Ursula Andress

Birth Date: March 19 1936
Birth Place: N/A

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 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 Andress 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. For instance, she ran away with an Italian actor at the tender age of 17, then returned home after her parents intervened. The stunning young woman started her movie career with small roles in Italian farces which invariably focused on her impressive physical attributes. Eventually, due in part to the patronage of her paramour Marlon Brando, she signed a contract to make movies for Columbia Studios and came to the USA, but met the rising star John Derek and married him in 1957, dropping out of movie-making 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' (qv0's fanciful James Bond espionage novels - in Dr. No, Andress's smoldering-yet-aloof screen presence immediately established her as one of the most desired women in the world, helped to make the James Bond franchise which continues to this day, and set the "Bond Girl" standard beside which all future Bond actresses would be judged (notwithstanding the fact that her German accent was so strong that her voice was dubbed in the movie). The success of Doctor No established Andress as a spectacular ornament to put on-screen alongside the most bankable talent of the sixties, 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, a movie which perhaps sums up mid-60s pop culture better than any other - written by Woody Allen, starring Allen, Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole (I), with music by Burt Bacharach and a title song performed by Tom Jones, and much on-screen sexual romping. Andress made many more movies in the US and Europe in the mid-60s to mid-70s, including Decima vittima, La, in which she wears a famously-ballistic bra, The Blue Max, in which she is aptly cast as the sultry, sexually-insatiable wife of an aristocratic German general in World War I, and Casino Royale, another foray into the world of James Bond. Her charms seemingly undiminished by age, at 40 she could still easily play a bombshell nurse hired to titillate a doddering millionaire to death in the slight Italian sex comedy The Secrets of a Sensuous Nurse.
