Now almost taken for granted, this initial adaptation of Ian Flemingâs spy novels was a subversive breath of fresh air, depicting for the first time a secret agent who was an unapologetically suave, promiscuous - not to mention homicidal hero. Sean Connery proved amazingly popular as the ultimate sexy beast, James Bond, ushering in the entire 1960s spy-film craze. One of the best of the Bond films, with its Caribbean locale, Ursula Andressâ sensual presence as the feral nature girl and Joseph Wiseman as the evil mastermind with black metal hands.
1964, MGM/Park Circus, 111 min, Dir: Guy Hamilton
"Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?" "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die," cackles homicidal villain Auric Goldfinger (Gert Frobe) as he prepares to re-arrange 007âs secret equipment with a laser beam, in what is widely considered to be the best of the classic Sean Connery Bond pictures and a high point in 1960s pop culture. Co-starring the saucy Honor Blackman as Bondâs nemesis-turned-partner Pussy Galore.
