6. I always liked her. She was so beautiful... even in her senior years.

I always liked her. She was so beautiful... even in her senior years. She aged gracefully and naturally. (If she ever had any nips and tucks... it was done VERY skillfully.)

...she was THE Bond Girl. She epitomized a certain kind of early- to mid-sixties woman who looked as though they could seduce you or kill you with their bare hands. Loved her.

14. I love that the video opens with that image of Blackman.

That scene, that face, that hair is what established her in my mind as the ultimate Bond Girl.
