Merry Christmas!

Wonderful humor, Fred. I guess Pussy Galore took the best spy chick name, followed by Dragon Lady. It’s been all downhill since then. Still, you’d think the chicoms could come up with something just a tad more romantic than Fang. Instead, we get the schlocky Walmart version.


Poon Fang is just a raunchier version of Pussy Galore.

Merry Christmas, all.


Kilo 411, Optimax,

Fang is a very effective intelligence agent for communist China who did great service to her country while helping now congressman Swalwell do damage to his. The other woman you mention is a fictional character from a James Bond spy thriller.

I saw the original Goldfinger movie on the huge screen of the Balaban and Katz Marbro Theatre in its debut run in 1964. http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/991 No one who saw Honor Blackman in her most famous role https://nypost.com/2020/04/06/honor-blackman-james-bonds-pussy-galore-dead-at-94/ is likely to forget her, and the early Bond movies were so good maybe some people thought they were about real people, but I’m not one of them.

As for the fabulous agent Fang, yes, I’m sure she’s a marvel, and can kick both of our asses while flying through the air with the greatest of ease and texting.

Woops, the Marbro closed the year before Goldfinger arrived in Chicago. Must have seen it at the State, 2 miles west down Madison Street from the Marbro. Not quite as grand as the Marbro, but with nearly 2,000 seats, it still dwarfed most of today's multiplex theaters. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/8a/9a/89/8a9a89c27d08d0ff9d61328e5eb0fc08--chicago-tribune.jpg


Kilo, I saw Dr. No at a drive-in and fell in love with Ursula Andress. I was 12. Just watched Marnie directed by Hitchcock and starring Tippi Hedren and Sean Connery. Strange movie but good.

Even before the Poon Fang revelation, I thought it strange Swalwell kept promoting the Russia hoax long after it had been disproven while siding with China.

You and millions of others. She made you glad to be a man, or about to be one.
