Entertainment Weekly’s Best & Worst Bond Girls

Posted in Best & Worst, Bond Girls with tags , , , on January 30, 2008 by Deborah Lipp

Riding the wave of Bond news, EW has put together a list of its best and worst Bond girls. (But not in time to get the name of the new movie into the article.)

There’s plenty to agree and disagree with in their choices. Way too much hate on Octopussy, in my opinion, and while I agree with them about Tiffany Case, most fans’ heads will explode at the thought of her on a “Best” list.

I’m sure that they did this same list when Eva Green was cast, but now I can’t find any record of blogging it. Anyway, it’s always fun to look at someone else’s list.

Safari Suit

Looking through my search terms (searches that brought people to this blog), I find the phrase “Sean Connery Safari Suit.”

As Pierce Brosnan would say: No, no, no!

Roger Moore wore a safari suit, not Connery! Notable examples appeared in TMWTGG and Octopussy.
