Keeping the Attractive Moore End Up Department:



Mind yu, if you blinked, you might’ve missed Daughter Deborah’s stint -



but it’s awfully obvious she, ah, Moore than inherited the family genes (as opposed to jewels) for glamorous good looks.



Yep, we’d figure Poppa hadda be awfully proud smile

As noted before, Halle is one of the few Bond women of the last couple decades to rate high on my top echelon list. smile

Halle is one of the rare few (IMO) who look more attractive with hair that short.

As juicy Jinx, Halle made for quite the live action figure. She’s got (virtually) It all any Bond Babe (or appreciator) could want.



With everything nature so beautifully bequeathed her



who cares if her acting expertise isn’t quite up



to her other



galvanizin’ gifts? ... wink

In the Number Five Sexy Slot of Our Favorite Villainess Sweepstakes:



Rosamund Pike’s Emma Frost - Passionately Hot Ice Department:

She started out, at first glance, rather shyly cute and almost school marm-ish (English style)



Confidently camouflaged and continued her subterreanean charade



even, ah, up to and including her obligatory boudoir Bond-tism of fire before snagging (not shagging) the best-acted sequence in the entire film



with pin-point precision and anchored acting (with no small amount of equally impressive skill by Toby Stephens) – and, no, we didn’t see it coming AT all.



Touche,



Toots.



Whilst, elsewhere,



she’s every inch



as stylish



and elegant in effortlessly



contemporary fashion as anyone could wondrously wish.



As one of our namesakes might profoundly purr: Whoa! wink

Alison Doody



certainly has one of the



more intriguing (to say nothing of imaginative) Bond names



Jenny Flex (and, manoman, she does cut one helluva heavenly figure in that outfit, no?).



Now, if you don’t believe us, see if two unknowns named Spielberg and Lucas can convince ya, seeing as how (right after this) they cast her as the love interest for both Father Connery and Son Ford in that little seen art curio, Whatsisname and the Lust – we mean, Last Crusade.



As someone once said: Beauty may be only skin deep, but, dammit, it’s still Beauty wink

Fiona Fullerton: Classic



English



Stature
Department -



And in Real



(as opposed to Reel) Life:



the ladee's gotta a lively spirit



and durn distinctive, um, demeanor(s) ... smile

Fiona Fullerton made me take notice in the otherwise blah AVTAK. Even then, a minor Bond Chick was an attention getter! Don't forget Alison "Jenny Flex" Doody, either!

Definitely Not Yer Conventional Bond Beauty



But
Department:



surely isn’t, yet her May Day handled the transformation from villainess to ally



with an intensity she didn’t have to manufacture or force.



Actually, the only aspect of her appearance we hold the film-makers (not her) insultingly accountable for is the atrocious "love scene" they saddled her with (the singular instance in all the Bond films we find utterly offensive in the extremis). Even the "Fetch my shoes" bit with Quarrel from Dr. No pales in comparison to this odious bit (evidently someone’s insensitively idiotic idea of the snarling, hot Exotic. roll eyes

It’s no accident you’ve never seen any vanilla actress handed this horrendous episode. And don’t insult our intelligence by telling us we’re over-reacting to racial overtones that aren’t there – we're NOT, there is: and if you wanna ignore either the implication or possibility, then that’s your rightful ostrich-like choice).



At any Bondian rate,



Ms. Jones has an overall style it’s hard to ignore -



an imaginative creativity both as individual



and performer smile

I won't deny that you have a point. The love scene was offensive, with the kind of "primitive" stereotype performance they had her give. Although she might have been all for it, for all we know. Artists often have bad judgement and lack objectivity, and Grace Jones in my view is FULLY susceptible to these failings.

But I would add that the aspect of her love scene that made me even more uncomfortable was the mismatch of putting her with an aged and decrepit Roger Moore. Who believes that Mayday would find him hot? Tanya Roberts had this gentle, submissive quality that made her seem very understanding, like maybe she could have a thing for older men. Jones did not come off that way, and her show of lust for Moore was unconvincing to the point of farce.

Also, Bond girls should be pretty, and Jones was (at best) a handsome man.

'BYE (and you can finally remove that Beretta upside your head forcing you to visit if your sensibilities are too delicate for this arena of assessment.)

[ Curious, too, how those residually consistent in sowing such cheerful "disenchantment" are so easily taken aback from others simply pointing out something truly disenchanting. We suggest yu check out the reflective mirror once inna while, bucko. ]



As for your maturely articulate response, Zap, it's indisputable Mr. Moore had long since passed his Bond Sell By Date but - in light of the Hollywood penchant for actors approaching grandfatherly status still bedding numerous babes young enough to be their daughters - he's hardly the only example that elicits shudders.

And you may be right re Ms. Jones' alleged complicity (we're hardly an authority - interested or otherwise - having only been exposed to her via this film) but can you conceivably imagine them trying to pull that kinda scene with



and actually having her AGREE to do it (after raising justifiable unholy hell)? ... eek

Most Beleaguered Bond Woman Award Department:

hasta (almost unanimously) go to Tanya Roberts,



whose helpless stint as Stacy Sutton has caused



many cries of embarrassed havoc on her behalf. (Pray don’t forget she didn’t write such an embarrassingly vapid part, just appeared in it).



She’s certainly picturesque enuff



and has her own low-key but attractive illumination



to, uh, rescue her from any lasting recriminations.



(Like, ya want unvirtuous vapidness? Try that really ridiculous "scientist" Denise Richards didn’t impersonate in TWINE).



Nah, Ms. Roberts has nothing to be ashamed of (at ALL).



Would we could offer the same complimentary assessment re the lacklustre film itself (John’s thoroughly galvanizing and kinetic score aside) embarrassment
