Bikini Movies

Dr. No (1962)
The first James Bond movie starring Sean Connery contains one of the iconic moments in bikini history — Ursula Andress coming out of the sea in a bikini.

Thunderball (1965)
The James Bond movie that introduces the villain Blofeld also contains the most beautiful Bond girl to wear a bikini — French actress Claudine Auger as Domino.

One Million Years B.C. (1966)
Raquel Welch, 1960s sex symbol, spends the entire movie in a fur bikini. As if that isn't enough, she and her fellow cavemen engage in hand-to-hand combat with dinosaurs. Picture Jurassic Park combined with a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit video. Or maybe, given that this was the sixties, that should be Godzilla combined with How to Stuff a Wild Bikini. Purists insist that dinosaurs had died out long before the cavemen came along. But Ray Harryhausen, who animated the dinosaur attacks using stop motion technique, has stated that he didn't make One Million Years B.C. for "professors" who "probably don't go to see these kinds of movies anyway."

You Only Live Twice (1967)
Sean Connery as James Bond is hot on the trail of Blofeld, who's now doing evil in Japan. Bond disguises himself as a Japanese fisherman, living near Blofeld's lair in a fishing village, Naturally, he has a fake Japanese secret agent wife, played by Mie Hama. She wears a bikini for the entire thirty minute assault on Blofeld's evil lair.

Once You Kiss a Stranger (1969)
In the closing sequence, a bikini-clad lass carrying a speargun is arrested for murder. Earlier in the film, the girl seduces a professional golfer, and then offers to kill his opponent if the golfer kills her psychiatrist. If the plot sounds familiar, it's because this movie is a rip-off of Alfred Hitchcock's 1951 movie Strangers on a Train. But this movie does it better, mainly because it has Carol Lynley, a 1960s starlet who's best known for lip-synching the Oscar-winning song "There's Got to Be a Morning After" in The Poseidon Adventure (1972). But if you want to see Carol Lynley in a bikini, see her in Once You Kiss a Stranger. Good luck with finding it, though. The best we could do was the movie poster.

Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
Sean Connery's last appearance as James Bond unless you count the rip-off Never Say Never Again. The arch-villain Blofeld builds a satellite to take over the world. Bond infiltrates Blofeld's secret lair, an oil platform off Baja California, intending to replace the cassette tape that controls the satellite (the cassette tape was an archaic predecessor to a CD). Blofeld's girlfriend, played by Jill St. John, is secretly helping Bond by switching the cassette tapes. But Jill has trouble hiding the cassette tape in her teeny tiny bikini, which she wears for the last thirty minutes of the film.
