* TargetAudience: Comes out a bit when Bond says "Like listening to the Beatles without the earmuffs on". At the time the film came out the Beatles were only a few years old, mostly known for cover songs and catered to a younger crowd than the older spy-thriller audience "Martini and black tie" crowd. The movie came out before "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", etc.

* BondVillainStupidity: Subverted. While Goldfinger does keep Bond alive, it's because he prefers keeping Bond under his thumb rather than MI-6 just sending another agent in Bond's place and wants to trick the good guys into thinking Bond is doing better than he actually is. In reality, had Bond not turned Pussy in the eleventh hour, Goldfinger almost certainly would have won. Goldfinger is also incredibly GenreSavvy for a Bond villain, opting not to underestimate Bond's craftiness.
** Goldfinger was also perfectly willing to just let Bond be cut in half by his laser, and it's only because he realizes he can't afford to risk the chance that Bond's bluff is not a bluff that Bond survives.

* SameLanguageDub: Gert Fröbe did not speak English, so he spoke phonetically and was dubbed over.

to:

* SameLanguageDub: Gert SameLanguageDub:
** All of Creator/GertFrobe's dialogue was dubbed by British actor Michael Collins, due to Fröbe's poor command of English. The looping was planned from the start, with
Fröbe did not instructed to speak English, so he spoke phonetically and was his lines quickly to make the process easier. Curiously, Fröbe's own voice can be heard in the movie's trailer, perhaps because the looped dialogue had not yet been recorded. Fröbe dubbed over.himself in the German version. ** Nikki Van der Zyl overdubbed Shirley Eaton's (Jill Masterson) voice, and Margaret Nolan's (Dink) voice.
