I'm so very jealous you got a note from Joanna! Good on you though!

Question: How did Honor Blackman fit in your mailbox? Wink

And just to think that if Sydney Newman hah had his way, Blackman would not have been cast as Mrs Gale. It is safe to say that it was largely thanks to her that the show not only survived but became the cult show of the day. A legend, both the show and Blackman. She literally made tv history with her role in The Avengers.

Yeah, if Ian Hendry had stayed I doubt the show would have lasted much longer and there certainly wouldn't be very much discussion about it. Honor Blackman was the best thing that happened to The Avengers during those early years and she set the precedent for the rest of Steed's partners.

Blackman: 'Pussy Galore was no bimbo'
http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/a132659/blackman-pussy-galore-was-no-bimbo.html

Honor Blackman has laughed off claims that her James Bond character Pussy Galore was a bimbo, describing her as a "strong feminist".

Blackman told the TV Times that her Goldfinger Bond girl didn't just "fall flat on her back" for 007.

She said: "In so many of the films, the girls just looked at James and fell flat on their backs. Yet Pussy Galore was a career woman - a pilot who had her own air force, which was very impressive. She was never a bimbo."

Though Blackman described her co-star Sean Connery as "the sexiest thing on two legs", she confessed that Pussy Galore was "a bit stupid" to sleep with the secret agent in the film's closing moments.

"Pussy's flying a plane, so she's got to be a strong feminist, but then she collapses into Bond's arms at the end. Deary me. Unfortunately women do do that. We're good at our jobs, but if we fall in love, we're a bit stupid."

The new James Bond adventure, Quantum Of Solace, is released in cinemas on October 31.

I've heard her say that before. And I have to agree, most Bond girls just fall for his charm instantly, but Pussy Galore didn't. At first she really seemed to despise him.

I have just found a photo of Honor and Sean Connery that I had never seen before. I would upload if I remembered how.
Maybe you have seen it? It's not actually from 'Goldfinger' but they are smiling at each other face-to face.

Perhaps you clicked on 'resize image' and it was on 100x100 (avatar size)? You should probably uncheck the resize image box.
Anyway, gorgeous picture Very Happy

Looks like the same shoot from the cover of The Pinewood Story.

She said: "In so many of the films, the girls just looked at James and fell flat on their backs. Yet Pussy Galore was a career woman - a pilot who had her own air force, which was very impressive. She was never a bimbo."

In the Book, Fleming had Ms.Galore, to be a bit of a Lesbian..

And the film certainly skated along those issues, but being '63-'64,
that sort of stuff, really wasn't upfront and in the open..

I always tend to think that Ms.Galore, was simply a very strong
and indie woman..who fended for herself, thought for herself, and
was in business for HERSELF....


Perhaps, if they re made GOLDFINGER today, ( I hope not )

What Fleming felt and wrote about Pussy Galore, would be upfront
in the film....maybe not..

it's hard to improve on a classic Bond film

That was on last night over here, too. I just caught Honor's intro. Sean Connery's expression when she introduces herself is just priceless.
