    RIP Honor Blackman

    She was 93.

    I can see below that I may have been misinformed and she was actually 94.

    One of the best Bond girls, IMHO.

    Yes indeed! And I read she was a republican and turned down a gong so as not to be a hypocrite. Good for her!

    I remember seeing Goldfinger the first time and thinking ‘phwoar’. I must have been about 5. Always had good taste! - RIP

    Lauren Bacall and Honor Blackman- two smouldering beauties who will never be matched again.

    RIP Honor.

    I was in high school when Dr. No premiered. Seeing her I remember thinking, "Oh yeah, I would!" even though she was only four years younger than my mother!

    You're thinking of Ursula Andress, Honor Blackman was in Goldfinger. But yes, your observation would still apply

    Sorry, I meant Goldfinger. I was a H.S. senior for Goldfinger, and a sophomore for Dr. No. I would have to say that Ursula had a more profound effect on me!

    Was she annoyed or did she like it?
