Live Twice Bloopers


1. While Bond Is Talking To Dikko Henderson, He Says That He's Never Been To Japan Before, But In "From Russia With Love" He Mentions To Monneypenny That He's Been To Tokyo. Excuse Me, But Does Bond Need A Geography Class? 2. While Aki And Bond Are Driving to The Kobe Docks, They Are Speaking To Tiger Who's Image Is On A View Screen In The Back Seat Of The Car. At One Point Aki Is Looking At The View Screen, And The Road Ahead Turns, But Aki Does Not. I'm Thinking That Maybe She's A Sunday Driver. 3. Bond Gets In On The Right Side Of Aki's Toyota 2000 GT, But In The Next Scene He Gets Out From The Left Side. (Blooper Noticed ByRoger Hediger) 4. How on earth can Blofeld see BOTH his own hi-jacked spacecraft AND the opposite space craft in a view from space with both of the object being monitored from OUTSIDE?!?!?!?! This happens all in monitors from the control-central. Did he send a extra camera-spacecraft up along with the other one?!?!? (Blooper Noticed ByCWestergard)
