1. Bonding with Golden Girl Shirley Eaton

    By Devin Zydel on 2006-05-27

    James Bond fans have a chance to meet with Bond girl Shirley Eaton today, 27 May 2006, for a meet and greet, book signing, showing of Goldfinger, and more.

    The Daily News Journal reports that golden girl Shirley Eaton, who starred as the ill-fated Jill Masteron in the 1964 007 film, Goldfinger will be attending the Murfreesboro/Rutherford County Center for the Arts in Tennesse at 6:30 PM, 27 May, to meet with fans, sign copies of her book Golden Touch, An Intimate Diary of Poems and host a reception which will be followed by a showing of Goldfinger.

    According to Eaton, ‘I was only in Goldfinger for five minutes maybe 42 years ago, and I still get fan mail. But I needed to be stable more than I needed to be famous. I’m so much more than the shallowness of show business… I fulfill myself. When I look at the photos of myself back then, I feel like ‘Wasn’t she gorgeous?’ But at the time I didn’t think so. I had a stable childhood and a good marriage, and that’s why I stay grounded.’

    Admission to tonight’s show is $25, with copies of Golden Touch, An Intimate Diary of Poems available at $20 each. For more information, phone 904-2787.
