So sad to hear of the death of Honor Blackman…a great actress and she certainly put Bond women on the map.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

She was such an icon in both The Avengers and Goldfinger, among so much other great work - so sad to hear of her passing.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

Wow, incredibly sad news. She was certainly one of my top Bond girls—beautiful as well as strong, confident and no-nonsense. RIP Honor  ajb007/heart

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

Sad news. She was probably the first Bond girl I ever knew of, and I think she made more of an impression than any other has, along with Ursula Andress.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

RIP Honor Blackman, one of my favourite leading ladies from the Bond series. Also, she was the only Bond girl that I ever saw in real life, when she was the compère at a Bond music concert that I went to in the UK back in 2007.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

That's sad news. Strangely, I was only thinking about her the other day and that she was coming 95 this year. Honor Blackman was an iconic Bond actress as Pussy Galore. I also liked her role in an episode of my other favourite show Columbo. I also remember her appearing in The Upper Hand when I was growing up.

Re: Bond Alumni: Tributes and Updates

I still think it's funny that it was a video store girl who introduced me to the James Bond series. I was far too young and many things were over my head. I think a Bond director mentioned once how some jokes kids wouldn't get. Or that if they did, they would be a bit too old for their own good. But Pussy Galore was one of those things for me. I just thought that was her name, I didn't get it till years later. Now I have to be kind of careful saying that Pussy Galore is one of my top 5 or so Bond Girls in public.

I thought Pussy Galore was a cool character that could fly planes and had a whole team of female pilots. Plus she was tough and could use a gun and throw Bond around.

I still have a bunch of Honor Blackman's movies and TV shows that I want to check out.

RIP Diana Rigg 1938 – 2020

sad to see Honour Blackman at the top of the page and Diana Rigg at the bottom...



EDIT: I am sure we all wish she really were just having a rest...
but here is her final scene from the Avengers, which was also a rather poignant farewell...

Enjoyed that, thanks for posting. Got to say Steed, much as I like the new girl, the one that got away was better!
