The Israel Film Censorship Board decided today to ban the further showing in Israel of the American-made film, “Goldfinger” because Gert Froebe, who plays the title role, was a member of the Nazi party. The film, which has been showing in Tel Aviv for the past five weeks, has been drawing capacity audiences.
