Before principal shooting begins on BOND 24 (Dec.6 2014) another milestone in the Bond Franchise deserves special recognition. Perhaps it is due to the fact that it is considered by many authors, experts, critics and fans to be the best 007 film of the series. It is the quintessential spy thriller!! From the Opening Credits and the booming voice of Shirley Bassey to Oddjob and Pussy Galore, Goldfinger is considered the perfect shaken and stirred mix of the James Bond Formula, and remains a cinema classic released at the height of the 007 Phenomenon.
