ITEM: A vintage and original 1965 silver gelatin candid photograph of supremely sexy actress Ursula Andress. The statuesque Swiss bombshell rocketed to stardom as Bond girl Honey Ryder in Dr. Again, Andress shows off her enviable bikini body on the beach during the filming of the French movie Les tribulations d’un Chinois en Chine which was released in the U. As Up to His Ears. Measures 5″ x 7″ without margins on a glossy, single weight paper stock. Film’s French title ink stamp; Culver Pictures ink stamp; and handwritten notations to verso. Please use the included images as a conditional guide. It’s probably unsurprising that one of the most famous sequences in movie history features a woman who spent most of her time faking being an actress. When Swiss bombshell Ursula Andress emerges from the sea in Dr. No (1962) in the famed white bikini, she’s living proof that what’s truly unique about the movies is their unsurpassed visual power. The quintessential jet-set Euro starlet, Ursula was born in the Swiss canton of Berne on March 19, 1936, one of seven children in a German Protestant family. Although often seeming icily aloof, a restless streak early demonstrated itself in her personality, and she had a desire from an early age to explore the world outside Switzerland. The stunning young woman started her movie career with small roles in three quickie Italian films, which led to a contract with Paramount Pictures and came to the United States. At 19, she met matinée idol John Derek, who left his first wife and two children to marry her in 1957, dropping out of moviemaking for several years thereafter. The year 1962 saw the relatively unknown Swiss beauty back on the set, co-starring with Sean Connery in the first movie version of Ian Fleming’s fanciful “James Bond” espionage novels, Dr. Andress’ smoldering-yet-aloof screen presence immediately established her as one of the most desired women in the world, helped to start the James Bond franchise that continues to this day and set the “Bond Girl” standard beside which all future Bond actresses would be judged (notwithstanding the fact that her Swiss/German accent was so strong that her voice had to dubbed in the movie). The success of Dr. No established her as a spectacular ornament to put on-screen alongside the most bankable talent of the 1960s, and she was cast in vehicles for such icons as Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.. In 1965, she was one of several European starlets to co-star in What’s New Pussycat (1965) — a film that perhaps sums up mid-’60s pop culture better than any other — written by Woody Allen, starring Allen and Peter Sellers, with music by Burt Bacharach, a title song performed by Tom Jones and much on-screen sexual romping. Andress made many more movies in the United States and Europe from the mid-’60s to the late’70s, including The 10th Victim (1965), in which she wears a famously ballistic bra; The Blue Max (1966), in which she is aptly cast as the sultry, sexually insatiable wife of an aristocratic World War I German general; and Casino Royale (1967), another foray into the world of James Bond. Her charms seemingly undiminished by age, at 39 she could still easily play a bombshell nurse hired to titillate a doddering millionaire to death in the slight Italian sex comedy The Sensuous Nurse (1975). Having divorced Derek in 1966 and split from longtime paramour Jean-Paul Belmondo in 1972, Andress played the field for years, reportedly involved at various times with Ryan O’Neal, Dennis Hopper, Fabio Testi, John DeLorean and Marcello Mastroianni. In 1979, she began what would be a long-term romance with Harry Hamlin, her handsome young co-star from Clash of the Titans (1981) (in which she was cast, predictably, as “Aphrodite”). While subsequently traveling in India, Andress’ belly began to swell out of her clothing, and she felt very nauseous. What at first seemed a severe case of “Delhi Belly” turned out to be pregnancy, her first and only, at age 43. She and Hamlin named the child, who was born in 1980, Dimitri Hamlin. After the birth of her son, Andress scaled back her career, which now focused mostly on European television and films, as she was raising Dimitri in Rome. Her relationship with Hamlin ended in 1983, and she last worked on a film in 2005. IMDb Mini Biography By: Larry-115.
