7For Goldfinger (1964), he obtained free use of a number of Commanche monoplanes for the movie from the Piper Aircraft Company. Russhon's principal role on the film was getting permission from four government agencies and the U.S. Army to film actual Fort Knox exteriors at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Contributing to his high-level contacts was the fact that he knew Pierre Salinger, the press secretary of President John F. Kennedy. Kennedy was a James Bond fan himself and had listed the Ian Fleming novel "From Russia With Love" previously in a top ten list.
8In Goldfinger (1964), the sign on Fort Knox airplane hangar during the air-raid says "Welcome, General Russhon". He was a military liaison and technical advisor for the film and this was an in-joke made by the production team.
