Honor Blackman, ‘Pussy Galore’ dead at 94

Honor Blackman, UK actress born 22 August 1925; died 6 April 2020.

Honor Blackman was the original feisty, black-clad female agent in The Avengers. It made her a role model for an emerging generation of women and an object of desire for their men. Her characters were both sexy and intelligent and more than a match for their male co-stars. She was often compared to Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo, although one cannot imagine them throwing villains around like her Avengers character, Cathy Gale. BBC
