A warning for following the in flight safety instructions. Goldfinger, having been foiled in his plot to render the gold reserves at Fort Knox unusable by detonating a nuclear device there, seeks to exact revenge on Mr Bond as he enjoys a relaxing trip home on the president's jet. A scuffle ensues, in which Goldfinger accidentally shoots out a window of the aircraft.

Goldfinger ultimately fails in this high pressure situation

Fortunately for all Bond enthusiasts, Bond has the wherewithall to wrap himself around some curtains. Poor Auric is less fortunate and is sucked out into the atmosphere (after an amusing period where his rather ample frame blocks the hole).

Just one category for this death : Falling

if Auric Goldfinger had lived the entire $15,000,000,000 gold supply of the USA would have been radioactive for 58 years.

did Auric Goldfinger meet the same fate as Vladmir Popov from Die Another Day?

It was a MUCH tighter squeeze on Goldfinger's mound o' fat

Pressure? It was the result of depressurisation in the cabin, after all.
Comment 6 by 'Mr. Briggs Incorporated' (reply to this comment)
It is a result of pressure, what do the admins think?

P.S. Anyone else notice the random dead Korean lying on the floor of the plane?
Comment 7 by 'Kooshmeister' (reply to this comment)
I think there was a deleted bit to the Bond/Goldfinger fight wherein some of Goldfinger's goons got involved, hence the guy lying on the floor.
Comment 8 by 'Mr. Briggs Incorporated' (reply to this comment)
Any proof to back this?
Comment 9 by 'Kooshmeister' (reply to this comment)
None that I have, I just read about it somewhere.
Comment 10 by 'Roadkill' (reply to this comment)
In the book, he was strangled by Bond.
Comment 11 by 'Mr. Briggs Inc.' (reply to this comment)
Strangled and battered, I think the plane still crashed though

[quote Karl_Eichholtz_13]if Auric Goldfinger had lived the entire $15,000,000,000 gold supply of the USA would have been radioactive for 58 years.[/quote]No, Bond and Felix had already stopped the nuclear bomb from blowing up.

well thats one way to lose weight
Comment 14 by 'Flashpenny' (reply to this comment)
Does falling qualify? Bond said that if someone got sucked out of a decompressurized plane, they'd get sucked into outer space or burn up in the atmosphere. Hell when you see Goldfinger floating around in the air, you see him getting sucked up; not falling down. I'm pretty sure that would rank in with "Asphyxiation", "Combustion" and possibly "Freezing" (if he ever made it to space).

What about 'Pressure'? I'm surprised this category hasn't been added already.
