Bond Girls Home | Bio | Pics & Clips

Appears in:


Actress:

  • At age 37, she was one of the oldest Bond Girls to appear in a movie (with Maud Adams in Octopussy).
  • She was born in 1925, making her the elder of the Bond girls in 2014, at age 89.
  • With Diana Rigg, she is one of the two Bond girls to be older than the actor playing 007 in the movie (she was born in 1925 while Connery was born in 1930). In all subsequent films, Bond actors were always older than Bond girls.
  • Blackman made a name for herself as Cathy Gale, the first notable female assistant to Patrick Macnee on the classic British action show The Avengers. MacNee would eventually also join the Bond franchise in A View to a Kill, while two of her more notable successors (Diana Rigg and New Avengers girl Joanna Lumley) would both appear in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Who she is:


  • She is the leader of a Flying Circus and plays an instrumental role in Auric Goldfinger's daring raid on Fort Knox.
  • P*ssy Galore is quite different her literary counterpart. While it is not mentioned in the film, she is a lesbian in the book. This is hinted when Bond tries to charm her, to which she replies "I'm immune."

How she and Bond meet:

  • Bond regains consciousness onboard Goldfinger's personal jet to find P*ssy sardonically appraising him, leading to this classic exchange:
  • Bond: Who are you?"
  • P*ssy: My name is P*ssy Galore.
  • Bond: (looks away and smiles) I must be dreaming!

    Defining dialogues:

    • "You can turn off the charm, I'm immune!" (in response to Bond's attempts to charm her)
    • "I'm a damn good pilot. Period."
    • "I'm strictly the outdoor type."
    • "Skip it. I'm not interested. Let's go."

    Vital statistics:

    • 5' 6" 37C-23-35

    How she helps to save the day:

    • Although appearing to guide her Flying Circus in the distribution of the toxic nerve gas over Fort Knox for Goldfinger's "Operation Grand Slam", she actually replaces the gas with a less toxic variety after Bond manages to seduce her and make her change her mind.
    • P*ssy also informs the CIA about Goldfinger's plan allowing them to put an end to her employer's scheme.

    Bikini moment:

    • None, but she rocked some kicking gear in the movie!

    Interesting trivia:

    • Worried about censorship, producers considered changing P*ssy Galore's name to "Kitty Galore". They kept the original name when British newspapers began to refer to Honor Blackman as "P*ssy" in the lead up to production. And they say there's no bad PR...
    • Compared to some of the harder surfaces which Blackman had to use her judo skills on The Avengers, she found it a greater relief that her "fight" with Sean Connery was on a much softer hay surface.
    • For promotional purposes Honor Blackman wore a gold finger over her original finger while doing interviews. This meant that she had to have bodyguards while on tour.

    Bond babe name ranking:

    • #1

    You know the scene where Pussy Galore's flying circus is dropping the "gas" everywhere. Well I'm pretty sure that those planes aren't air, air tight. So why would Mrs. Galore agree to using the planes to drop the gas?
