Crazy Credits The opening credits are a montage of scenes from the film projected over a gold-painted female corpse. Alternate Versions The English mono track on the Blu-ray fades the end credits version of the Goldfinger theme about 5 seconds early, around the same time as the picture goes to black.
All other audio tracks keep the long version. As well, the Blu-ray includes a few restoration credits right after the fade to black, but these do not replace anything or alter the timing.

Goldfinger has the best henchman — Japanese-born Harold Sakata as Oddjob, the thickset Korean with the deadly steel-rimmed bowler. And the best car — the Aston Martin DB5 with smokescreen, oil slick, front-wing machine guns and passenger ejector seat, all of which Bond employs against carfuls of henchmen in pursuit … to no avail, because he ends up totalling it and getting captured anyway.
Which brings me to what I like most about Goldfinger: it makes me laugh.
I never tire of the back projection used to make it look as if Connery is in Miami rather than Pinewood, the disposable comedy gangsters, the montage of troops pretending to be gassed and collapsing unconvincingly, or of Pussy Galore's crack team of girly stunt pilots. Best of all is Bond's uselessness. He manages to get both Masterton sisters killed one of them covered in gold paint, the best ever death of a Bond girl and spends most of the film quaffing Dom Perignon, a "rather disappointing brandy", martini or mint julep, you name it. He gets strapped to a table with a new-fangled laser beam pointed at his private parts: the best Bond-in-peril scene and one that is not easily escapable — our man's family jewels remain intact only thanks to the villain's inexplicable reluctance to deliver the coup de grace.
For the last hour of the film, Bond is Goldfinger's prisoner while the action occurs elsewhere, and it's Poosy who saves the day though of course 's studliness might have something to do with changing her mind. But even at the climax, he's reduced to bashing cack-handedly at the atomic bomb casing with a gold brick, trying in vain to stop the countdown, only for a CIA man to step in at the last minute and calmly flick the "off" switch.
Despite its hero's ineptitude, Goldfinger is full of quintessential Bond moments, all of which have since been recycled or spoofed so many times you forget this is where they began — Bond tricking the jailer into opening his cell door, a minor bad guy's car reduced to a scrunched-up cube in a scrapyard compactor, the villain shooting his own henchmen.
