JANE BOND RECORDS

I had a minor fling this summer with Jane Bond. Before you get your hopes up for a tell-all post, "Jane Bond" is the codename for movies about female secret agents made in Hong Kong during the 1960s. The genre was led by actresses Connie Chan Po-Chu and Josephine Siao Fong-Fong in titles like Black Rose, Spy With My Face, Girl in Red, and Lady Black Cat. The films can be hard to track down, but you can find some of them on Youtube. I have not studied this genre in great detail yet, but the record graphics by Pathé Hong Kong/EMI are worth sharing- especially those that featured mystery and spy motifs! I've spotted a few of these rare releases on eBay, so collectors should keep their eyes peeled. If your vibe is cool Asian design and ladies sneaking around in catsuits, you have simply got to meet "Jane". Enjoy! Stay tuned for movie clips in the future. More info at Soft Film, Jane Bond Podcast, Lucha Diaries, Movie Fan Princess
