The Complete History of Bond Villains

Pussy Galore

Appeared In: Goldfinger (1964)
Played By: Honor Blackman
Diabolical Weapon: Judo
Killed By: Survives

With a name about as subtle as a sledgehammer, Pussy Galore is usually first on the list of best Bond girls yet. Beauty aside, she started the film as an agent of Goldfinger, working with him to irradiate the gold in Fort Knox. But after being seduced by 007, she switches sides and helps Bond stop his plot.

Honor Blackman, of Avengers fame, had the perfect mixture of sex appeal and villainy, as she convinced nearly everyone that she was irredeemably evil. Interestingly enough, Pussy was written as a lesbian in the original Goldfinger novel, but there isn’t much in the film to suggest that. And if she was, we’re pretty sure Bond could still turn her.
