A-Z Challenge 2012: U is for Ursula Andress!

It is the 21st post in the April 2012 A-Z Blogging Challenge - and I think the time has come to bring out a little of the Eye Candy we like to spotlight around here. And, why not make it a Bond Girl. In fact, let's make it the First Bond Girl as...

And here's the famous scene now - Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder - emerging from sea in Dr. No.





That is not Ursula Andress's voice - talking or singing. She was dubbed for the whole movie, as Cubby Broccoli thought she sounded like "a Dutch comic."

She looked good in other movies too:




V only have a few more posts to go in this challenge - please come back for the next one and until that post you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!

  6. Fuck all the other Bond girls (pun intended), Ursula Andress is a goddess and definitely the hottest woman in Bond history.

    1. There you go! I have to agree - she's pretty much flawless. I have a real soft spot for Sophie Marceau too.
