Did You Know?
- First appearance of a laser beam in a movie. In the original script, the scene had a spinning buzzsaw (as in the novel) until it was decided that such an image had become commonplace and unoriginal.
- When Goldfinger confronts Bond in the plane near the end of film, a crew member is briefly seen when Goldfinger initially steps from behind the curtain. You can then see the curtain is open behind Goldfinger, but moments later it is closed. About 30 seconds later, when Goldfinger says he will take care of Pussy, you can see that same film crew member again, his left arm is sticking out from behind the curtain. After the explosive decompression, the crew member can be seen lying on the floor, either unconscious or dead. We could assume that he ended up that way because of the explosive decompression, though it doesn't explain why he doesn't help Goldfinger when he fights Bond.

Atom User Reviews
Of all the Bonds, Goldfinger is the best, and can stand as a surrogate for the others. If it is not a great film, it is a great entertainment, and contains all the elements of the Bond formula that would work again and again.
Goldfinger is studded with moments that have since become deeply embedded in the Bond mythos. John Barry's opening song (sung by Shirley Bassey) is among the series' best. Snippets of dialogue have attained an almost-legendary status, such as the exchange when Goldfinger is about to emasculate 007 with a laser. Do you expect me to talk? asks Bond. The response is succinct: No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!
Larger than life, faintly ridiculous, completely cool, Goldfinger is the quintessential James Bond movie.
