Live and Let Die (1973) Bloopers
Bloopers are mistakes that happened in production of a film. Most of them you can notice just by watching the film. Here are the ones that happened when filming Live and Let Die (1973) (they are shown in order of occurrace):
- When Bond is demonstrating the magnet watch to M, he says "Pulling out this knob turns the watch into a strong magnetic field." But when he uses the watch to attract the compressed gas bullet at the end of the film, he rotates the dial.
- When Bond jumps his boat over Sheriff J. W. Pepper, he manages to make the approach sitting on the left side of the boat and the landing sitting on the right side.
- Bond and Quarrel Jr are preparing to land on San Monique to rescue Solitaire. It is obviously late at night: the sky is dark, and Felix Leiter pegs the time exactly, reminding Bond that the bombs Quarrel is going to plant are set to go off at midnight, giving Bond exactly 30 minutes. But when Bond and Quarrel get to the shore, it is quite suddenly the middle of the day. One can see the light coming through the trees, and if one looks at the ocean beyond Quarrel, the water is a deep blue and there is clearly a bright sunshine out. Once Bond moves into the jungle, however, it is night again.
- After the explosions are set off and the real Baron Samedi comes up from the grave, there is a shot that shows Caribbean people. Behind them stands Dambala, who Bond had dispatched minutes earlier! (The same shot is showed earlier as the crowd is awaiting Baron Samedi who shall rise from his grave.)
- When Bond is fighting Tee Hee at the end, Bond cuts the strings to his artificial arm and he's stuck. Then Bond pulls the window down and throws Tee Hee out. However, you can see Tee Hee holding on with BOTH his real hands as he's tossed out. Easiest to see this if played in slow motion.
