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

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.

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.
