Bondfest 2006: Goldfinger

Dan Bondfest 2006

Managed to squeeze in another Bond film prior to my evening plans tonight.

Goldfinger: One of my favorite Bond films. I love the opening, the way Connery so casually slips out of the black one-piece to reveal a white tuxedo beneath. And let’s be honest – seeing an assailant coming up on you from behind by noticing his reflection in a woman’s eye as you kiss her is just too damn cool. The one liners are great too, but there’s one exchange from the novel that didn’t make it to the film. As Bond is getting tortured by Goldfinger, he said “Then you can go and f–k yourself!”. To which Goldfinger replies, “Even I am not capable of that, Mr. Bond.” Love it!
