Continuity mistake: When Bond trades shots with Goldfinger's men, after the first part of the car chase at the factory, his PPK has turned into a Walther P38.
Directed by: Guy Hamilton
Starring: Sean Connery, Desmond Llewelyn, Bernard Lee, Lois Maxwell, Shirley Eaton, Honor Blackman, Gert Fröbe
Considered by some to be best of the James Bond movies, our hero is sent to spy on an eccentric millionaire who might be plotting to monopolize the world's gold supply.
James Bond: Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?
Goldfinger: No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!
Trivia: In the closing credits, the words "Tosh Togo" appear under Harold Sakata's name. This was Sakata's ring name when he was a professional wrestler from the early 1950s to the early 1960s.
Question: How did Bond know which room Goldfinger had at the hotel?
Answer: He deduced that Goldfinger was using a partner to spy on his opponent's hand, and to check his theory he went to the room with the best line of sight. Alternatively, he went (off-screen) to the desk and used his charm, which was utterly irresistible in the Bond films of the '60s, to find out where Goldfinger was staying.

Answer: Security and guest privacy was less of a concern in this era. Often someone could merely inquire at the desk which room a guest was staying in. Another ploy often used in movies was to leave a note for the guest and then watch which numbered mailbox the concierge placed it in.
