Sean Connery doing a handstand for Ursula Andress on the set of "Dr No."
Suck it, Trebek! Sean Connery, the manliest Scotsman of '60s cinema, just had to show off for piping-hot Swiss miss Ursula Andress on set, didn't he? Dr. No (1962) was the first James Bond movie, and Honey Ryder (Andress), who unforgettably emerged from the ocean in the white bikini pictured here, is considered the first cinematic Bond Girl. Andress' character as written by Ian Fleming in the novel was slightly different -- in the book, her name is Honeychile Rider, and she wasn't wearing a bikini (or even a one-piece) when she met agent 007. In another tweak to make the movie watchable, all of Andress' dialogue was dubbed by voiceover specialist Nikki van der Zyl. Ursula may have been easy on the eyes, but her harsh Swiss accent was murder on the ears.
