An unfolded poster from before 1980 is almost always far more difficult to find than a folded poster of the same title. Directed by Guy Hamilton, from novel by IAN FLEMING - TAGLINE : James Bond is back in action! Everything he touches turns to excitement!
- PLOT SUMMARY : While investigating a gold magnate's smuggling, James Bond uncovers a plot to contaminate the Fort Knox gold reserve. James Bond (Sir Sean Connery) is back and his next mission takes him to Fort Knox, where Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe) and his henchman are planning to raid Fort Knox and obliterate the world economy.
To save the world once again, Bond will need to become friends with Goldfinger, dodge killer hats, and avoid Goldfinger's personal pilot, the sexy Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman). She might not have feelings for Bond, but will 007 help her change her mind? BEHIND THE SCENES TRIVIA : Though he had been considered for, but never appeared in a Bond movie, Sir Michael Caine was the first person to hear the completed score for this movie. After he and roommate Terence Stamp were ejected from their apartment, Caine asked friend John Barry if he could use the spare bedroom at Barry's London residence.As they were good friends, Barry agreed and so for several months, Caine crashed with Barry and was there the sleepless night he completed his iconic score. At breakfast the following morning, Barry played his composition for Caine, the first time he'd performed it for anybody. When Dame Shirley Bassey recorded the theme song, she was singing as the opening credits were running on a screen in front of her, so that she could match the vocals. When she hit her final high note, the titles kept running and she was forced to hold the note until she almost passed out. This echoes the experience of Tom Jones when recording the Thunderball (1965) theme. She has told the story that she only managed to hold the note after removing a restricting bustier she was wearing. The movie was the fastest grossing movie in movie history when it was released, and was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.
