Goldfinger, the third and best James Bond film, was released 60 years ago — but still glitters.

In honor of the Nicholas Shakespeare’s new biography of Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming: The Complete Man, let’s revisit the last Bond movie made during Fleming’s lifetime — starring Sean Connery as British super spy 007.

We aren’t the only ones who consider Goldfinger the best James Bond film. Connery (above, with Margaret Nolan as Dink) tops most sane lists of the best James Bond actor, Auric Goldfinger is consistently ranked among the best Bond villains, and the character played by Honor Blackman (more on her soon) is widely considered one of the best Bond girls. Here are 12 Goldfinger behind the scenes images, for your eyes only.
