Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Goldfinger, the 1964 James Bond film, is considered by many to be among the best in the Bond series. Per all Bond films, expect plenty of sexual innuendo from 007. Though it's delivered in a frothy way, it's still pervasive and by this point quite dated. And yes, this is the Bond movie with a character named Pussy Galore. Though she's depicted as an intelligent, skilled aircraft pilot, she falls literally head over heels for Bond during some rough foreplay. There are also plenty of explosions, car chases, and general action violence sprinkled throughout the movie -- gunshots, electrocutions, fistfights. Bond is a frequent drinker who doesn't really suffer from any adverse effects. Goldfinger's henchmen and collaborators are largely Japanese men, which means that all Japanese characters in the film appear to be evil (although there are no racial slurs used or verbal stereotyping). A woman is murdered by having her naked body covered in gold (she's only shown from behind).

Sexual Content

One of the lead characters is named "Pussy Galore." Strong sexual implications and innuendo (a Bond trademark), although no graphic nudity or sex acts are shown. A female character dies as a result of having her naked body painted gold (shown from behind). Bond slaps a bikini-clad woman on the rear end as she walks away.


Frequent action violence. A man is electrocuted to death in a bathtub; another man is electrocuted to death later in the movie. Men are knocked unconscious with kicks to the face. Massive explosions when a building is blown up with dynamite. Fight and battle scenes. A woman's dead body is discovered in a hotel bed entirely covered in gold paint.


A main character is named Pussy Galore -- probably the most risqué/sexual "Bond girl" name. Some sexual innuendo; references to being "entirely satisfied."

Social Behavior

Bond stands up against thievery, but he also indulges in a lot of sexist behavior and is known for his vices (drinking and womanizing). Some implication that Japanese characters are evil.


Bond drives an Aston Martin.
