2. URSULA ANDRESS IN DR. NO (1962)Arguably the granddaddy of all hot water-related movie scenes, Ursula Andress’ strut out of the ocean in the classic James Bond film Dr. No doesn’t necessarily strike a guy’s hormones with as much tenacity today as it did back the early ’60s. And it’s easy to explain why: These days, pretty women in bikinis are seen everywhere we look, which is, of course, a wonderful thing.
Memorable shots of beauties in swimwear weren’t as common back then, though. Not that Andress circa 1962 needed any contextual defense; what was sexy then is still sexy now, and seeing Andress, as Honey Ryder (have a euphemism field day with that name), cuff those seashells won’t ever lose its indirectly naughty appeal. Many actresses have tried to emulate this scene in the years since, but we all know who did it first, and best.
