Homage to Goldfinger

Sir: While generally panning Quantum of Solace, Deborah Ross complains that the film ‘doesn’t even give itself the odd, knowing wink. No Speedos, no plays on martinis being shaken not stirred, no Omega moments...’ (Arts, 1 November). Well, what did she think the oil-covered lovely on the bed was then? Or hasn’t she ever seen Goldfinger?
