The Sensuous Nurse -- Ursula Andress (Dr No; Mountain Of The Cannibal God; She) has been voted the top Bond girl of all time, making her mark on cinema in the famous Dr No scene with that bikini. Well, if you’ve ever wondered what she’d look like without the bikini, then reach for Shameless Screen Entertainment’s release of The Nurse (L’infermiera! Literally: Andress is undressed for most part of this pun-filled romp-com.
Jack Palance (Batman; Tango And Cash) plays a mean offbeat American tycoon looking to buy a vineyard in the beautiful Tuscan hills. The old Italian owner, a randy lecher who is convalescing from his last bonk-induced heart-attack, doesn’t want to sell, even if his madcap family does. The family hires the gorgeous Nurse, Ursula Andress to … ahem… undress and give the old man another – and they hope fatal – cardiac arrest! All barmy, fizzy fun and the clincher – this is the only non-Bond franchise with a second Bond girl! Thunderball’s stunning leather-clad biker, Luciana Paluzzi (The Green Slime) stars here without leathers… or anything!
This release will mark the first DVD release of The Nurse in the UK!

Nude goddess Ursula in a very disappointing sex comedy, 6 March 2006
Author: gridoon

Ursula Andress' naked body is one of those things that make you believe in God. The other two women (especially the one who plays the maid) have great bodies as well. Then why is the higher grade that I can give to a film with such quality and quantity of nudity only 3 out of 10? Because, to get to Ursula's unbelievable body, we have to sit through a movie that is otherwise unfunny and boring (keep in mind that I watched the full 101-minute version, not the 78-minute American one which probably cuts out a lot of the extraneous material). In typical Italian-comedy tradition, most of the characters are exaggerated caricatures (the army freak, the "latin lover", the constant drunk, the naive maid) that are not funny, simply overacted. Final word: watch this, but keep your finger on the fast-forward button, you're gonna need it. (*)
