Goldfinger is one of the stand out themes written by John Barry and Leslie Bricusse. In the film, Bond- agent 007 (Sean Connery) faces off against a powerful tycoon who’s setting to raid Fort Knox to steal much of the world's gold supply. This title song is one of the most famous Bond tunes- unique, sensual and spine tingling with Didier Lockwood’s evocative violin weaving throughout. Charlotte Smith has chosen to match the song with this fabulous dress from the Darnell Collection of the same period. We can just imagine Jill Masterson, the blonde assistant/escort of the film's villain Auric Goldfinger wearing this gown before she meets her final end… death by GOLD paint!
