A fake Fabergé egg and a fellow agent's death lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. forces.
Bond is back and his next mission takes him to Fort Knox, where Auric Goldfinger and his henchman are planning to raid Fort Knox and obliterate the world economy. To save the world once again, Bond will need to become friends with Goldfinger, dodge killer hats and avoid Goldfinger's personal pilot, the sexy Pussy Galore. She might not have feelings for Bond, but will 007 help her change her mind? Written by
After attending the premiere in Rome, Federico Fellini was asked by a journalist what he thought of the film. His enthusiastic answer was "Questi sono i film che fanno andare avanti il cinema!" ("This is one of those films that make cinema move forward!") See more »
Multiple errors in the drive supposedly to take the gangster to the airport. Leiters radar screen shows the Lincoln turning onto St. Andrews Church Rd. from Dixie Highway which was a 2 lane rural road, not the 6 lane commercial highway shown during driving scenes. A sign displays "International Airport" on an overpass, which the actual road was nowhere near any airport. Standiford Field, where they were presumably heading, did not become an international airport for another 25 years. Leiter drives past Opa Locka Blvd. and a Royal Castle hamburger place (a deep South restaurant not in Kentucky) and the scene ends with the Lincoln crushed at "Atlantic Metal". All are obvious Florida references nowhere near Kentucky. See more »
Mr. Ramirez and his friends will be out of business.
At least they won't be using heroin flavored bananas to finance revolutions.

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
