Dr. No, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary next year, has topped the ‘best swimwear scene’ in a film poll conducted by beachwear specialists Trixan Body.
Ursula Andress emerging from the water in her white bikini with seawater pouring from her body stands out for nearly a quarter of those polled while a further 10 per cent of respondents think Halle Berry’s homage to the Dr. No scene in Die Another Day is their favourite.
Top 10 bikini scenes:
Dr. No: Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) stepping out of the sea in her white bikini
Die Another Day: Jinx (Halle Berry) is noticed by Bond through some binoculars as she comes out of the sea.
Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life: Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) rising out of the sea on a jet ski tooting an uzi.
Dukes of Hazard: Daisy Duke (Jessica Simpson) obtaining information from a policeman in her pink bikini.
Bridget Jones, The Edge of Reason: Bridget (Renee Zellweger) in Thailand after taking magic mushrooms.
10: Jenny Hanley (Bo Derek) running on the beach in slow motion
From Here to Eternity: Karen Holmes (Deborah Kerr) and Milton Warden (Burt Lancaster) on the beach
Return of the Jedi: Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) wearing a metallic bikini
Point Break: Bodhi (Patrick Swayze) in many surfing scenes
Austin Powers, The Spy Who Shagged Me: Felicity Shagwell (Heather Graham) taking off her wetsuit
On opposite ends of the spectrum are the 18-24 year olds and the 65 and above. Not surprisingly, 20 per cent of 18-24 year olds picked action movie Tomb Raider as the film with the most iconic swimwear scene. Whereas the over 65’s opted for the more traditional swimwear scene picking Ursula Andress seductively stepping out the sea.
