Hot in the heels (as it were), of Pussy Galore, we have Fiona Volpe as seductive henchwoman. Already in just three major films we had come a long way from Rosa Klebb.
Anyway, to the point – not long after seeing the Italian temptress roll over her bed, after a bout of nookie with the real Major Derval, the fake Derval walks in and shoots him. Volpe hands the imposter a bag containing a small breathing apparatus kit and a small canister of Gamma Gas.
The valve on the canister, when pressed, releases a pressurised dose of lethal nerve gas.
We would see this later in the movie.
We would next see the leather clad minx - firing rockets from a motor bike, but on with the gadgets...
