Trivia

Warren Beatty was a late arrival, delayed by a previous commitment in Vancouver, Canada, where he had completed a Robert Altman film with Julie Christie. Beatty came to Hamburg from London, and the first order of business was the shearing of the beard he had grown for his role in this movie, McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971). Beatty also lost a mustache to the razor and he needed a new and shorter hairstyling. Ironically, both Christie and Beatty's co-star in $ (1971), Goldie Hawn, would all three later star in Shampoo (1975), a film related to hair and hairstyling. See more »

Dated
18 January 2013 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

This movie is sooo 1970! Take charge know-it-all Americans with long hair, James Bond style villains, lots of (for the time) hi tech gadgets, constant cigarettes, big busted bimbos in short skirts and car chases. Endless car chases! Interminable car chases! Impossible car chases! At my age I tend to regard 1971 as my era. Yet it was over 40 years ago and the movies of that time tended to reflect the James Bond culture. But any movie with lots of trains can't be all bad and much of this film is set on trains, in rail terminals and in rail freight yards. It's dated but that in itself can be interesting. Goldie Hawn with her goofy giggle is always a delight and the late Gert Frobe, although a good guy in this movie, will always be Auric Goldfinger to me.
