Shortly before Bond Fever was about to break in the United States and in the shadow of the release of "From Russia With Love" in April 1964, a short film report was used to tease audiences of the upcoming adventure "Goldfinger" whilst shooting was in progress over in the UK. Whilst the reporting style seems very dated almost 50 years on, the archive video contains some behind the scenes footage of Harold Sakata preparing for his role as Oddjob, as well as Sean Connery and Honor Blackman rehearsing their judo scene.
