Named by the American Film Institute as one of cinema’s greatest screen heroes, James Bond was back in action for GOLDFINGER (1964) – this time tasked with stopping the titular terrorist, who himself appeared on AFI’s list of cinema’s greatest villains. This third theatrical outing of the iconic agent also earned a spot on AFI’s ranking of the art form’s most heart-pounding adventures, and its iconic theme song – sung by Shirley Bassey – appeared among the institute’s accounting of cinema’s greatest songs. Suave and ruthless, the inimitable 007 was embodied once again by Sean Connery, who was honored with an AFI Life Achievement Award in 2006 – and whose delivery of Bond’s classic drink order also earned a place among AFI’s greatest movie quotes of all time.
