The legendary Bond v Auric Goldfinger interrogation scene

The first scene to be filmed on Goldfinger (1964) between Bond and the villain was actually the one with 007 tied to the laser table. Special effects supervisor Cliff Culley said: “They bought a real laser in, which looked great. It had a pencil-thin line, but as soon as you turned all the studio lights on, it disappeared. So John Stears and his special effects team made up this fake one, and we optically put the laser beam on afterwards.”
