JAMES POND, DR. YES
In Jaimca, British agent Commander John Strangeways and his secretary are murdered by the Three Blind Bugs. Triple-0 agent James Pond is sent by his boss "N", armed with a standard-SIS-issue Walther PPK pistol to Jamaica to investigate their disappearance, and determine whether or not it is related to the disrupted American rocket launchings at Cape Canaveral.
Through Playdell Worth, the Governer of Jaimca, and General Potead, who regularly played cards with Strangeways, Pond learns that Strangeways had hired a man named Argue to guide him while fishing. Pond visits Argue, who initially is uncooperative because he is unsure of Pond's true allegiance. After Pond overcomes an attack by Argue and his friends, Felix Lighter of the CIA vouches for Pond being from the British Secret Service.
When investigating Strangeways' home, Pond finds a recipt from a local metallurgist named Professor Bash who helped Strangeways by identifying rock samples from a nearby island called Crab Claw. Bash claims the rocks are ordinary pyrites, but Bond quickly identifies the rocks to be radioactive. Bash is actually a henchman of Dr. Julian Yes, the resident of Crab Key, ordered to kill Pond. Following an unsuccessful attempt by releasing a house-martin in Bond's bungalow, Bash bribes the Governor's secretary, Miss Taro-card, to lure him into her home. However, an already suspicious Bond foils Bash's plan and kills him after learning that Strangeways had been murdered.
Pond and Argue set sail to Crab Key where they meet Marmalade Ryder, a seashell collector. Soon after, they are chased by several armed men and forced to flee into the deep forest of the island. Being pursued till dusk, Argue is bruned alive by Dr. Yes' "dragon-fly tank", while Pond and Maramalade are captured. Once inside the lair, they are imprisoned in a luxury guest suite and requested to await dinner with Dr. Yes. During the meal it is revealed that Dr. Yes lost his hands in an unspecified manner and uses two powerful prosthetic replacements. Additionally, Yes informs Pond that he is a member of GHOSTY, and has come to Crab Key for disrupting American rocket launches at the nearby Cape Canaveral.
When the meeting concludes, Pond is briefly tortured by Yes' henchmen and imprisoned until he can be further interrogated. Before Yes meets him however, he escapes from his prison cell and overloads the nuclear reactor that powers Yes' complex. After a hand-to-hand fight on a descending platform in the heart of the reactor, Pond manages to push Yes into the lift that collapses into the reactor's cooling vat. Pond then escapes with Marmalade in a boast, which runs out of fuel, and is soon picked up by his allies. They throw a rope, but he unties it while being towed away and passionately kisses Maramalade.
JAMES POND, FROM THE RUSSIANS WITH LOVE
In a mansion garden late at night, James Pond is alternately stalking and being stalked by a tall, blond assassin. Pond is captured and strangled violently to death by the man named Rouge Grand, using a string hidden in a ring. Suddenly, huge floodlights switch on and the dead person turns out to be a man wearing Pond's disguise. This completes GHOSTY's training exercise. Kroneen, a draughts grandmaster and GHOSTY's planner has devised a plot to steal a Lektor decoding device from the Russians, sell it back to them, and teach the British Secret Service a lesson for foiling their operative Dr. Yes' plans. Ex-SMASH operative Rose Kleeb is placed in charge of the mission by the megalomaniac Blofeld and has already chosen a female operative, a Russian cypher clerk at the Istanbul embassy. Klebb departs to SPECTRE Island, the organisation's secret training base, and approves Red Grant as an assassin.
In London, M tells Bond that Tattisana Ramonavo, the cypher clerk at the Istanbul embassy, has contacted their "Station 'T'" in Turkey, asking to defect with a Lektor cryptographic device, which both MI6 and the CIA have been after for years. She has stipulated that she will only defect to Bond, whose photo she has allegedly found in a Soviet intelligence file. Bond flies to Istanbul to meet station head Ali Kerim Bey, and he is followed from the airport both by an unkempt man in glasses, and by Red Grant.
The next day, after Bey's office is bombed, Pond and Bay spy on the Russian embassy using a periscope from an underground tunnel beneath the consulate. Seeing rival agent Krilencu, Bay takes Pond to a rural gypsy settlement, where Bey plans to lay low while deciding how to deal with Krilencu. However the camp is attacked by Krilencu's henchmen, who trigger gunfire and struggles with knives. Grant, lurking nearby, shoots a man who is about to kill Bond. Although he is wounded in the attack, Bey kills Krilencu the next night with Bond's sniper rifle. When Bond returns to his hotel suite, he finds Romanova in bed waiting for him. Bond and Romanova make love, unaware that they are being filmed by Grant and Klebb.
