Hi Joseph,

 

It is a kind of extrabold Clarendon.

 

The image you posted shows an R with a distinctive uptick. I don’t find a letterform with such a detail back in other Goldfinger posters. Here is a larger image, from an original poster:

 

 

This specific version looks heavier than Bitstream’s Clarendon Black or URW’s Clarendon Extra Bold. Among digital fonts, Belizio Black or Aldogizio Heavy might come closest. These two go back to Egizio, which didn’t come in such a heavy weight in the metal version.
