Stupidity: Oddjob brings the crushed cube of the Lincoln back to the stud farm so that Goldfinger can "separate my gold from the late Mr Solo." Oddjob could have simply removed the gold from the trunk of the Lincoln before having it crushed.
Directed by: Guy Hamilton
Starring: Sean Connery, Desmond Llewelyn, Bernard Lee, Lois Maxwell, Shirley Eaton, Honor Blackman, Gert Fröbe
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.
James Bond: A martini. Shaken, not stirred.
Trivia: Goldfinger's first name is Auric. Au is the chemical symbol for gold on the table of elements.
Question: Q demonstrated the switches for the left and right front-wing machine guns - why is the "right" control on the left and vise versa?

Chosen answer: They're not. Q was just indicating to Bond that these were the wing machine guns, he wasn't stating which was which.
