NEVER is unwatchable.

Yeah, yer rite, Bruce-O, we're woefully wrong and hang our head in shame (triplicate, even).



We definitely gotta get our eyes checked and unfogged ... razz

salutes ... smile

As long as you're winding up the NSNA women at this point, do you do Valerie Leon now or wait until "Spy Who Loved Me"? (She has the unique distinction of being the only Bond girl for both Sean and Roger, though in Spy she met her demise before anything could happen!)

To coin a phrase:

WHOA!



Dagnabbit, you're downright CLAIR(not Bloom)voyant! She's coming up this evening,



but even we weren't aware of that dynamite distinction you've just shared.

Way to go, Eric! ... big grin

Always happy to bring new enlightenment in these areas. smile

Next in our Never land of luscious ladies:



as Pat Fearing, the Shrublands sweetie.





Quite a different contrast from Molly Peters' incarnation in Thunderball



but she has her own wholly unique attributes,



oui? ...

Mind you,



Kim Basinger’s Domino is hardly in the same elegant league as Claudine Auger yet, having said that, we’ll also say this:



she was richly ripe in her own right. wink

For our dinero (not Robert), there were two truly inspiring casting choices Connery commanded in NSNA – first the introduction to American audiences of Klaus Maria Brandauer



as Largo,



then Barbara Carrera’s marvelously



flamboyant,



seductively stylish,



silkily soaked,



all-around beautifully buttressed



and smoothly serpentine



Fatima Blush. She had the kind of incredibly colorful, gloriously gratifying, enchantingly evil aura of divinely delicious decadence only Famke Janssen’s Xenia Onnatop in GOLDENEYE has ever really captured since the days of that powerhouse named Paluzzi.



Which is why she ranks fourth behind Luciana (with the second and third still to be shared) as our favorite villainess



(considering she’s playing the same updated role, this is hardly surprising, no?) ... wink

MARYAM D'ABO and CAREY LOWELL.

Lucky Timothy Dalton I say!! :-)

Just so you know, Spy, our next to final Bond entry will be on those two (there's a specific reason for it, if you haven't guessed already) and Mr. Dalton's tenure in Bondage (concluding with the current regime - and, yes, Eric, Roger's on tap after Pierce ...

For Pierce’s introduction,







was not only fetching in a spirited contemporary way



but had a becoming kind of quiet intensity that bespoke not only intelligence, passion, sensitivity and independence (her you could believe as a scientist as opposed to the insulting joke of casting that cropped up two films ahead).

In short, the long of it is this: we rate rather highly on the Bondian scale of seductiveness.



And her current incarnation



ain’t nuthin’ to sneeze at, either!

Once in an inspired while, they get the casting royally right, with an actress who merges with her character to such satisfying extent, we’re left in rapt admiration.



Such is so with Famke Janssen‘s



high-flying,



bold,



stylized



supremely cunning,



beautiful black widow wonder, Xenia Onnatop.



She has an audacious, out-there sexuality



she gloriously takes uninhibited glee in.



She also has one of the most delightfully devilish moments that never fails to crack us up during the sequence when Bond commandeers another train to challenge the one she and the rest of the adversaries are on. “He’s going to ram us!” she murmurs with orgasmic optimism.



She’s no slouch in the action department, either, diving into her scenes with unabashed energy and intensive drive.



That’s why Famke ranks Numero Three on that Virtuous Villaness List.

Izabella Scorupco is my favorite Bond girl post-1983.

Nuthin' wrong with your appreciative orbs,



HooRaq! ... wink

It also must be importantly mentioned that Goldeneye also introduced two other pivotal women in Meester Bee’s life,

Samantha Bond as Moneypenny





(she also did a stage production of Macbeth with Goldeneye villain Sean Bean some years later.



And, of course,



’s no-nonsense M



And the torch



passeth ... wink

iirc 007 didn't bonk her in the film; in the TRADITIONAL sense that is. smile

In case she was overlooked:

Christina Cole (CASINO ROYALE-2006) as the Ocean Club receptionist.
