I think the book and the movie are different about what is to happen to the gold.
quote:In the 1959 Ian Fleming novel Goldfinger, the titular villain, Auric Goldfinger plots to break into the U.S. Bullion Depository in a criminal plot called "Operation Grand Slam". With the help of several gangsters (including the Spangled Mob and the Mafia) Goldfinger plans to kill the inhabitants of Fort Knox by poisoning their water supply and then steal the gold.
But as the youtube clip (message 659) points out, the gold is a LOT of mass to move. I don't know how the book proposes to deal with that. I guess just steal a small part of the gold.
Thus (I hope) ends the topic diversion (but I doubt it).
