Goldfinger (1964) Poster

(1964)

Alternate Versions

The English mono track on the Blu-ray fades the end credits version of the Goldfinger theme about 5 seconds early, around the same time as the picture goes to black. All other audio tracks keep the long version. As well, the Blu-ray includes a few restoration credits right after the fade to black, but these do not replace anything or alter the timing.
For many years, network TV prints of Goldfinger omitted the gunbarrel opening and prologue, jumping straight into the opening credits.
When Goldfinger was shown on the "ABC Bond Picture Show" the scene when Jill Masterson was in Bond's hotel room was altered with computers so that it appeared that Jill had a bra on as opposed to a bare back
West German theatrical version was edited for violence (ie. Goldfinger kills Mr. Ling, Oddjob gets electrocuted) to secure a "Not under 12" rating.
On the original UK release, the end credits indicated that Bond would return On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
As per a lot of the earlier Bond films, Goldfinger was cut in the UK before international release to secure an 'A' rating (children must be accompanied by an adult) to remove a shot of Bonita getting out of the bath and to shorten the bath electrocution and a bed scene between Bond & Jill Masterson. It was common in the 1960s for censor cuts to be made to the original negative of a film, so the BBFC-approved version is the same print used worldwide. An uncut version does not exist.
