Special agent 007 (Sean Connery) comes face to face with one of the most notorious villains of all time, and now he must outwit and outgun the powerful tycoon to prevent him from cashing in on a devious scheme to raid Fort Knox — and obliterate the world’s economy.
“Goldfinger” is a classic spy thriller featuring the dashing British gentleman spy James Bond, Agent 007. Bond works for the British Secret Service and is one of the elite “00” operatives with a “license to kill.” After breaking up a heroin smuggling ring, Bond crosses paths in Miami with a British millionaire, Auric Goldfinger, who is obsessed with gold and has hoarded away enormous quantities of it. Under cover, Bond eventually gets closer to Goldfinger and becomes part of his outrageous scheme to rob Fort Knox of its gold. Bond also learns the Goldfinger is a major financier of SMERSH, the Soviet secret spy ring. With the help of the US military, Bond foils Goldfinger’s plan, but he escapes. Later, Goldfinger kidnaps Bond and steals an airplane, intending to turn Bond over to SMERSH agents. Bond daringly forces the plane down over Canada, killing Goldfinger and most of his henchmen while surviving himself.
On his way back to England after breaking up a drug smuggling operation, James Bond becomes stranded in Miami when his flight is canceled. He becomes the guest of a wealthy American named Du Pont, who asks his help to catch a man who has been cheating him at cards. Bond agrees, and exposes the card cheat, who turns out to be Auric Goldfinger. Bond threatens to expose Goldfinger unless he pays back Du Pont all he has lost on the crooked games, and then leaves Miami with Goldfinger’s beautiful secretary, Jill Masterton. He tries to persuade Masterton to leave Goldfinger, but she returns to him after she and Bond share a long, romantic train ride to New York. Bond returns to England.
