Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Nancy Kovack's character Barbara is shot twice before she can stab Helm, the sound is that of a suppressed gun. The gun Daliah Lavi fired had no suppressor (commonly called a silencer).

Continuity 

One of the guards is shot, and we see the exit wound on his back. But when he turns toward the camera, before falling, he shows that there is no corresponding entrance wound.

During the car chase, Gail Hendricks can be seen sitting much closer to Matt Helm in the shots inside the car compared to the shots from outside (behind) the car. Also the front seat is significantly different when seen from outside the car. It is a bench seat with headrests.

In the close-up shots of the Allied Van Lines truck, the secret viewing ports and upper turret that open up do not match the number or location of those seen in a subsequent medium shot of the same van.

Crew or equipment visible 

The line to the squibs under Kovack's shirt, running down her leg, can clearly be seen for a fraction of a second at the instant she is shot.

When Matt Helm slides off into the bathtub there are already several water stains visible on the sheets, including one where likely he was wearing a swimsuit, already wet from previous takes.

Optical Special Effects error from 91:02 to 91:08 regarding the Allied Van Lines truck, supposedly with a helicopter inside. Unfortunately when the helicopter appears to be mechanically raised upwards from inside the truck, the incorrect background behind the helicopter of the blue sky and the fluffy white clouds also is mechanically raised upwards from inside the truck. When the helicopter flies away, the actual landscape of rocky and sandy hills, is seen behind the Allied Van Lines truck.
