Sure, the new Bond, Daniel Craig, revived the franchise in a big way recently, but we all know that the most iconic movie in the series—the one that set all the standards, from the theme music to the deadly toys—is still the best: Goldfinger. Join James Bond, Pussy Galore, Oddjob, and the rest of the crew as Auric Goldfinger attempts to destroy the American economy by nuking Fort Knox. (These days, he would have just peddled subprime mortgages to the investment banks.) And stick around to see how it all got started back in 1962 with the very first movie of the Bond series, Dr. No. Two films for the price of one? Now that’s a way to beat the bad economy.
