59 Photos Capture The Art Of Cool – Ursula Andress and Sean Connery sunbathing in the Bahamas while filming Dr. No (1961)

According to many die-hard James Bond aficionados, Honey Ryder, played by Swiss actress Ursula Andress is and always will be the ultimate Bond girl. Here she is cuddling up with James Bond himself, Sir Sean Connery while filming Dr, No back in 1961.

It was Connery’s performance in this film that fully won over Bond author Ian Fleming who wanted Cary Grant cast as 007. But after seeing how well Dr. No turned out, Fleming admitted that Connery was ‘ideal’ for the role. He then went on to adapt all his future novels to give Bond a Scots background like Connery.
