(Daily Mail)   Churchill's favorite spy was a ringer for Kate Winslet, a grenade-wielding Polish beauty queen, the real-life inspiration for a Bond girl, and so charming a Nazi patrol dog disobeyed its master for her. Your dog wants pussy galore   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 50

FTFA: She was expelled from convent school at the age of 14 for setting light to a priest's cassock as he conducted mass.

Extra hero points for that too (assuming he was doing something skeevy).

Kate Winslet? No. Not even close. Cate Blanchett maybe.

She's not bad looking. She's a blank canvass. Add some slutty, er, smokey eye make-up and a hair straightener, and she could have looked quite similar to the posed Eva Green.

If she looked like Eva Green, as a spy she couid have single handedly stopped WW2.

Looking at her pictures, I was wondering why they had pictures of some other woman instead of the Kate Winslet lookalike. Did they just pick a random pretty celebrity to say she looked like?

"The spy inspired the character of Bond girl Vesper Lynd, played by sultry French actress Eva Green"

How soon they forget.

She is pretty, there is no denying that. I think in her era she would be considered more pretty than under our own modern standards of beauty.

But as men over the age of thirty come to realize, "sexy" is only party in one's physical appearance. Attitude, wit, and a certain ineffable something can make a physically unremarkable woman become the center of attention in a crowded room. Physically Mata Hari's face would be considered "cute" at best, but it was her attitude that made her one of the greatest sex symbols of her time.

And it is not a matter of "low standards," it is a matter of different standards. Half the women held up as icons of beauty now would be considered skeletal or too undeveloped to men back then. Some of the square jaws favored in women now would be considered manish back then.

I think our world would be a better place if more men realized this at an earlier age. Attitude is one of the sexiest things in a woman.

My wife was a cute, petite brunette with freckles when she was 25. When she shared her opinon, men would stop chewing their food to listen. Married men would circle her at parties--our careers came with cocktail parties. And younger men still pay her far too much attention. Twenty years later her attitude is mixing with wisdom...good lord I gotta go.

Chase attitude, gents. Chase attitude.

The opposite is also true. see Pelelope Cruz.

I'd marry this women once I finish building my time machine. We would have several spy kids and our own show on Disney. We would travel the world killing Nazis and Daemoner before settling down on the Moon to live out eternity.


Or she'd probably just kill me.

bingo! how i loathe seeing so many gladly accept someone elses standards. hollywood movies, TV shows and magazines are just entertainment. people should learn what they personally like and hold their own standards high, not someone elses.

mrs.Kritter thinks Sarah Jessica Parker is 'pretty' because the TV tells her so. dammit that gives me the doosh chills when she says shiat like that.

As she did so, she hummed the tune of Frankie And Johnny, a hit she and Francis had often sung together to keep up their sprits.

onyxruby: Impressive woman, immortalized as the Bond girl. Reading her bio was fascinating, and I have a hard time thinking of a greater tribute to her that could be made.


I agree she was an impressive woman. Thing is that in the novel Casino Royale, Vesper is an utterly useless character who does nothing but have dinner with Bond, allow him to explain his plan (acting as a vehicle of exposition), and get captured so that Bond has to go and rescue her (acting as a plot complication). And, from the moment he meets her, Bond's inner thoughts are about how utterly useless it is to have a woman involved in spy business.

Hardly a glowing tribute.

/Not sure about the movie Vesper
 
2012-10-07 11:54:32 AM
Is this the one who got stabbed to death?

DoughyGuy: Hardly a glowing tribute.


I won't argue your point on the character in the book. My point was more of a general inspiration for the bond girl character in general, vs that particular bond girl. Heck, reading some of her exploits, you might well call her inspiration for some of what James Bond did.

she's cute. way better looking than Eva Green. but

irrationalgeographic.files.wordpress.com

was an awesome movie, Ursula Andress played the character inspired by tfa-lady, and there never ever should have been a remake.

doglover: She had milk bones in her undies.


Either that; or the guard dog was a boxer. Boxers were used quite extensively as guard dogs in the First and Second World War. If you've ever approached a house that has one; you know why. If not; let's just say, they get very loud, very quickly. They were used so much that the breed very nearly went extinct; due to the boxers' loyal and tenacious nature; they often put themselves in the line of fire to protect their masters.

The major downfall of boxers as guard dogs is their gental nature and tendancies to bond quickly with people, especially women.

/ having owned a plethora of boxers; I can tell you without reservation, they are big babies and they are scared of their own shadows.

You can have your Pussy Galores. Best "Bond girl" and as the most kick-ass, closest to the spirit of Christine Granville?

Michelle Yeoh in Tomorrow Never Dies. She was also awesome in Supercop and (of course) Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
