Happy Birthday Honor Blackman


    Born of this day 90 years ago and still going strong is Bond girl extraordinaire Honor Blackman.  Although it probably seems more accurate to call her a "Bond woman" as she was 38 years old at the time of GOLDFINGER and most likely was one of  the only Bond female counterparts that was older then the actor portraying 007.
    Before GOLDFINGER she was known to British audiences as Cathy Gale in THE AVENGERS and I think she's wonderful in Roy Ward Baker's Titanic drama A NIGHT TO REMEMBER from 1958. She also made for a beautiful goddess Hera in Ray Harryhausen's CLASH OF THE TITANS. A drive-in re-release of GOLDFINGER at some point in the 60's is one of my earliest childhood movie memories and Honor will always be my favorite Bond girl of any age.
