both of them, and in two successive shots it's the top one that launches.

6. A View to a Kill - When Mayday pushes the Rolls Royce into the lake, the cable that is pulling the car in can plainly be seen.

7. The Man with the Golden Gun - During Bond's fight in the dancer's dressing room, her vanity is knocked about, and the mirror plainly shows the camera crew for a moment.

8. Tomorrow Never Dies - while showering together, Wai Lin decides to leave Bond stranded while she continues looking for the bad guy, so she handcuffs him to the plumbing and takes off. In a couple of the shots, it's obvious she failed to get the cuff clamped correctly as it hangs open on the pipe.

9. Thunderball - Bond loses his blue scuba mask in the big battle at the end. He absconds with a black one from one of the dead SPECTRE baddies. Moments later, in a couple of shots, he's wearing the blue one again, then the black one some more.

10. Moonraker - Drax pilot Corinne runs away from her soon to be former employer's large angry puppies -

Well, it just goes to show, nobody's perfect!

Til next time, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!

  1. And then there was OHMSS, where another actor accidentally walked on set and played Bond. Astoundingly, no one noticed until after the movie was in theaters. Next film, they were a bit more careful.

    Kidding, of course. I'm one of those odd ducks who liked Lazenby.
