Considered to be among the most entertaining of all the Bond films, it was also responsible for the first wave of "Bondmania" in the ‘60s. James Bond (Sean Connry) confronts an evil genius, Goldfinger (Gert Frobe), who plans to steal all the gold in Fort Knox. Goldfinger also has the disturbing habit of painting beautiful women gold.

Together they face the mysterious Columbo (Topol) who might be involved in more than just his international smuggling ring.
