1965 - Thunderball

1965 - Thunderball
Super-agent James Bond is hot on the trail of two warheads stolen by the SPECTRE organization. While he closes in on the notorious Emilio Largo in the Bahamas, he soon finds that the beautiful Domino may be an unlikely ally. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching 1965’s “Thunderball”.

∙ When James leaves Moneypenny’s office after making the “someone’s lost their dog” commet, the light switch to the right of the door is a plain white. A few moments later, when he leaves after talking to M and Moneypenny again, the light switch is now a metallic color.

∙ Bond meets Domino under water. She’s wearing blue flippers while he’s wearing black one. She’s still wearing the flippers when she swims to the rear of the boat but they’re gone when she pulls herself on the steps. When James says “you soon will be” and swims away from the boat, his flippers are gone. But in the next wider view of him in the water, they’re back on his feet.

∙ Felix is waiting in the helicopter while 007 is underwater investigating the hidden plane. As James resurfaces, the close-up of Felix shows him sitting in the front pilot’s seat and wearing shorts. The scene cuts to a farther view when Bond breaks through the surface of the water and Felix is sitting in the rear seat and wearing dark pants. In the next close-up of them, as Felix helps Bond aboard, he’s now wearing shorts again.

∙ In the side view of Bond and Domino talking on the beach, she comments “understand” and her hands aren’t touching his shoulders. It cuts to a rear view of James (front of Domino) and her hands are on both of his shoulders.

∙ Toward the end of the movie, James is fighting Largo and he hits the officer in the white hat. The white hat is knocked off the man’s head but in the next view of him, it’s back on.

“Thunderball” (1965) stars Sean Connery, Claudine Auger, Adolfo Celi, Luciana Paluzzi and Rik Van Nutter. It runs 130 minutes and is rated PG for action/intense scenes, adult situations and violence.
