* CaliforniaDoubling: Creator/SeanConnery never set foot in the USA once during the entire production. It was mostly filmed in England.
* CompletelyDifferentTitle:
** ''007 Against Goldfinger'' (Brazil & Portugal).
** ''Mission Goldfinger'' (Italy).
** ''007 Versus Goldfinger'' (China).
** ''Agent 007 Against Goldfinger'' (Spain).
* CrosscastRole: Some of Pussy Galore's all-woman Flying Circus were played by men wearing blonde wigs.
* DeletedScene: A scene where Felix would be explaining to the townspeople the plan of faking their deaths to trick Goldfinger was cut, as it made Felix seem 'too heroic' compared to Bond (ironically, it was Felix and his fellow CIA agents who would save both Fort Knox and Bond himself). The scene was leaked online, but quickly removed by EON, and has never been officially released.



** The actor who played Oddjob was more of an athlete than an actor, and did not master the cinematic art of pulling back one's blows. When he injures James' neck in one scene, Sean Connery was actually hurt, and his discomfort was real.

** The original plan for the climax was to have the climactic battle happen on the gates of Fort Knox, but it was decided that it would be [[RuleOfCool much cooler]] to actually get to see the vault from the inside.
