Goldfinger

comment

Nothing grabs our attention more than tales of international intelligence--the danger, the bad guys, the wacky gadgets. We have Ian Fleming's James Bond to thank for making espionage sexy and no one was better at turning our heads than the first and arguably the best Agent 007, Sean Connery. The N.C. Museum of History is sponsoring a James Bond Film Series (featuring only those films with Mr. Connery) to go hand in hand with its own spy exhibit, America's Secret Warriors: The O.S.S. and the George Watts Hill Collection--a collection of gadgets, photos and the like, used by the Office of Strategic Services during World War II. This "First Friday," an evening that has become synonymous with "free fun," the museum will show Goldfinger, the fourth of the James Bond series, and the one to which most spy films made since its 1964 release have looked for inspiration. See "Special Showings" for details.
