What Would Bond Do?
Thursday April 27th 2017

Luciana Paluzzi “Thunderball”

 

Fiona: Some men just don’t like to be driven.
Bond: No, some men don’t like to be taken for a ride.
Paluzzi’s role might have been short but memorable in Thunderball playing the Spectre assassin Viona Volpe.
Bond[after making love to the evil Fiona Volpe] My dear girl, don’t flatter yourself. What I did this evening was for King and country. You don’t think it gave me any pleasure, do you?
Fiona: But of course, I forgot your ego, Mr. Bond. James Bond, the one where he has to make love to a woman, and she starts to hear heavenly choirs singing. She repents, and turns to the side of right and virtue… [she steps on Bond’s foot] … but not this one!
Bond:[to himself] Well, you can’t win them all.
Unfortunately Bond uses Fiona as a human shield but it would have been interesting to see if Bond could have turned her.
In 1964 she played the villainess in another espionage-based Ian Fleming creation, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. She appeared as the seductive THRUSH agent Angela in the first season episode “The Four Steps Affair” and in the movie version of the show’s pilot episode, To Trap a Spy.
