The Goldfinger Files

The Making of the Iconic Alpine Sequence in the James Bond Movie Goldfinger

By Steffen Appel & Peter Wälty. Foreword by Franck Hamilton. Photos by Hans Gerber, Josef Ritler, Erich Kocian, et al.

The Goldfinger Files

Unseen images and documents from the ultimate Bond film

Perhaps the classic James Bond film, Goldfinger (1964) undoubtedly marked the beginning of 1960s Bondmania. Incorporating much unpublished material, including photographs and the original typed screenplay, The Goldfinger Files is an illustrated history of the film’s iconic scenes shot in Switzerland’s Urseren Valley, crowned by the car chase with Bond’s gadget-laden Aston Martin.

To maximize publicity for the film, its makers took the unorthodox step of inviting journalists and photographers onto the set, resulting in a wealth of photos, including those by Hans Gerber, Josef Ritler and Erich Kocian. These give us an insider’s view of the famous sequence—Goldfinger’s Rolls-Royce on the dusty mountain road, Tilly Masterson’s failed assassination attempt on him, the chase between her Mustang and Bond’s Aston Martin and finally Goldfinger’s smelting factory. Dozens of private pictures revealing candid, behind-the-scenes moments complete this documentary flipbook of golden-age James Bond culture.

Julia Vitale

Featuring never-before-seen photographs by Hans Gerber, Josef Ritler, and Erich Kocian—in a rare move, photographers had been invited onto the set, resulting in a wealth of images—and the original typed screenplay, the book provides an illustrated history of the [epic car] chase.

Speed Readers

The alpine sequence cannot be viewed in isolation—it is embedded in a phenomenon of commercial pop culture of historical dimensions. In the autumn of 1964 ‘Goldfinger’ triggered the so-called Bondmania—the worldwide epidemic enthusiasm for the libertine James Bond and his fascinatingly dangerous as well as erotic adventures.
