Critics are mixed and audience feedback wildly disparate over Quantum of Solace, but while you are formulating your opinion or, like me, waiting for the initial crowds to disperse before taking in the second Daniel Craig entry, why not give a ‘flix to the Bonds of the illustrious past? Better yet why not look at their hot babes? And better yet, the supporting babes–the ones who usually die, or oft times they turn out to be evil henchmen, seductress-spies and/or the super villain of the film themselves!
The first such babe appears in Dr. No. Zena Marshall plays a sinister-spy secretary, Miss Taro. A buxom, sumptuous babe in the early Playboy tradition, Ms. Marshall oozes libidinal treachery as Taro, but she’s an amateur in the spy game and James is a professional. After surviving the ambush set for him en route to a booty call at her hilltop chalet, Bond “takes what’s coming to him” as a survivor’s fee–letting her think she’s stalling him for her second round of assassins to arrive. He’s aware of her plan though, and after the post-coitus haze has cleared, he hands her over to the authorities and calmly waits in her darkened bedroom for the next cockblocking killer.
