The Many Looks Of The Bond Villain | Auric Goldfinger (Gert Frobe)
Auric Goldfinger (Gert Frobe)

Film: Goldfinger (1964)

Style: Attempting to wear his wealth with some élan, Goldfinger instead comes off as crass and buffoonish, which adds to his slight air of off-kilter madness. He looks like a cartoon golfer in brogues, tweed plus-fours, big socks and a cardigan in the famous match early in the film. Later on, his sizeable frame will sport a fetching gold tuxedo – which is certainly eye-catching, but proves he’s no match for Bond in the stylish evening wear stakes.

Plan: Breaking into Fort Knox and irradiating America’s gold supply with a nuclear bomb.

Best Line: "No, Mr Bond, I expect you to die!"

7 Octopussy?
Technically speaking, Octopussy would've been the first female Bond villain. It's really a fine line as she was working with Kamal Khan at the same being an ally/love interest to Bond. Still, Elektra is the first full-on female villain. More

8 Stromberg's webbed!
Not many people know this but Curt Jurgen's Karl Stromberg character has webbed hands! The hands are only really noticeable if you see the movies in theaters or watch it on an HDTV. Otherwise, if you watch it on DVD on a standard TV, you'll have to zoom in or freeze frame to really spot them. They're perhaps most noticeable when they show a closeup of his hands pushing the button that leads to his secretary's death. More
