Goldfinger (partially found deleted scenes from James Bond movie; 1964)
|The deleted scene that is present in the opening credit sequence|
Goldfinger is the third film in the James Bond series and the third to star Sean Connery as Bond. The film has at least three scenes that were deleted from the final cut that have not been released publically.
- There is a portion of Bond's visit to Q's laboratory that includes him walking by a Royal Mail truck and talking to the technicians there. It is unknown if there is more to this scene. It is included in the opening credit sequence during a montage of scenes.
- Prior to the Fort Knox invasion, Felix Leiter (Cec Linder) talked to the townspeople to trick Auric Goldfinger's (Gert Frobe) invasion. This scene was deleted because the producers thought it made Felix "too heroic" compared to Bond. This scene does apparently still exist, as it was on the internet at one point, only to be taken down by Eon Productions.
The May 31, 2015 issue of 007 Magazine found still images of two other deleted scenes:
- A scene of Bond and Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton) in a hotel room practicing or playing cards. The article speculates that this may not have been a deleted scene, but rather director Guy Hamilton (who can be seen in some of the images) training the two in Gin Rummy for the movie.
- There was also a scene of Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman) inside Goldfinger's Rumpus Room. It should be noted that in the source novel, Galore is part of the scene that takes place in the room.
Besides the one that was on the internet, it is unknown if any of these clips still exist.
