Don’t mess with Bond

What are the survival prospects for female characters in the James Bond movies? A new research project from Cleveland State University and Kent State University performed a quantitative content analysis for 195 female characters in 20 out of the 22 Bond films – uncovering in the process some clearcut predictors of their survivability.

“End-of-film mortality is predicted by sexual activity, ethical status (good vs. bad), and attempting to kill Bond.“

The research is slated for publication in the journal Sex Roles
