Added DiffLines:

* SameLanguageDub:
** For some reason, Shirley Eaton (Jill Masterson) was dubbed. She has one line in her real voice ("Not too early").
** Creator/GertFrobe's dialogue was dubbed due to his thick German accent.

* TalentDouble: Creator/GertFrobe couldn't play golf, so a double was required. Averted with Creator/SeanConnery, whose lifelong love of golf started with this film.

* BodyPaint: Jill Masterson
* BondOneLiner: "Shocking"; "As you said, he had a pressing engagement."; "Where is Goldfinger?" "Playing his golden harp"; "Where's your butler friend [Oddjob]?" "He blew a fuse."
* 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.

* ThrownFromTheZeppelin: Goldfinger's crushing response to a gangster's refusal to join him. A pressing engagement, indeed. (Not that the mobsters who ''were'' on board with Goldfinger fared any better.)

* {{Corpsing}}: During the scenes when the soldiers collapse at Fort Knox, in one scene a soldiers head collides with another as they colapse and you can see him give a wide smile. [[spoiler: Though this fits in-story with the reveal that they're all playing dead to fool Goldfinger.]]

* CaliforniaDoubling: Creator/SeanConnery never set foot in the USA once during the entire production. It was mostly filmed in England. The South American heroin plant in TheTeaser was a disused gasworks in London; Miami Beach was recreated in Pinewood; and Kentucky was actually Kent.

* ArtisticLicenceBiology: Being covered from head to foot in gold paint is certainly not good for you, but there is simply no such thing as "skin suffocation". The lungs are for breathing, not the skin. Instead, being covered in latex paint would kill you through severe heatstroke, since you would no longer be able to regulate your body temperature through sweating.

* MakingTheChoiceForYou: Bond is handcuffed to the ticking nuclear bomb, and has only seconds to figure out how to disarm it. He's about to go for some wires when another arm reaches in and flicks an off switch. The arm belongs to American agent Felix Leiter.

* LoopingLines
** All of Goldfinger's lines are dubbed, as Gert Fröbe spoke very poor English. It's really an amazing job, and you'd never know just watching the film.
** Curiously, it seems Sean Connery may have had to do the same thing for his character, particularly for his most iconic line "Do you expect me to talk?", as the way he said it in the trailer is completely different from the way he said it in the actual film.
