Twenty-one movies, twenty-one femmes (at least). One marriage, one faux-wedding, several suggestive names. Some brighter than others. One actress an Oscar Winner who ALMOST had her Bond character spun off in a series of her own. By following the link you can get a glimpse of ten of the Best Bond Women and continue on to rank them in order of your preference. HOWEVER, I would like to take a moment to list my nominees for the WORST Bond Women. PLEASE, feel free to comment or include your choice. Or you can also add suggestions for the best. I can think of one that should have been listed.
- May Day & Stacy Sutton (both from the forgettable A View to a Kill. Grace Jones played the statuesque henchwoman of psychopath Max Zorin and former Charlie’s Angel Tanya Roberts played one of the least memorable bombshells)
- Agent Mary Goodnight (dumb name for a dim witted Secret Service agent in The Man With The Golden Gun)
- Dr. Christmas Jones (from The World Is Not Enough. Would anyone believe that Denise Richards could ever convincingly portray a nuclear physicist? The last line of the film is pricelessly dreadful. “I’ve always wanted to have Christmas in Turkey.”)
- Bibi Dahl (Olympic ice skating hopeful in For Your Eyes Only played by Lynn-Holly Johnson fresh from her starring role in Ice Castles. Total blonde eye candy. MUCH TOO YOUNG for the 54 year old Roger Moore. She was seen continuously throwing herself at him; thankfully, 007 kept his distance.)
I realize that the common concensus is that most Bond women ARE indeed eye candy but there have been many notable exceptions
