Released in 1964, Goldfinger soon became one of the most iconic films from the action/spy genre. Starring Sean Connery as James Bond, the suave and sophisticated British operative is given the charge to save the world from Auric Goldfinger (Gert Frobe), a madman determined to horde the world's most precious metal -- including the holdings of Fort Knox.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Goldfinger...
One of the most memorable James Bond outings, Goldfinger pits the super-spy against a madman who wants all the gold in the world. Frequent car chases, gunfights and physical confrontations are included. A character is electrocuted in a bathtub. A woman is killed and her body is covered in gold paint (seen naked from behind). Tires are slashed on a car, causing it to drive off the road. Another car crashes after hitting an oil slick. A man is threatened with being cut in half with a laser beam, and is later shot with a tranquilizer. A military base is sprayed with a chemical that leaves the population unconscious. A car is crushed while a presumably unconscious man is inside (no details seen). In addition to the gold-covered naked corpse, a woman is shown coming out of a shower wrapped in a towel (naked upper back is seen). A woman in underwear and a man without a shirt are also seen. Sexual relations are implied on two occasions. Some mild sexual innuendo is heard and a character’s name is a double-entendre. Smoking and drinking are portrayed as luxurious activities and a verbal reference to heroin is heard.