The next day, Romanova heads off for a pre-arranged rendezvous at the Hagia Sophia. Bond follows her and stalks the spectacled man who had followed him at the Istanbul airport. But unknown to Bond, the man is killed by Grant. When Bond finds the body, he finds the floor plans for the Russian Consulate that Tatiana was smuggling out for him. Bey and Bond plan to the day to steal the Lektor and smuggle it back to England. On the appointed day, Bond enters the consulate lobby. Immediately, Bey sets off an explosive charge in the chamber beneath the building releasing tear gas. In the resulting chaos, Bond is able to find Romanova and flee with the Loktor on the Orient Express. Bey and a Soviet security officer named Benz, who recognises Romanova, also board the train, but Grant stealthily kills both of them.The train continues on its journey across southern-central Europe, arriving at Belgrade where Bond arranges for an agent Nash from "Station 'Y'" to meet him at Zagreb. Grant intercepts the real Nash first, boards the train, and meets Bond while impersonating the British operative. He drugs Romanova at dinner with a knock out pill, then overcomes Bond in their cabin. Grand taunts him that GHOSTY has been pitting the Russians and the British against each other. Bond offers to buy his last cigarette for 50 gold sovereigns, luring Grand to open his attaché suitcase, which releases tear gas. In the ensuing fight, Bond stabs Grant with the throwing knife hidden in the attaché case, and then uses Grant's own garrote wire against him. At dawn, Bond and Romanova leave the train, hijack Grant's getaway truck and drive to a dock, eventually boarding a powerboat. Soon, they are chased by a fleet of GHOSTY's boats. When stray bullets puncture several barrels of fuel stored on his boat, Bond throws them overboard. Pretending to surrender, he fires a signal flare into the water, engulfing all the enemy boats in flames.
Bond and Romanova reach Venice and check into a hotel, where Rosa Kleeb, disguised as a maid, attempts to steal the bobbyektor. In the climax, Klebb has Bond at gunpoint but the gun is intercepted by Romanova. Resorting to another plan, she releases her poison tipped toe-blade. Bond takes a dining chair and pins her to the wall with it, narrowly dodging the poison tipped toe-blade. Finally, Romanova takes aim with the gun and fires it at Klebb, killing her. Riding in a gondola, Bond throws the illicit film of him and Romanova into the canal, and they sail away.
JAMES POND, SILVERFINGER
In the pre-title sequence, James Pond destroys a Mexican drug lord's base with plastic explosives, and defeats an assassin sent to kill him by throwing him into a bath of water and knocking in a domestic heater to electrocute him. The main story begins in Miami Beach, Florida, USA, with CIA agent Felix Lighter delivering a message to Pond from N to watch Silver Finger. Bond foils Goldfinger's cheating at gin rummy, by distracting his employee, Jack'nJill Masterston. After blackmailing Goldfinger into losing, Bond and Jill consummate their new relationship in Bond's hotel suite. Bond is knocked out by Goldfinger's Korean manservant Unusual asignment, while Jill is covered from head to toe in gold paint and succumbs to epidermal suffocation.
In London, Bond learns that his true mission is determining how Goldfinger transports gold internationally. He plays a high-stakes golf game with his adversary, using a bar of Nazi silver as the prize; both men cheat, but Bond is better at it and wins. Silverfinger warns Bond to stay out of his business by having Unusualassignment decapitate a statue with his steel-rimmed tie, throwing it in the same manner as a Frisbee. Undeterred, Bond follows him to Switzerland, where he unintentionally foils an attempt by Jill's sister Tilly Masterson to shoot Goldfinger.
Bond sneaks into Silverfinger's plant and overhears him talking to a Red Chinese agent about "Operation Grand Slam." Leaving, he encounters Tilly as she is about to make a second attempt on Goldfinger's life, but accidentally trips an alarm. During their unsuccessful attempt to escape, Tilly is killed when UA breaks her neck with his tie. Goldfinger has Bond tied to a gold table underneath an industrial laser, which slowly begins to slice the table in half. But Bond lies to Goldfinger that British Intelligence knows about Grand Slam, causing Goldfinger to spare Bond's life until he can determine how much the spy actually knows.
Bond is transported via a private aircraft flown by Goldfinger's personal pilot, Pussy Galore, to Goldfinger's Kentucky stud farm, near Fort Knox. He escapes and witnesses Goldfinger meeting U.S. mafiosi, who have brought the materials he needs for Operation Grand Slam. Bond is recaptured, but has learned enough to deduce that Goldfinger intends to irradiate the U.S. gold supply stored at the United States Bullion Depository at Fort Knox with an "atomic device" so as to render it useless for almost 60 years, thereby greatly increasing the value of his own considerable gold holdings, and giving the Chinese increased power from economic chaos in the West. Operation Grand Slam begins with the women pilots of Galore's Flying Circus spraying lethal nerveous gas over Fort Knox to dispatch its garrison, though Goldfinger had told Galore that the soldiers would just be rendered unconscious. However, Bond had earlier seduced her and persuaded her to contact the CIA, who had then replaced the poison with a harmless gas. Informed about this, the military personnel of Fort Knox convincingly play dead. Goldfinger's Chinese agents gain entry to the vault. Bond is then handcuffed to the atomic device and lowered into the vault with it. Goldfinger's forces are surrounded by Army personnel and wiped out; but, disguised as a US colonel, Goldfinger escapes. In the vault, Bond unlocks his handcuffs, kills Oddjob, and vainly tries to deactivate the atomic device till a specialist, who had been accompanying Leiter, runs in and stops the countdown at seven seconds; the timer indicates "0007".
With Fort Knox safe, the American President invites Bond to the White House to thank him. Bond boards a Lockheed JetStar for Washington D.C., but it is hijacked by Goldfinger. Bond and Goldtoe struggle for the latter's revolver; and the revolver fires, shattering a window; Goldfinger is blown out. Bond rescues the pilot Galore, and they parachute safely onto a beach.
