Goldfinger/B+,B+

MGM-UA/1964/110 minutes

        The third Bond features a very good Gert Frobe as Auric Goldfinger, a man obsessed with his own name and some reasonable plotting to join Bond and the villains in fateful play. Connery continues  as 007 this time attempting to foil Goldfinger's master plot to rob Fort Knox. Along with the usual bevy of Bond beauties, Harold Sakata is an implacable Odd-Job. Honor Blackman is the unforgettably named Pussy Galore, and believe me, nobody can quite say Pussy like Connery.

Bond:Man of action.. MGM-UA

One of the most beautifully photographed Bond entries, Goldfinger  is still slightly grainy in the outdoor scenes. The DVD transfer is sharp and colors are rich and intense. Delivered anamorphic 1.85, the DVD preserves the maximum amount of detail. transfer The Goldfinger mono soundtrack is the crispest of the first three films. Detail comes slightly more alive.
