One of my pet peeves is that film makers rarely seem to represent the real difficulties of handling heavy objects.
As I recall, the impossibility to carting away so much gold was why the filmmakers of Goldfinger changed from the book's plot of stealing the contents of Fort Knox to irradiating it to reduce the world supply of the stuff and thereby make Goldfinger's own gold more valuable.
