X-Treme Flash In The Pan Babes - 1960's Edition


Tania Mallet aka Tilly Masterson in Goldfinger. Her entire movie career consisted of showing up just long enough to get whacked by Oddjob. A shame, too. I know that Honor Blackman, as Pussy Galore, is considered one of the heavyweights among Bond Girls, but her voice has always grated on me. I'd have much rather seen more of Mallet.

Wow. I've somehow managed to miss her scenes every time I run across this on cable, but except for the hair color she's a *perfect* match for the book character.

I actually have a draft post sitting in MT in which Oddjob is featured . . . strange. I need a picture of Bond villain minions (jumpsuit guys) milling about a lair in order to complete the post.

I was gonig to life a pic from my Dr. No DVD, but haven't had the time. This weekend, perhaps.

Ideal for the part or not, she's definitely easy on the eyes.
