* Does anyone else find it unrealistic for a theatre showing ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' to be half empty in 1965?

**** I believe some of you have fallen victim to DeliberateValuesDissonance - disowning her for what she did may seem cruel in todays moral system, but back then it was probably considered the sensible thing to do. Thus, it's hard to judge her parents on that part. However, it may still explain and perhaps even redeem Brenda's actions quite a bit.

** Well if you're judging by the film then yes she did set him up. If you notice, Frank see's an FBI agent whisper in her ear and Brenda nods agreement. Her parents were bullies so they no doubt forced her coersion with the authorities.

**** Well, they probably threatened to disown her again. I bet they but the blame totally on her for embarrassing the family name!

***** I would think, for a lot of people, morality WOULD trump family. Regardless, that's hardly "bullying."

**** Her parents disowned her after she had an abortion. They ranked their own view on morality above family.

*** Her parents were bullies? IIRC, they were basically the two nicest people you'd ever meet. Frank seemed to fall in love with Brenda at least partially because of how absolutely perfect and functional her family was! I don't think it's considered "bullying" for a father to persuade his daughter to help the authorities capture a wanted fugitive who's lied about every single thing he's ever said to you.

* Did Brenda actually help the FBI to set up a sting at Miami international, or did they just follow her and she didn't notice?
