"James Bond" (1950s, 1960s)

"Bond reminds me rather of Hoagy Carmichael, but there is something cold and ruthless", Vesper Lynd in Ian Fleming's "Casino Royale" (Glidrose, 1953). "[Bond is] certainly good-looking...Rather than like Hoagy Carmichael in a way. That black hair falling down over the right eyebrow. Much the same bones. But there was something a bit cruel in the mouth, and the eyes were cold", Gala Brand in Ian Fleming's "Moonraker" (Glidrose, 1955).
