In Goldfinger, the third James Bond adventure, the dangerously suave spy’s objective is to terminate criminal capitalist Auric Goldfinger (and his assistants Pussy Galore and Oddjob) and foil his plan to contaminate Fort Knox’s gold with atomic radiation, a strategy that would dramatically increase the value of Goldfinger’s own hoard.
With the help of the usual bevy of beautiful women and ingenious gadgets, 007 spoils Goldfinger’s fun. Based on Ian Fleming’s 1959 novel.
In 1965, Gert Frobe, who plays the chief villain caused an uproar by admitting past membership in the Nazi Party; he subsequently regained his popularity when a Holocaust survivor identified him as the man who hid him from the Nazis.
