“Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?” “No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!” Bobbing up from under a stuffed seagull, a frogman strips to reveal an impeccably white dinner jacket – Sean Connery as James Bond, of course. Here, after Shirley Bassey belts the chart-bursting title tune, 007 squares off against Gert Frobe’s eponymous master criminal and his fiendish plot to corner the world’s gold reserves, with Fort Knox (Kentucky) the prize; while dodging torture by laser and that steel-belted hat from Japanese sidekick “Oddjob” – and not dodging Honor Blackman’s Pussy Galore or the tragically golden-hued Shirley Eaton.

Reviews

“Goldfinger allows nothing to impede its sense of humour: it converts Bond into a human equivalent of the cat in the Tom and Jerry cartoons, with the same ghastly resilience and the same capacity for absorbing punishment.”
– Penelope Houston, Sight & Sound
