Bond in America ( after a saunter around Europe in his less-than-standard Aston Martin ). Auric Goldfinger, who has a passion for gold, plans to raid America's Fort Knox gold reserves by using a team of typically gorgeous female stunt fliers, led by hay-loving Pussy Galore, to spray the area with poison gas before cutting into the facility using an industrial laser which Bond has already seen at quarters a bit too close for comfort. Once inside, he plans to detonate a nuclear device to vaporise the gold thereby vastly increasing the value of his own holdings.

007 infiltrates the group and discovers the plan, leading a counterattack during the raid and, after a showdown with the amazing Oddjob in the vault itself, manages to neutralise the device with seconds to spare. Goldfinger meets his fitting end in a chilling manner during his 'escape' when he is sucked out of the window of a jet plane after the cabin depressurises. Which just leaves a contrite Pussy Galore for him to deal with in his usual manner . . .
