* 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.

* 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.

* DeathTrap: The gold-cutting laser Goldfinger has Bond strapped to is one of the most iconic in cinema, if not fiction in general. Something of a subversion of the usual way the trope is played out, however, in that it actually is a pretty good trap; it's only a bit of quick bluffing that manages to get Bond out of it.

More than the previous entry, ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'', this one is almost always considered to be the high point of the series, where all the characteristic elements were in perfect alignment.

** Even better given how the novel ''did'' try to push the idea of stealing the gold.

** Even better given how the novel ''did'' try to push the idea of stealing the gold. gold, and that in the book, Bond was the only person who thought Goldfinger's plan would fail.

* MuteButNotSilent: Oddjob, Auric Goldfinger's BattleButler. Goldfinger says when he's introduced that Oddjob is mute, and indeed the only sound he ever makes is a wordless yell to tell his master he's "found" his missing golf ball (as in, planted a new one).
