RIP Honor Blackman

"I must be dreamin'...."

She might've been the oldest Bond Girl,
wait no, that is Monica Bellucci in Spectre, but that was a Bond wo-man, and a widow too .),
but she made HIStory, back there in 1964 and GOLDFINGER
The name is/was and always will be Pussy Galore, and that's plenty :)
Mrs. Honor Blackman was very English and very 38 years at the time, which would made her a veeery mature woman in Bond's swingin sixties world !
She might have died also the oldest Bond woman, on April 6th 2020, at 94 !!!
She was also a fierce  Avenger, that is before those Marvel comics...she left the series to to Bond and that is her major legacy, but lookie here:
Blackman learned judo for the role. The experience helped spur her to co-write the 1966 book Honor Blackman’s Book of Self-Defence, a book that, as NBC News notes, was “among the first books about martial arts aimed at young women.”
obituary in Rolling Stone, here

well, now...:(
