** German actor Creator/GertFröbe as Goldfinger. He was a member of the Nazi Party, and the film was consequently banned in Israel for many years until it was revealed that he secretly helped Jews flee the country. He was also uncomfortable at the idea of playing a German character who gasses to death a large number of people.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** Harold Sakata was actually getting burned during Oddjob's electrocution, [[DyeingForYourArt but decided to keep going until the director yelled "Cut"]].

** Harold Sakata was actually getting burned during Oddjob's electrocution, [[DyeingForYourArt but decided to keep going until the director yelled "Cut"]]. That's why Bond looked concerned rather than relieved that his enemy was dead.
