>CAREY LOWELL While James Bond's recent film running mates have shown moxie as well as skin, Lowell is gutsier than most and even holds her own in a barroom fight in Licence to Kill.
ALISON DOODY Karen Allen was the model for the modern heroine in Raiders of the Lost Ark. The formidable Doody's heart may be in the wrong place in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, but she sure doesn't need Harrison Ford to lay his coat across any canals for her.
KIM BASINGER Okay, so she doesn't kick Jack Nicholson's shins in Batman and she is a bit passive and she doesn't get to fly the Bat-plane, but Basinger is very, well, inspirational and very blond.
