Torres uses wireless remote control to control his lethal rockets. While this is one of those fun anachronisms of the series, it is interesting to note that while wireless remote control was a capability in the 1960s, it wasn't widely used. Outside of radio controlled toys and novelties, wireless mechanical control isn't even widely used today. Hardwired and not wireless electromechanical controls remain the most common and economical technology to mechanically control devices. See more
The burn rate of the fuses together with their length and distance from the rockets is such that it would be impossible for Torres and West to have such a lengthy conversation without the rockets igniting. As a result, the same footage of the burning fuses is looped over and over again between shots - the fuses never ending up any closer to the rockets during their conversation. Later when West is psyching out the henchman left to guard him, new footage of the fuses is inserted. Now the fuses can be seen clearly reaching the rockets, but they do not ignite because that footage is looped a few times until the henchman flees the room and West makes his move. See more
