Trivia

According to "Goldfinger", in 1964 values, Fort Knox held fifteen billion dollars worth of gold. "In its vaults are fifteen billion dollars - the entire gold supply of the United States." If adjusted for inflation, that amount would be equivalent to almost 115 billion dollars, as of March 2016. However, since the price of gold has appreciated almost five times as much as the rate of inflation, that amount of gold would be worth about 520 billion dollars. See more »

Goofs

During the golf game after Goldfinger tees off on the 17th hole, the direction he and Bond are looking in makes it appear that he hit into the rough on the right side of the fairway. However when they are searching for the ball, they are obviously searching on the left side of the fairway. See more »

The Standard by which later Bond films will be judged....

A great piece of escapism that has held up well thru the years as a tightly paced film and a standard by which other Bond films are often judged by. There are so many great scenes in this film that tickle me every time, when Bond outsmarts Goldfinger on the golf course, the Pussy Galore flying circus scenes, the scenes where the Mob bosses are eventually snuffed out, the Lincoln crushing scene because it's so outrageous to have crushed a new car, and the scene where Goldfinger gets pulled thru the plane's broken window to his demise, and many others. The classic theme as sung by the still great Shirley Bassey is a "10"!!(I saw her perform recently in Atlantic City NJ and she is awesome!..only odd thing is she did every Bond theme she recorded except "Goldfinger"..not sure why.) I have always enjoyed this film upon repeat viewings thru the years and always looked forward to it's occasional showing on Sunday night on ABC network in the years before video players were a common household item. I have always wondered about one scene in the movie if it's a mistake or not....when Bond and Goldfinger are fighting in the Plane for the gun and the gun goes off, there is a long shot of Bond grabbing hold of one of the plane's seats as Goldfinger is flying toward the broken window..but I swear there is a person lying in the isle on the floor near Bond!?? If this is so, who is it supposed to be? A person who got knocked out when debris started flying? Is it the Asian hostess that spied on Bond when he was on board the last time? It's such a quick shot I swear my eyes are fooling me! I hope someone can answer my question!
