The movie Goldfinger (1964) was significant both for the James Bond series and for Slazenger, as it contains the famours golf scene where Sean Connery wears the Burgundy Legend Jumper when playing against Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe), the villain in the movie.

In the course of investigation, James Bond will hear of an operation called Grand Slam, what apears to be a plan to destabilize the global economy. As in every movie, James Bond will have to stop it.
Golfinger was the third James Bond movie, and it became a template for all the following movies. It was the first movie where Bond relayed heavily on technology, and also the first where Q showed gadgets in developmet.

The basic structure was also repeated, having a henchman with a particular charasteristic, a bond girl killed by the villain, big emphasys on gadgets as mentioned before and more ironical speaking giving it a comical touch.
