1964 Goldfinger 01

Sean Connery as James Bond in GOLDFINGER (d. Hamilton, United Artists, 1965)

GOLDFINGER (Rated: Approved, 110 min., United Artists, Jan 9, 1965 – US)

I have a confession to make: I had never watched a Bond film all the way through until I went to the theater to see the series reboot with Daniel Craig in CASINO ROYALE. I was conversant in the history of the movies, the source material, behind-the-scenes power struggles between studio, producer and the Fleming estate, the various casting choices for Bond over the years, and the character’s place in pop culture – but the movies themselves never enticed me.

So, Movie Monday seems the perfect opportunity to give Bond a shot. And if I’m going to do that – it ought be, Connery…Sean Connery. And the movie that Roger Ebert called “the best of all the Bonds.”

Watched on Blu ray

*Every Monday I watch a classic or historically significant movie that falls into one of these categories: 1) Have never seen it, or 2) Have never seen it uncut, or 3) Have only seen it once, or 4) Haven’t seen it in a very long time.
