The Very First Bond Girl Has Died at 87

Actress Linda Christian, the woman first credited as one of James Bond's on-screen bombshells also known as "Bond Girls," has died at the age of 87.

If her striking features and curvy body don't spark any memories in your brain (if they spark anything else in any other part of your body, please keep it to yourself), that's because she didn't appear in any of the big screen Bond films that have since become immortal classics. She played the leggy love interest in the very first James Bond film, one that even out-dates the 1962 blockbuster Dr. No starring Sean Connery.

An episode of the CBS dramatic playhouse series Climax! gets credit for broadcasting the first James Bond film. Their 1952 production of Ian Fleming's debut Bond novel Casino Royale starring actor Barry Nelson as 007 and Christian as Bond's old flame Valerie Mathis, a character based on Vesper Lynd and Rene Mathis who were the two original Bond girl characters from Fleming's book.

Hopefully, aspiring and subsequent Bond girls across the nation will lower their skimpy outfits to "half mast" in honor of her memory.
