Dry as ice, dripping with deadpan witticisms, only Sean Connery's Bond would dare disparage the Beatles, that other 1964 phenomenon. No one but Connery can believably seduce women so effortlessly, kill with almost as much ease, and then pull another bottle of Dom Perignon '53 out of the fridge. Goldfinger contains many of the most memorable scenes in the Bond series: gorgeous Shirley Eaton (as Jill Masterson) coated in gold paint by evil Auric Goldfinger and deposited in Bond's bed; silent Oddjob, flipping a razor-sharp derby like a Frisbee to sever heads; our hero spread-eagle on a table while a laser beam moves threateningly toward his crotch. Honor Blackman's Pussy Galore is the prototype for the series' rash of man-hating supermodels. And Desmond Llewelyn reprises his role as Q, giving Bond what is still his most impressive car, a snazzy little number that fires off smoke screens, punctures the tires of vehicles on the chase, and boasts a handy ejector seat. Goldfinger's two climaxes, inside Fort Knox and aboard a private plane, have to be seen to be believed. --Raphael Shargel --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Harold Sakata is the most hated villain in any Bond picture, the maquiavelian mind and overwhelming presence of Auric Goldfinger , the unforgettable swiss landscapes , the girls Honor Blackman who is two steps behind of Daniela Bianchi (From Russia with love) and Claudine Auger (Thunderball) in what beauty concerns , the laser sequence , the poker game , the fine and suggestive dialogues , the ambush in the hall , the battle in Fort Knox and that hair raising final combat in the airplane, the dazzling direction of Guy Hamilton and the spectacular Aston Martin.
What else do you need for watching by the first time this one or remind it in case you saw before as a timeless cult movie ?
And please beware of any other hat in the head of someone like Odd Job.
probibly shows the best sexual tension moments that have ever been scene in the whole franchise.
With the hillarious "shocking, truly shocking" pre-title chapter, Shirley Bassey's powerfull voice starts the film proper screaming the now famous "Goldfinger" with the title credits and scenes projected on a near naked woman. The first of many.
Filled with the now famous scenes such as the Miami hotel room scene, Laser Saw, Fort Knox battle, and Odd Job's demonstrations of strength to name a few. The ultimate star of this epic has to be the Aston Martin DB9, a fighter plane on wheels. However, much to Q's anger, this car dosen't survive the movie in one piece, however it must have been rescued as it shows up in the next installment.
Using the USA as the focal point and ultimate storyline was a stroke of geneious for Broccoli and Sultzman. Americans just fell for it and with Guy Hamilton directing, they really got it right.
The DVD is absolutly full of documenties, Radio slots, pictures and all kinds of paraphenallia.
Sean Connery incarnates the truly hip(rather than hippie)super cool--shaken not stirred--super hero.Instead of cape and "faster than a speeding bullet",he wears custom tailored Saville Row(now Brioni)suits; and makes the scene in the world famous "Q" super-stocked Aston Martin DB5 @ 145.2 mph/0-60 in 007.1 seconds! Gert Frobe and Main Man Odd Job(Harold Sakata)are worthy opponents. But neither they; an atomic bomb;nor initial recalcitrance of closet lesbian Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman;an original pre-Mrs.Peel, AVENGER)can stop BOND,JAMES BOND as he saves the Western world from economic chaos to Wagnerian phrases of Sir John Barry's rife-with-danger soundtrack. GOLDFINGER is the first Bond epic. Much of it is archly funny--but none...as "Q" reminds the typically insolent MI6 Super Spy...is a JOKE!. Seminally original sight-gags [Solo's ride to literally "pressing engagement"; Odd Job's,Olympic-class frisbee action with his steel-rimmed bowler hat;and THE GOLDEN GIRL herself,Shirley Eaton]are marvelous. Opening teaser--where Bond sees a would-be assassin reflected in Golden Eye reflection of a treacherous paramour--is SHOCKING;positively Shocking!
One draw-back to this dazzling,classy entertainment is,perhaps,its relative brevity: 100 minutes...Read more ›
The plot to Goldfinger is simple enough. Auric Goldfinger has one of the largest collections of gold in the world. He has a plan to contaminate the gold the in Ft. Knox making his own gold more valuable and thus hurting the USA because at the time we still backed all our cash with gold. MI6 James Bond is on the case and with help from a bunch of notable characters it's up to him to stop Goldfingers evil plan.This might not be the best description of the plot ever but it's short sweet and accurate.
Sean Connery gives his best performnce as 007 in this movie. He carries a swagger in Goldfinger that you just absolutely love. No other guy to play Bond really has achieved that. He really turned himself into a house hold name with this performance and he's just awesome. His performance alone is worth the movie.
Auric Goldfinger is an awesome bad guy. Most Bond movies are as good as the bad guys in them and Goldfinger is one of the best ever. Gert Frobe puts a face to the Bond bad guys. Up to this point in the Bond franchise the bad guys hadn't been all that great. Robert Shaw was alright in From Russia with Love but he was stiff and the character was dull. The same thing can be said about Joseph Wiseman who played Dr. No. Gert just took this role and ran with it. He's easily the best bad guy ever in a Bond film. Like Connery you can buy this movie for Gert Frobe's performance as Goldfinger. It's well worth the price.
This was the first Bond movie to put a Bond car on the map. The Aston Martin Db5 is excellent in this movie.Read more ›
