Ursula Andress turns 75 today!
She was the first “Bond Girl”.
Her entrance in the movie “Dr. No” is considered #1 on the list of “100 Greatest Sexy Movie Moments”. As the shell diver and love interest of James Bond…the real James Bond, and my twin, Sean Connery, Honey Ryder, she rises out of the Caribbean in a white bikini.
Her heavy Swiss accent was dubbed over in “Dr. No”, no one really cared what she sounded like!
There have been many Bond Girls since, and I’ve seen them all. I have every Bond movie ever made on DVD.
But, none of them compare to Ursula, she set the standard. The white bikini, well it sold for sold for £35,000 at auction in 2001…I guess she really did set the standard!
So, Happy Birthday Ursula a.k.a. Honey Ryder, I hope it’s a good one!
