Lois Maxwell was the first actress to portray Jane Moneypenny and boasts a total of 14 Bond films under her name. Many fans agree that she was the definitive Miss Moneypenny.
Typical badinage from the film Dr. No -
Miss Moneypenny: James! Where have you been? I've been searching all over London for you.
[Picks up phone.]
Miss Moneypenny: 007 is here sir.
[Slaps Bond's hand away from the papers on her desk.]
James Bond: Moneypenny! What gives?
Miss Moneypenny: Me, given an ounce of encouragement. You've never taken me to dinner looking like this. You've never taken me to dinner, period.
James Bond: I would, you know. Only I would be court-martialed for tampering with government property.
Miss Moneypenny: Flattery will get you nowhere... but don't stop trying.
Lois Maxwell has died in Fremantle, Western Australia, aged 80.
