"Goldfinger" looks identical to the last Ultimate Edition DVD release in that it was mastered
directly from the camera negative and looks sensational. It's even better here from the same
source master because of the added pixels. The re-mixed 5.1 sound is fine too. Of course
in high definition, some of the rear screen shots look more artificial but overall it has the
"Glorious Technicolor" look of the era with vibrant primary colors and saturated tan fleshtones.
I covered the rest in my previous review of it so you can refer back to that for more details
about the production itself and where it fit into the series thematically and stylistically.
This is the first Bond film where Connery wore a hairpiece but it looks convincing.
If you wanted to nitpit on ratios, the film was shown in two formats back in 1965. In the US
it was shown in 1.85 and in Britain it was shown in 1.66. I'm sure they accomodated both
ratios when shooting the movie and it looks fine in 16:9.
So if you like Bond movies, rush out and get this blu ray. You won't be disappointed.
I do not know how I missed this review. But, once I do get my Blu-Ray, Goldfinger being one of my favorites, along with Thunderball, I will surely go pick this up.
