Pamela Ann Davy.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0205853/

Indicated as Born: 1939 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

This is an absolute fib. In fact, she is older and I think, on the basis of my research, she was born in Melbourne.

There's an early Honor Blackman film being shown on the excellent Talking pictures channel tomorrow at 11.30 called Diamond city, made in 1949. It also stars David Farrar & Diana Dors. Set in the diamond fields of South Africa, a lawman is trying to maintain a semblance of law and order.

I watched Diamond City (1949) starring Honor Blackman recently. I have to say it was the worst film I have ever seen her in. I do remember her being interviewed and she bemoaned many of her early roles. It was a pretty awful role she had to play here, very saccharine with not much depth. It must have been Manna from heaven when she got the part of Cathy Gale. Post Avengers, Honor's roles improved significantly. Pussy Galore is the best Bond girl (along with Tracy Di Vicenzo). She was also terrific in Life at the top and Shalako, and practically stole the show in Dagger of the mind, my favourite Columbo movie.

As I mentioned once before, she is great in the Danger Man 1960 episode 'Colonel Rodriguez' as her realistic portrayal adds great suspense. We're watching the Cathy episodes this year (just watched one) and Honor is so good.
