Retrospace Trading Cards #5: Bond Girls
Pussy Galore is perhaps the finest example of a so-called "punny name" in pop culture. Not since Dickens has the punny name game been played so well.... and just when you think it can't be repeated, they release a Bond movie called Octopussy.
Little did the public know, there was going to be a whole slew of double entrendre Bond Girls in a never-made Bond film called Never Dream of Dying. It was to be released in 1978, but it was scrapped and Moonraker was released the following year in its place. It's a widely held belief that it never made it to theaters because of some hardcore sexual situations in the film. The director, Tinto Brass, sought to capitalize on the disco-sex culture of the late seventies, but perhaps went a bit too far.
EON Productions chalked it up as a loss. Lesson learned. All evidence that it was ever made never made it out of MGM studios; merchandising never had a chance to hit the shelves.... except these cards. I present to you the ultra rare Never Dream of Dying Bond Girls Cards. Stare in awe at the only remaining physical evidence of the Bond film that never was.
