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

Pussy Galore is the secondary antagonist turned anti-heroine of the James Bond film Goldfinger. She is the titular villain, Auric Goldfinger's personal pilot and henchman, who turns to the side of good after being persuaded by Bond. She is the secondary antagonist, deuteragonist, and secondary Bond girl of the film.

In the film she was portrayed by late Honor Blackman.

Film history

In the film, Pussy Galore is Auric Goldfinger's personal pilot and commander of "Pussy Galore's Flying Circus." 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. However, after having sex with Bond, she changes her mind, and allies Bond.

Bond, with Galore's help, foils Goldfinger's plan by persuading her not to spray the nerve gas over Fort Knox, thus allowing the U.S. Army to close in around Goldfinger and stop his operation.


  • Pussy is the first heroine of the series to start out as a villain, excluding Tatiana Romanova, who was never truly a villain.
  • In the novel, it is revealed that Pussy was sexually abused as a child by her uncle. While the film makes no such reference, Honor Blackman later said that she played Pussy as if she had been abused.
