Show synopsis "Goldfinger" is the seventh of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels and takes the British spy across the globe to destroy a gold-obsessed megalomaniac...Auric Goldfinger: cruel, clever, frustratingly careful. A cheat at Canasta and a crook on a massive scale in everyday life. The sort of man James Bond hates. So it's fortunate that Bond is the man charged by both the Bank of England and MI5 to discover what the richest man in the country intends to do with his ill-gotten gains - and what his connection is with SMERSH, the feared Soviet spy-killing corps. But once inside this deadly criminal's organization, 007 finds that Goldfinger's schemes are more grandiose - and lethal - than anyone could have imagined. Not only is he planning the greatest gold robbery in history, but mass murder as well.
