No, I am not going to make you read a blog about all the beautiful women who portrayed love interests (not sure love is the right word here) for James Bond. The women are only there for the men who watch the movies. But the real action is Bond, James Bond.
Yes, I am a Bond girl. I love James Bond.
007 is the type of man who women love and men want to be. But seriously, why?
What is the draw of Bond. Of course, he does have the look—sophisticated and debonair. He knows how to shoot a gun, blow up things, and get the girl. He doesn’t look too bad in a tuxedo either. Sigh….
So what’s not to love?
I went to see Skyfall last weekend with my son. I won’t spoil the movie but I have to say it was my favorite of the Bond franchise. The way Daniel Craig portrays Bond is so different. He is much darker than the other Bonds, which I think makes him so much more interesting. And he is Daniel Craig. Sigh….
Throughout the years, I’ve seem almost all of the Bond movies. Having two sons makes it inevitable, I think. But as I wrote this, I discovered something, or rather someone, I never knew, and his name was George Lazenby. Apparently, George (pictured here on the right) started in one Bond movie, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969. I had no idea. Now I have to find this movie and see it.
So are you a Bond girl (or a fan if you are a male reader)?
Who is your favorite actor who portrayed him? If you don’t enjoy the movies, I must know why.
