Corrected entry: In the beginning, James has a fight with a man and he throws him into a bath filled with water. Then James throws the electric fan into the bath, which electrocutes the man. Problem is: The electrocution should have killed the lights, or at least made them flicker, but they do nothing of these.kh1616
Corrected entry: When Bond looks at Tilly Mastersons attache case in the rear view mirror as he's driving along, the initials on the case are the right way round instead of being backwards which they would've been when seen in a mirror.
Corrected entry: After Goldfinger has been sucked out of the plane, and it is diving as Bond makes his way to the cockpit, there is a man lying on the floor in the cabin who was not previously in this scene. Where did he appear from, as the only people in the cabin were Bond and Goldfinger? This scene has obvously had something edited out.
Corrected entry: Although the gaffe of the crushed Lincoln Contintental demolishing the suspension of the Ford Falcon Ranchero (5,000 lbs. vs. an 800 lb. capacity cargo bed) seems to be pretty well known, there was another, very similar mistake made in the same film. In 1964, a troy ounce of gold was worth $36. If Mr. Solo got $1 million worth of gold bars in the back of the Lincoln Continental, he's got almost 2,000 lbs. worth in the trunk. The trunk can in reality only hold about 400 lbs.
Corrected entry: When the plane carrying Bond and Pussy Galore to the White House goes down, it crashes into the ocean. But the plane was going from Fort Knox, Kentucky to Washington D.C. The plane wouldn't have passed over the Atlantic Ocean or any of the Great Lakes en route to Washington D.C.poehitman
Corrected entry: In the scene where Goldfinger meets with the gangsters to explain in detail his plan for entering Fort Knox why does he go to the trouble of announcing his plan when he is going to kill the gangsters a few minutes later? It only serves to let Bond (and the audience) know what's going on, but makes no sense in the movie at all. The gas is fatal - he only tells them it knocks people out to win their confidence.
Corrected entry: Goldfinger's Grand Slam task force is able to penetrate Fort Knox after the Flying Circus has sprayed the military reservation and surrounding area with nerve gas. To fool Goldfinger and his people, the U.S. Army has instructed its soldiers to fall to the ground and pretend to be dead. That way, Goldfinger will be fooled into believing that the nerve gas attack was successful. While the Army might be able to get its personnel to fake death, how would they go about getting the cooperation of every civilian that lives and works in the area around Fort Knox? Also, since there are numerous horse and dairy farms around Fort Knox, wouldn't Goldfinger's task force expect to see dead horses, cows and other livestock scattered about as they make their way to the Gold Depository?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Tilly Masterson is running through the woods away from Bond and Auric's men, Oddjob throws his hat at her. It hits her in the neck and she simply falls over and dies. However, a few scenes before Oddjob throws his hat at the statue and cuts the head clean off. Shouldn't Tilly have been decapitated?
Corrected entry: At the congress between Goldfinger & the crime bosses, they all demand the payments owed to them, namely one million dollars each in gold bullion. Goldfinger then teases them by saying, "You can have one million today, or ten million tomorrow", which he explains to mean that, upon executing Operation Grand-Slam, the market value of circulating gold bullion will multiply by a factor of at least ten. But if that's the case, then why would the gangsters be motivated to wait for their parcels of gold? Its value will increase after the Fort Knox job regardless that they take possession today or tomorrow.
