Goodnight, Moneypenny

Lois Maxwell died yesterday in Australia at the age of 80. She'd been battling cancer. Maxwell was the first Miss Moneypenny in the 007 movies, playing opposite three Bonds and, as I recall, at least two M's in well over a dozen films. And she'll always be the real Moneypenny to those of us who started watching the Bond franchise way back when it first launched in the early 1960s. I'll miss you, Moneypenny, even though you were a bureaucratic, paper-pushing instrument of the British Empire.
