Sean Connery with Tatiana Romanova on the train after he encounters the Russian agent. He even slaps her (the 60s). In Goldfinger, he basically forces himself on Honour Blackman to win her over to the good side. She is named Pussy Galore. But that tactic doesn’t work with Fiona Volpe in Thunderball. Interestingly, Fatima Blush reverses that dynamic with Connery’s Bond in the remake, NSNA.
Roger Moore with Andrea Anders pressing for information. “I’ll break it if I have to,” when she complains about him hurting her arm. Then he basically date rapes her. It’s disturbing to watch with a #metoo lense. It was 1974. It’s creepy. None of that would fly today.
Dalton pushes Carey Lowell onto the bed and threatens her with a gun, but doesn’t hit her, slap her, or sleep with her after. (Does he ever? It’s implied at the end in the pool, but … )
Lazenby also slaps Theresa in the hotel in OHMSS. The women in the films seem to accept that this is just part of dealing with men in those times.
Bond doesn’t treat all the women that way, even in those same films. It’s usually when he distrusts them and in the world of spies, that’s true of any person an agent encounters.
Craig’s Bond evolved with the times but still exhibits those same character treats. He respects Camille and never initiates sex with her, nor does she ask. Strawberry Fields and Solange both consent to being seduced. Severine invites Bond to her boat and he invites himself into her shower, but neither seem to mind. I wouldn’t say Craig’s treatment of Monica Bellucci’s character is great. He does save her life though. And he doesn’t take advantage of Madeline when she’s obviously drunk. But it all goes back to Vesper. I think Bond looks suspiciously at all the subsequent women he meets, guarding against getting betrayed again. This is why Tracy’s death is so heartbreaking, especially in the book as it’s one of his last missions and he finally has his trust restored.
Dalton hints at that mistrust with Kara after Saunders is killed and he’s not sure he can trust her. His subtext in that scene is great. But also his warmth shown to her on the plane once she realizes Georgie has betrayed her. The Living Daylights is a great date movie, as far as Bond films go.
