The Bond's Girls

Yesterday was James Bond’s 50th anniversary. I love these movies which I discovered late in life. Of course the Communist regime didn’t allow us to watch movies where the Soviet Union and its satellites appeared as the empire of evil. Nevertheless the Cinema Magazine I faithfully read showed pictures of various Bonds and especially of the glamorous Bond’s girls. You may agree with me that without these beautiful  girls, both good and bad James would probably loose some of his luster. Following there is a list of as many  I could find, a little pele mele.
The first two do not qualify as Bond’s girls. I would rather say that all the Bondses were somehow their boy. Judi Dench as M was at last the end of a long running stereotype that marred these movies. That of dependent, madly in love woman falling like  rain in the hero’s arms and bed. From this point of view the bad Bond’s girls are more interesting that the others. They had a hidden agenda.
