Nolan’s work in ‘Goldfinger’ is somewhat unique as she appears as Dink in the Miami sequence but also as the ‘golden girl’ in the titles sequence designed by Robert Brownjohn. Her body famously had scenes projected onto it for the iconic credits. She was approached for just the title sequence but negotiated the additional small role of Dink.
Back in 2014, Nolan explained to MI6 Confidential magazine that she was not as comfortable with the chauvinism present in her scene which sees Bond dismiss her by patting her backside: “It was sexist, but that’s how things were back then, I came to expect it. Thank goodness things have moved on somewhat.”
The image of Nolan was also used for the official soundtrack cover, posters, and press advertisements – not Shirley Eaton whose character Jill Masterson was painted in gold in the film itself. Her appearance in ‘Goldfinger’ also lead to a Playboy spread for James Bond’s Girls in the November 1965 issue.
