Goldfinger Felix Leiter (Cec Linder)

Felix Leiter (Cec Linder)

CIA MIA

Felix is James Bond's CIA counterpart. However, he mainly serves to give Bond information and swoop in to round up the bad guys after Bond has already done all the dirty work. While Bond is engaging in high-speed chases, almost being cut in half by a laser, and jumping from a plummeting airplane, Felix's biggest moment is when he pretends to be asleep.

Although the filmmakers appear to be trying to appeal to American audiences by setting significant parts of Goldfinger in the U.S., the fact that it shows CIA agents sitting around eating KFC shows us what they really think of Americans.
