Goldfinger's Laser used by Auric Goldfinger and his men
Owned by Auric Goldfinger
Featured in Goldfinger (1964)
While lasers are used in everything from CD players to barcode scanners today, things were very different in 1964. Goldfinger's laser therefore was seen as a revolutionary idea. He uses the laser on Bond whilst he is strapped to a gold table in the famous scene. It is also used later to burn through one of the doors in Fort Knox to gain access.
Although the actual laser beam was added in optically later, a technician burning the metal from underneath the table using a blowtorch created the laser effect. Understandably, Sean Connery is not just acting as the laser becomes increasingly close to rather important areas! §
