James Bond (Sean Connery) can’t hurt Odd Job (Harold Sakata) with a punch, a kick or a wrestling move. However, when Goldfinger‘s (Gert Fröbe) henchman tries to retrieve his bowler hat, stuck in-between some iron railings in Fort Knox, 007 grabs a nearby live electric cable and jams it into the railings.
‘The fireworks and sparks you see in the film are also possible. The cable whips around. When the cable is pulled apart from something, like the floor, sparks are made. They can also be created at that magnitude,’ he adds.
