Irma Bunt is Piz Gloria's stern matron. She is also Blofeld's
aide in bringing about his plan to release walking time bombs
into society in the form of beautiful young women. Bunt soon puts
an end to Bond's amorous antics with Blofeld's bevy of beauties,
and finally ends 007's hopes and dreams when she callously guns
down his wife just minutes after their wedding.
"Come on, girls. Time for our massage."
Strongly resembling Rosa Klebb, Bundt was cold hearted, authoritative
and humourless, with the instinct of a killer. Bundt was at ease
whether she was acting as the tyrannous caretaker of the women
used for tests at Piz Gloria, or as the loyal henchwoman and assassin
Irma Bundt was Blofeld's personal secretary, who would carry
out Blofeld's every order, this included wathing his many women
at Piz Gloria to ensure they were safe and that they were not
interferring with Blofeld's secret operations. Bundt also served
as a henchwoman and protecter of Blofeld; she was responsible
for the drive-by shooting of Tracy Di Vicenzo only moments after
her marrying James Bond.
