United Kingdom | 1964 | Guy Hamilton
Probably the most famous and iconic of all James Bond films (third in the series) stars Sean Connery as Agent 007, Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore, Gert Frobe as precious metals magnate Auric Goldfinger, and Harold Sakata as hat-throwing hit man Oddjob. Shirley Bassey sings the classic theme song. The story concerns international criminal masterminds who plot to tamper with the U.S. stockpile of gold bullion at Fort Knox in order to wreak havoc on the world economy. (This was before sub-prime mortgages, mortgage-backed securities, and collateralized debt obligations simplified the process.)
