Modesty Blasie, a female James Bond, so she perhaps began. But, in comic strip and in book and, straying rather under the hands of Joseph Losey, on film, she has developed into a lady with her own views of the world and how to get through it. She started on the wrong side of the law - as a refugee from some Levant back-alley, given that forename because she had none of it, at least in her hunger for knowledge - and she has ended, aided and abetted but never bedded by the Cockney tearaway Willie Garvin, as a goodie. But still a toughie.
