* 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.

* TheVoiceless: Oddjob.

to:

* TheVoiceless: Oddjob.Oddjob, due to never having learned English. The only sound he ever makes in the film is him screaming in pain as he's electrocuted by Bond when he electrifies the metal bars that are holding Oddjob's hat.

* CureYourGays: In the book (and possibly the movie as well, it's only hinted at), Pussy is a LipstickLesbian until Bond's magic charms makes her reconsider. Honor Blackman discussed this aspect in a 2006 AMC television special, "Bond Girls Are Forever". She thinks that Pussy only believed she was a lesbian because Goldfinger (In the novel, it was her uncle instead) abused her pretty badly, and Bond's charm got her in touch with her actual heterosexuality.

This is not remotely implied in the movie, however. The one time Goldfinger and Pussy interact onscreen, she's relaxing beside him at his Kentucky ranch and they seem to have a comfortable professional relationship.
