What's Up With the Title?

Goldfinger is one of few Bond titles that feature the name of the villain, putting him up alongside the ranks of Dr. No (1962) and Octopussy (1983)—no relation to Ms. Galore.

Goldfinger, by the way, is not to be confused with GoldenEye (1995), Pierce Brosnan's first outing as Bond; Goldmember (2002), an Austin Powers movie; Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson's mother, who inexplicably was never a Bond girl; or Gold Bond, which is an itch powder. Goldfinger is about Bond trying to take down a gold smuggler named, obviously, Goldfinger.

Pretty straightforward.
