Steam Sparky, Sparky

Bond 3: Goldfinger

I'm (re)watching the James Bond movies as research for BC:2007 and, mostly for my own benefit, am writing some notes about each one.

Bond movie no. 3: Goldfinger, released 1964. This film spawned two persistent myths that were debunked by MythBusters: that somebody whose skin is covered completely by gold paint will die of "skin suffocation" and that firing a gun through the window of an aircraft at altitude will cause explosive decompression that will suck out anybody who isn't strapped down and cause the plane to crash.

Notes, with spoilers, after the cut.Collapse )
