Corrected entry: When James Bond is trying to escape Goldfinger's henchmen, he is in Switzerland. When he wakes up he is in an airplane on the way to Baltimore, USA. That plane is a Lockheed Jetstar. Its range with extra fuel is about 5000km. The distance between Switzerland and Kentucky is about 7000km. The Jetstar would never make it to Kentucky.
Corrected entry: Bond's car has bullet proof windows, yet when he tries to escape from Oddjob and Goldfinger's men (after overhearing "Operation Grand Slam") the front windscreen not only has bullet marks but holes where it looks as if the bullets have gone through the glass. One of these lines up with Bond's forehead and a few of the other look as if they should have caused him some serious harm-but didn't.
Corrected entry: It was a long-standing rumor (due to sexist prejudices) that Pussy's flying circus members were actually disguised men.
Corrected entry: When Oddjob first demonstrates his lethal bowler hat by decapitating the statue; the statue's arm bends as the head falls on to it.
Corrected entry: In the famous scene with Bond strapped to the table being menaced by the laser, he manages to get his freedom by stating that if he doesn't call in with his office 008 will replace him, and 008 will know all that he knows, including about Operation: Grand Slam. Goldfinger promptly lets him go, saying Bond is more use to him alive. However, he then proceeds to keep Bond prisoner, and doesn't let him call in, which surely negates the effect he wanted by saving his life. Why not just kill him, if in MI6 terms he might as well be dead. He'll still be replaced.
Corrected entry: Shirley Eaton, who was painted from head to foot in gold paint for the famous shots, had to undergo 2 hours of make-up for the scene. During that time, she was closely monitored by medical experts, to avoid the epidermal asphyxiation - skin suffocation - that her character "Jill Masterson" died from. The idea was based on a real Swiss fashion model who painted herself and subsequently died.
Corrected entry: Oddjob shots the gangster in the back of the Lincoln and drives straight into the junkyard. When he gets out and walks away the car is dropped into the crusher. We can see that the back seat of the car is now empty.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Solo leaves for the airport, the bars of gold are loaded, unpackaged, and in the trunk of the car. Assuming he was flying commercially, was he going to check the bars of gold as luggage?
Corrected entry: When Goldfinger flips the pool table over to show the model of Fort Knox, Bond watches through a vent in the floor and sticks his head up in one of the model buildings and looks out. What? I thought there was a pool table on the other side of the model. It's impossible to think that the pool table on the other side vanished off of the face of the earth right after Goldfinger turned it over.
Corrected entry: When Bond is making Goldfinger lose money at the card game, how does he know how much to tell him to lose? The game might have been for only $100 and $15k would have been absurdly high, or it might have been for $100,000 and $15k would have been absurdly low. And why would Jill say, "I'm beginning to like you, Mr. Bond" with the mike still on and Goldfinger able to hear this, revealing her disloyalty?
Corrected entry: The Connery Bond needs help to defuse a nuke, the Moore Bond can defuse one on his own, And the Brosnan Bond can't defuse one at all.
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.
