* Bond meets Goldfinger for a game of golf. Despite the seriousness of the situation there are some moments:

Under the strict rules that Goldfinger insisted on, Goldfinger loses the last hole and therefore the match for playing the wrong ball. Goldfinger is furious, Bond is pleased, and the caddy can barely contain his glee.
