    While Bond’s Aston-Martin is following Goldfinger’s Rolls Royce and still in Britain, an interesting scene takes place at Southend Airport in Southend, Essex, UK. The Rolls is loaded aboard an unusual aircraft operated by British United Airferries which kind of looks like a piston-drive miniature 747 with the bulbous nose. This plane was very unusual and only about 20 were ever built. It is a converted DC-4 known as a “Carvair” and was briefly used for cross-channel services. Southend Airport is now called London Southend Airport in an attempt to attract more business.

    Hi Bond fans. from New Jersey USA. The Special edition dvd commentary says that scenes of the hotel pool, with Bond meeting CIA Agent Felix Leiter, Bond with girl ” Dink ” , Bond in Goldfinger’s suite and meeting Jill Masterson, and breaking up Goldfinger’s crooked card game, were mostly done with back projection plates and screens of the Fountainbleu at Pinewood Studios; as actors Cec Linder and Gert Frobe were not available for filiming in Florida. Thanx

    I have been a Goldfinger enthusiast since the movie came out in the 60’s. Mostly interested in the scenes that were SUPPOSEDLY filmed in Kentucky, USA, but looked suspiciously like FLORIDA…note the palm trees as the two agents sent to keep track of Bond follow the tracking device, and the ODDJOB scene murdering the mob boss SOLO. Too Floridian looking to be Kentucky. The gravel on the side of the interstate and highways looks a lot like Florida sand. Were ALL of the background scenes for the agents tailing Bond actually filmed in Kentucky OR, conveniently filmed in and around MIAMI. Today’s Fontainblue hotel is but a shadow of it’s former self, but just as expensive. The background scene as ODDJOB drove past the entrance to the Kentucky airport looked like the old Miami airport entrance to me. Just saying….anyone know for sure?

      There is a quick moment when you can see a street sign that says ‘OPA LOCKA BLVD’ which is in Miami. The prominent background of Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant is supposed to easily convince the audience of Kentucky.

      My job has me driving around Miami for 20 years… those driving scenes with the 2 FBI agents following Odd Job are on US 441 in North Miami, ( recognize the KFC and the Royal Castle) and the scrap metal place in on Miami River area that has many scrap metal business.
