Goldfinger

Audio problem: We know that all of Goldfinger (Gert Frobe)'s dialogue was dubbed by another actor. It was done quite well, except in the scene where Goldfinger is showing Mr. Ling around his factory. His lips are moving, but none of the dubbed dialogue matches it. (00:40:15)

Audio problem: Bond's tires squeal as he brakes hard on the gravel/dirt road during the car chase in the woods near the factory.

Suggested correction: Yep, happens all the time, depending on how firm the road is.

Audio problem: When Bond fights Oddjob in Fort Knox, he tries to hit Oddjob with a metal pole, but it ends up to wall, and Oddjob cuts it with his hand. The remaining piece of pole falls to floor and it sounds like the pole is made of styrox.

Audio problem: Whenever we're looking away from the bomb's countdown timer, it fails to advance as fast as it should, even though from time to time we do hear ticking at the same rate that the counter changes. For example, we see it tick from 010 to 009 and then hear 4 more ticks before it is stopped, but it then displays 007 and not 005.

Continuity mistake: The first time they show Johnny in the T-bird looking at the radar, you can see from the driver's window an orange 1958 Chevrolet pulling out into traffic. A few seconds later he is talking and you can see the same 1958 Chevrolet driving up to pull out in the street.

Question: Why did Goldfinger go through the hassle of telling the other gangsters his plan, only to kill them right after?

Answer: Goldfinger wants to keep the charade going up until the end so the others suspect nothing unusual. It is also a means of exposition to explain the plot to the audience.

Answer: I believe that Goldfinger is a showman / show off and wanted to boast for the pure hell of it. Also I think that he had to string them along so they wouldn't suspect he was about to do what he ultimately did to them.
