Sex & Nudity

  • Bond slaps a woman's rear as she leaves the frame. This is accompanied by an exaggerated spanking sound effect.
  • Although tame for today's standards, the movie contained an exorbitant amount of sexual content for the early sixties. Most of the female characters wear tight and revealing clothing.
  • A woman is shown in a bathtub. Nothing is shown except her nude upper back.
  • Bond and a female character kiss while lying on a bed. Bond is shirt-less and the woman wearing a man's shirt, most likely.
  • After being knocked out himself, a man finds a woman dead. From a distance, we see her fully nude body laying face down on a bed, with only a carefully placed chair pillow blocking her buttocks from our view. Her legs and feet from the upper thigh downward, coated in gold paint.
  • Bond and a female character kiss while lying on a bed of straw.

Violence & Gore

  • Bond attacks a guard outside of his cell, struggling with him, disarming him of his gun, and kicking him in the head.
  • A woman is found suffocated on a bed in a hotel room, her body covered in gold paint. Although most merchandising and marketing material seems to depict the woman as slightly clothed and alive, she appears naked and dead.
  • A man is hit, knocking him out.
  • Characters are killed by poisonous gas, ejected out of cars.
  • A man with a metal-rimmed bowler hat throws it, striking a woman on her throat, breaking her neck. You can hear the snap as her neck breaks, but it sounds rather unrealistic.
  • Some men fall a short distance to their deaths. Not graphic.
  • A man is shown to be either trapped or crushed between a vault door and a metal railing. No graphic detail, and the image is brief.
  • A car crashes into a tree (mild, everyone in the car is fine afterwards). Another car crashes at high speed into a wall. The wall breaks , and the driver is okay afterwards.
  • Two men have a rough fight in a motel room on the beginning, and one of the attackers accidentally hits a woman in the room over the head. The two men crash around the room punching and kicking each other until one of them throws the other in a bathtub and throws a lamp into the tub, electrocuting him.
  • A man is shot at close range in a car (no graphic detail). He is then driven to a wrecking yard, where the car is crushed into a cube (the man's body is not seen after he is shot and there is no blood).
  • Many people are killed during the large final shootout.


  • One use of "hell" and one use of "damn."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Bond only smokes one cigarette in the opening scene. There's also one scene where M and another man smoke a cigar. Some background smoking in a bar and during a meeting of the American Mafia.
  • Bond orders a Vodka Martini shaken, not stirred and gets champagne out of a freezer.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Bond is threatened with being sliced in half by a laser. The scene is very suspenseful.
  • A woman is found dead, having been covered in gold paint.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Bond and Oddjob have a long fight near the end, and Bond repeatedly punches and hits him, and he tosses Bond around the room and brutally strikes him several times. The fight eventually ends when Bond touches a live electrical wire to a pole in that Oddjob grabs, electrocuting him
  • In one of the final scenes many people are shot inside a bank.
  • When Goldfinger's forces execute their plan on Fort Knox, spraying a deadly gas over the base, it appears all the soldiers are killed, instantly falling to the ground. Also, the scene of a car accident is shown having taken place presumably after the spraying, although no one is harmed. In reality, they are playing dead in order to lure the villains into a trap and once achieved, they all get up and attack the invaders.
  • A gunshot causes an explosive decompression on board an airplane and a person is blown out one of the windows

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Gas is sprayed over a soldier's camp and all the soldiers appear to die.
  • A man carries a metal rimmed hat that can break necks when thrown at people. The hat's function is introduced in a scene where he throws at a statue, completely decapitating it. This scene, among with the only other one during which the hat actually successfully kills someone, can be a little frightening or a bit striking.
  • Bond is tied to an atomic bomb with a timer, counting down. He manages to get free and tries to stop the bomb, before an American agent comes and stops the timer.
