@SAFX yes, in color. Apparently there is an older black-and-white Twilight Zone episode on the same subject (see other answer).

+1 Nice! Thanks for this answer. I expect to accept this answer soon. And of the three explanations, I personally prefer the last one.

comment in Skyfall opening scene on train, does Bond fake getting shot?
Win, check the photo with the original question above. As I recall, that scene includes both shots of Bond directly and shots of Bond in the mirror. I also recall thinking that the wound seemed to change sides, but then realizing it was the mirror.
