Goldfinger Scene 5

Scene 5

Scene 5

  • That night, Bond has a hot date with M and a man named Colonel Smithers from the Bank of England. (No relation to Mr. Burns from the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant.)
  • The men are talking about bullion, and we don't mean the little cubes you put in soup.
  • Smithers says that Goldfinger is living up to his name by smuggling gold between countries.
  • It's Bond's job to figure out how Goldfinger's getting gold out of the country.
  • Bond wants bait, and Smithers has it—a giant chunk of gold worth five thousand pounds.
  • That's a heavy bar.
  • In the morning, Bond reports to Q branch for his gadgets.
  • Q gives Bond a slick ride—an Aston Martin DB5.
  • The car has bulletproof glass, a homing device, a radar, smokescreen, oil slicks, machine guns, and an ejector seat. Sounds like a fun ride.
