Goofs

Among other errors involving Goldfinger's trucks supposedly being headed toward the bullion depository, they pass a feature known as the LST building, used in WWII for ventilation testing for ships to be used in a cross-channel invasion. The building is actually on the opposite side of the post from the gold vault. See more »

Bond's third is a charmer
7 September 2000 | by (PA USA) – See all my reviews

Sean Connery's third go around as James Bond has become the quisessential James Bond Flick and for good reason..from the catch opening chorus by Shirley Bassey and the intro pretty lady decked out in gold to oddjob's hat and the name of the bond girl Pussy Galore..What else could one ask for? The most popular and arguable the best Bond as James tries to stop Goldfinger and his pilot from robbing Fort Knox.. On a scale of one to ten... Goldfinger strikes a 9
