Goldfinger is a straightforward story with minimal surprises - except Goldfinger's plan to contaminate rather than steal the gold at Fort Knox. What sets Goldfinger apart is Richard Maibaum and Paul Dehl's use of memorable scenes and character interactions to present key plot points and foreshadowing: Bond meeting Goldfinger and Odd Job for the first time (and learning of Odd Job's deadly bowler hat weapon); Bond learning the consequences of provoking Goldfinger (Jill Masterson covered in gold paint); Bond in his DB-5 meeting Tilly Masterson; Bond revealing to Goldfinger that he is aware of 'Operation Grandslam' (while facing the industrial laser); Bond killing Goldfinger. Classic Bond, but perfectly structured.
