Playboy takes "A Loving Look at 007's sultriest Co-Stars", (which seems to involve little more than taking out all the same photos they showed us in July 1979, and then tacking some new ones on the end to include the Bond girls from For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy and Never Say Never Again); then challenges you to take the 007 sex quiz.
THE SPY THEY LOVE TO LOVE
A tribute to 007’s beauties of the past-and a look at those you will be seeing this year.
Unless, like Rip van Winkle, you’re just coming up for air after an extremely long nap, you’re already aware that there’ll be two James Bond movies vying for screen space in 1983. It’s been 20 years since Sean Connery quaffed his first vodka martini (“Shaken, not stirred”) in Dr. No, ten since Roger Moore took over with Live And Let Die. Rumor has it that Moore’s kid thinks Connery is the real Bond. You can cast your own vote at the box office: Will it be Moore and Maud Adams in Octopussy or Connery, Barbara Carrera and Kim Basinger in Never Say Never Again?
At playboy, we’ve always felt a special affinity with Bond; you originally read several of Ian Fleming’s thrillers in our pages. In this pictorial celebration, we recall the beauties of Bond’s past, salute the newly arrived—and test your B.Q. (Bond quotient) with a quiz.
If you think you've seen some of these ladies on playboy's pages before, you're right. Among our earlier belles-of-Bond tributes (below); cover stories in November 1965 (left), July 1979 (right).
First of the spectacularly successful James Bond movies was Dr. No (left), a 1963 release starring Sean Connery as Agent 007, the spy with a Licence To Kill, and the in-comparable Ursula Andress (reprised above), as a sweet young Jamaican girl by the name of Honeychile Rider. She reminded Bond of Botticellis famed Venus.
From Russia With Love, which came out in 1963, brought us Danieia Bianchi (below), as Corporal of State Security Tatiana Romanova, the girl on a mission from Moscow who fell for Bond. At right, the lady who has always been in Bond's corner: M's assistant. Miss Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell).
Shirley Eaton was the unfortunate whose gilt trip was her undoing in Goldfinger (1964). Connery, again as Bond, got there too late to rescue those golden globes. Fresh from a roll in the hay, at right, is Honor Blackman, as the naughty lady who bore Fleming's most inspired moniker: Pussy Galore. At bottom right: Margaret Nolan, who gave Connery a poolside rubdown in Goldfinger.
One thing that struck us while taking this trip down the memory lane of our Bond files was how much time 007 spent having his back rubbed. There's one such scene in nearly every flick. Below, Connery and Claudine Auger in a poster for 1965's Thunderball that showed more Sean than usual.
Fleming's novel You Only Live Twice was first published in Playboy in 1964 (above); 1967's film featured Mie Hama (left), as Kissy Suzuki, Bond's diving-girl bride; Akiko Wakabayashi (below, with Connery), as Aki, secretary to top spy Tiger Tanaka (later done in by a poisoned thread), and Hisako Katakura (right), merely a passing fancy.
Diamonds Are Forever, in 1971, was Connery's first return to Bondage. He swore he'd chucked the role after making You Only Live Twice, and the 007 film for 1969, On Her Majesty's Secret Service (also based an a thriller that premiered in playboy, back in 1963), starred George Lazenby. Lazenby actually looked more like the Bond described by Fleming, but audiences couldn't accept him and Cannery was rehired. Below and bottom left, he gambols in Vegas with Jill St. John, as Tiffany Case, and catches up an his reading in the tub. Hard to believe he was once a chorus boy in South Pacific. Below center and right, we bring you better looks at St. John and at Lana Wood, who played a brief Bond interest, Plenty O'Toole.
Roger Moore made his bow as Bond in 1973's Live And Let Die, in which Jane Seymour, as Solitaire (above), refused to let her spirits be dampened by the machinations of the villainous Mr. Big (Yaphet Kotto). Also in Bond's bed, albeit not for long (left), was former New York City Playboy Club Bunny Gloria Hendry. There's a more glorious view of Gloria below.
The Man With The Golden Gun appeared in playboy's pages in 1965 (above) and reached the screen, again with Moore, in 1974. Bond was fetchingly flanked (below) by Maud Adams (left), as Andrea, mistress of Scaramanga— the titular guy with the gat, played by Christopher Lee—and by Britt Ekland, as secretary Mary Goodnight (right). Far ten points, name another Golden Gun villain. (Answer: Herve "Tattoo" Villechaize.)
The Spy Who Loved Me, released in 1977, introduced Bond (Moore again) to Major Anya Amasova, played by the beauteous Barbara Bach (left). There was a Fleming book titled The Spy Who Loved Me, but it had jolly little to do with the film. Neither did the picture below of Miss Bach, except that it does depict Bondage. The film makers used their imagination, and so did famed photographer David Bailey, who shot Bach for a playboy layout.
Moonraker, which was launched onto the world's screens in 1979, teamed Moore with Lois Chiles (left), as Holly Goodhead. Hers, as for as we can tell, is not a name that sprung from Fleming's pen. Although he was surrounded by a batch of Bond beauties (right), Moore ended up making it in weightlessness with the chilly Chiles. Unfortunately for Bond fans, Corinne Clery (far right), a for more simpatico performer in the role of a helicopter pilot for bad guy Hugo Drax, got bumped off early in the flick. The movie Drax, played by Michael Lonsdale, wanted to breed a master race in space,- in the book, he was a rocketeer who cheated at cards at a private London club.
For Your Eyes Only, which came our way in 1981, showcased (from left) Max Vesterholt, Kim Mills and playboy's Be a James Bond Girl contest winner Robbin Young in minor roles and, as an ersatz countess, Cassandra Harris (with Moore below). Carole Bouquet was the leading Bondswoman in the movie, in case you'd forgotten. (Among the five short stories constituting the book For Your Eyes Only—no relation to the movie—was one. The Hildebrand Rarity, from playboy, March 1960. It was, in fact. Bond's debut in our pages.)
Octopussy came out as a two-part novelette in playboy (right) in March and April 1966, two years after the authors death. The movie Octopussy also draws from another Fleming story. The Property of a Lady, which ran in playboy's January 1964 issue. Roger Moore returns as Bond; his principal adversary, Octopussy, is played by Maud Adams (below). She heads an all-girl army, which sounds promising. Also involved: a traveling circus, Faberge eggs and nuclear terrorism.
The title Never Say Never Again is an obvious play an the repeated retirements of this film's star, Sean Cannery, from the cinematic Secret Service. Nonetheless, here he is again, back in the saddle with newcomer Kim Basinger (below and bottom) and the exotically lovely Barbara Carrera (right). This picture is loosely based on Thunderball and has Connery playing Band at his own age (52), Basinger reprising the Domino role and Carrera as 007 s sultry archnemesis, Fatima.
The 007 Sex Quiz
By DANNY BIEDERMAN
He was the spy who loved them let's see if you can remember how and why.
You can call it supply-side entertainment. A direct free-market competition between two classic James Bonds—-Sean Connery in Never Say Never Again and Roger Moore in Octopussy— to see once and for all who’s the biggest box-office draw. It's a challenge Agent 007 himself would love. Of course, there is something Bond loves as much as, if not more than, a challenge. Over the past 20 years, in 13 previous films, 007 has encountered some of the world's most beautiful women, and despite stiff competition from special effects and spectacular stunts, the resulting scenes have been among the most memorable in movies. We’ve designed a quiz to see just how much attention you were paying to those amorous adventures. The following multiple-choice questions cover some of Bond’s sexiest escapades, so grab a pencil and pour yourself a vodka martini (shaken, not stirred, of course).
