Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I’ve featured Dr. No here before… with someone as hot as Ursula Andress in that iconic bikini it’s a wonder I haven’t featured it more.
Not only is she iconic, but so is Sean Connery and the movie itself, which kicked off one of the strongest franchises in all of cinema history. Unlike any other franchise, Bond has reinvented itself for each generation in an admirable way. As shitty as the majority of the Pierce Brosnan Bonds turned out to be, they still featured some of the best shot action sequences of all time.
But it all started with Dr. No, which created an endearing screen icon not just in James Bond as a character, but in Sean Connery at his swaggering best. A lot of credit has to go to director Terence Young, who directed, arguably, the three best Bonds: Dr. No, From Russia With Love (my favorite) and Thunderball.
Mr. Young appears in today’s photo with Ms. Andress’ bikini and Mr. Connery!
