Goofs

When James has just been passed by the Mustang on the mountain road, and then he stops and looks at Goldfinger and Oddjob buying fruit from the children. As Bond stops and exits the car he is quite a distance from Goldfinger and there are 5 unbroken stone bollards visible. In the next shot Bond and the Aston Martin have suddenly moved much further down the mountain and the Bollards are different, some are closer together and the one nearest Bond is broken. See more »

One of the Goldfinger scenes shown (Bond visiting Q Branch) isn't actually in the movie. Additionally, a putt shown is from a different POV than actually used. See more »

24 carat Bond...even Pussy went down Well
26 November 2012 | by SpondonmanSee all my reviews

Almost sublime - this James Bond film had it all, from adventure to romance to thrills. It starts with a shocking electrocution and then into the classic saucy gold credits before the scene is set with Goldfinger himself.

Bond, played by dashing Sean Connery for the third time, has to find out what unpleasant gold-smuggling chap named Auric Goldfinger is up to and put a stop to it. He tracks him down first to Geneva then Kentucky in a sparkling sequence of adventures, occasionally involving bumping into Goldfinger's memorable Korean hatchet-man Oddjob with the odd hat. Favourite bits from so many: short-lived girlfriend Shirley Eaton going for gold; polished Bond being dismissive of the brandy at the Bank Of England much to M's pleb puzzlement; the debut of the special Aston Martin and Q's workshop; the narky golf match between Bond and Goldfinger; Bond's close but rather unnecessary laser shave at Goldfinger's HQ; his various encounters with feisty Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman); the gangster with the pressing engagement; and Shirley Bassey's title song was by miles the best Bond song ever.

The whole film is still a joy, maybe improbable and even ludicrous at times yet I watched it rapt all these years later. It portrays back to us a simpler world though we didn't know it at the time, a world I can sometimes relate to better than the beautiful perfect world we have now. You don't need cgi cartoonery, strong sex, extreme violence, so-called realism – or even a sensible story – if you've got the right mix of escapism and personality put together by people who enjoy what they're doing instead of only being in the middle of a franchise.
