Goldfinger (1964)

Bond is ordered to observe bullion dealer Auric Goldfinger: he sees Goldfinger cheating at cards and stops him by distracting his employee, who is subsequently killed by Goldfinger’s Korean manservant Oddjob. Bond is then instructed to investigate Goldfinger’s gold smuggling and he follows the dealer to Switzerland. Bond is captured when he reconnoitres Goldfinger’s plant and is drugged; he is taken to Goldfinger’s Kentucky stud farm and is imprisoned. He escapes briefly to witness Goldfinger’s meeting with U.S. mafiosi, who have brought the materials he needs for an operation to rob Fort Knox.

Bond is recaptured after hearing the details of the operation, but he subsequently seduces Pussy Galore, Goldfinger’s private pilot and convinces her to inform the American authorities. Goldfinger’s private army break into Fort Knox and access the vault, where Bond fights and kills Oddjob, while American troops battle with Goldfinger’s army outside. Bond’s plane is hijacked by Goldfinger, but Bond struggles with him, and shoots out a window, creating an explosive decompression, killing Goldfinger
