Book history

In the novel, Pussy Galore is the only woman in America that runs a gang. Initially a trapeze artist her group of women, "Pussy Galore and her Acrobats" were unsuccessful and were later trained as cat burglars. Her group grew into a lesbian organization known as "The Cement Mixers." In fact, Galore is a lesbian throughout most of the novel until the end of the book, where she falls in love with Bond.

Her group is enlisted by Goldfinger to aid in "Operation Grand Slam," an operation that, if successful, would rob the U.S. gold bullion depository at Fort Knox of fifteen billion in gold bullion.

After "Grand Slam" fails, she escapes with Bond after he kills Goldfinger and his henchman Oddjob.

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.

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 one of few villains to switch sides. She helps Bond in the end.
  • "Pussy" is a term referring to a cat (pussycat). It is also a slang term referring to a woman's vagina. In the Austin Powers series, a female hench-person of Dr. Evil's is named Alotta Fagina, a further pun on Pussy Galore's name.
