September 14, 2012

Goldfinger, the third James Bond film, is often seen as the quintessential Bond movie--the one where all the elements came together to form the James Bond formula. But in print, Goldfinger was Fleming's seventh novel, the British agent is investigating smuggler and game cheat Auric Goldfinger. Similar in many ways to its theatrical part, Stuart reviews the original novel and compares it to the big screen counterpart. As part of James Bond's 50th Anniversary, the podcast Now Playing is reviewing all of the James Bond films and we at Books & Nachos are looking at all of Fleming's original Bond novels and short stories. In this episode, join Stuart as he reads and reviews Goldfinger.
