Goldfinger - Gold Suffocation

Shirley Eaton underwent two hours of make-up application which involved being gild painted to become a gold corpse. A doctor was on set at all times in fear of possible skin suffocation(despite popular belief skin suffocation can't occur)

Her shots lasted less than five minutes in the finished film and the filming wrapped in a morning's work. To remove the gold paint from all over her body, Shirley Eaton was scrubbed down by the wardrobe mistress and the make-up girl, and then had to sweat off the remaining gold in a number of Turkish baths.
