. . . already had messed up her head-to-toe make-up job running along the beach from Dr. No's approaching gunboat on "Crab Key" BEFORE emerging nearly as bare as Venus-from-the-sea. Honey actress Ursula Andress discloses here that the predominantly male crew filming her beach romp with Sean Connery (as James Bond) invaded her Pre-shoot, hour-long make-up session as every inch of her totally naked body was "painted" front and back with the skin tone demanded by her role (or at least ordered up on the behalf of all her kibitzing male superiors). Once she crammed into her infamously tight white bikini, this garment tripped her up, causing her to slice open a leg on the sharp coral (requiring another make-out . . . oops, make-up session). No one asks the more elderly Miss Andress here about another scene filmed a month later at a studio in England, in which she is nakedly paraded full-frontal off DR. NO's decontamination conveyor belt (unlike Sean Connery, who follows just behind her, shown from only his waist up). No doubt Sean was whispering in Ursula's ear, "Don't worry, Honey, it's not as if guys will be able to pause and zoom in on this movie scene 50 years from now!"
