James Bond: Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?
Goldfinger: No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!
The bomb is disarmed with 007 seconds left on the conveniently placed timer with big white numbers. Then, Bond says "Three more ticks and Mr. Goldfinger would've hit the jackpot." What? Well, originally, the timer would've stopped at 003, and the line would make sense, but later the powers that be decided to stop it at 007 instead for a good old Bond joke, and apparently never forgot to delete that line in editing. [The 3 clicks mistake is an interesting one as there are still in existence cuts of the film with the original 003 on the nuclear device timer. One contributor saw the 003 version in 1970 and was puzzled when the 007 version turned up on TV years later.] See more...
Tania Mallet had previously auditioned for the role of Tatiana Romanova in "From Russia with Love". She did not get the Russian role supposedly because of her provincial British accent. See more...

The entry you are changing the wording of is:
|Original entry||The girl dies from what is called skin suffocation. Skin suffocation is in reality a myth. [Technically, it's not. Toxins/bacteria, etc. can enter the body through the pores on the skin and be sufficient enough to cause death or serious injury. It's possible that this is what actually happened with the fabled gypsy dancer that this story refers to, and overtime, the "skin suffocation" term was coined.]|
