In the close-up, the man now has a white T-shirt with a blue print, and the girl has a white bikini and an orange skirt.

Continuity mistake: 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.]

Continuity mistake: You can see when the black Lincoln that Oddjob drives to the junkyard is lifted to be crushed, it has no engine or transmission.

Continuity mistake: When Bond is first put in the truck, it shows both of the larger trucks as 1964 Internationals, lead by a new Jeep CJ series with curved front fenders. In the next few shots, the Jeep becomes a 1950s version with flat front fenders, and the larger trucks are now darker green 1956 Fords. When they arrive at Fort Knox, the Jeep and trucks have changed back to the newer models.

Continuity mistake: After the game of golf between Goldfinger and Bond, Goldfinger gets Oddjob to show off his usually dangerous hat. He throws the hat at the statue and we see it fly off to the right of the screen, well away from the statue. Yet in the following shot, the decapitated head falls down next to the hat on the ground right by the statue.

Continuity mistake: In the first shots of the golf course, you see Goldfinger's Rolls parked to the far left of the main building, with Bond's car in the lot in the background. When the scene changes to the inside of the clubhouse store, the Rolls is now very close to the front of the store. At the end of the golf game the Rolls is back to the left of the main building and as the camera pans back you can see that the store is to the far right of the main building.

Continuity mistake: When entering Fort Knox we see the laser cutting from left to right across the metal door, which is subsequently pulled out. But when we see the door from the inside, it looks as if the laser has cut also both sides. There was no time for that - and we do not see the laser make such movements as going up or down.

Continuity mistake: When Oddjob drives into the junkyard, watch his shadow as he exits the car. Then look at the shadows while he drives off. Some hours have passed between the shootings, perhaps the missing hours are the ones it took for the engine to be removed from the car? (Check the other mistake from this scene).
