You can turn off the charm. I'm immune.
~ Pussy rebuffing Bond's advances

Pussy Galore is a major antagonist (later anti-hero) of the 1959 James Bond novel Goldfinger and its 1964 film adaptation. She was Auric Goldfinger's personal pilot who served as the leader of her aviator team called the Flying Circus before being persuaded by Bond to turn against her employer.

She was portrayed by the late Honor Blackman.

Biography

Novel

In the novel, Galore runs a cat burglar gang called "Pussy Galore and her Acrobats". She is also revealed to be a lesbian until she falls in love with Bond.

She and her gang were enlisted by Goldfinger to aid in "Operation Grand Slam", an operation that would rob the U.S. gold depository at Fort Knox of 15 billion in gold bullion. However, she quits the job as she escapes with Bond after he kills Goldfinger and his henchman Oddjob.

Film

Bond: Who are you?
Galore: My name is Pussy Galore.
Bond: I must be dreaming.
~ Galore introduces herself to Bond

In the film, Galore is Goldfinger's personal pilot and commander of the Flying Cirus. Her main objective in the film is to have her flying circus dispense an airborne nerve gas over Fort Knox so that Goldfinger and his communist Chinese allies can break into the U.S. gold bullion depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky and detonate a nuclear weapon (created by Mr. Ling).

However, James Bond seduced Galore, convincing to abort her involvement in Goldfinger's plan. To that end, she had the Flying Circus to switch the nerve gas with a more harmless one while secretly alerting the U.S. government about Goldfinger's plot, thus allowing the U.S. Army to close in around Goldfinger and stop his operation.

Galore is last seen piloting Bond's plane until it was hijacked by Goldfinger, who intends to finish off both Bond and Galore. However, Goldfinger accidentally shatters a window after a brief fight against Bond, causing him to be sucked out to his death while Bond and Galore escape by parachute.

Trivia

  • Pussy is one of few villains to switch sides. She helps Bond in the end.
  • "Pussy" is a term referring to a cat (pussycat). It is also a slang term referring to a woman's vagina. In the Austin Powers series, a female hench-person of Dr. Evil's is named Alotta Fagina, a further pun on Pussy Galore's name.
  • In the novel, Pussy tells Bond that was molested as a child by her uncle. Blackman later revealed that she played the character as if she had been abused.
