Goldfinger is without doubt one of the most famous, iconic and memorable of all the James Bond films, and on its release in 1964 it set movie screens alight around the world with a heady cocktail of creativity that became an entertainment phenomenon; from its glittering opening credit titles designed by Robert Brownjohn, accompanied by Shirley Bassey belting out its brassy main title theme written by John Barry, Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley, through to the corpse of an unfortunate woman painted gold, a man with a deadly steel-rimmed flying hat, an Aston Martin DB5 ‘with modifications’, a Bond Girl whose feline name caused much trepidation, death by laser beam, a larger than life villain with the Midas touch, and the golden gleaming cathedral-like interior of Fort Knox, as imagined by brilliant Production Designer Ken Adam – with all these elements its hardly surprising that the heady concoction that is Goldfinger impressed so many in 1964, and now, 50 years later, remains a popular evergreen entertainment for successive generations of film fans and Bond enthusiasts alike.

The portfolio is limited to 350 pieces. Each individually numbered copy (from 001 to 00350) of the ‘Goldfinger portfolio’ steelbook comes wrapped in gold tissue paper in its own sturdy individual mailing box.
