BIOGRAPHY
Born in Switzerland to German parents, Ursula Andress first sought out film work while on a holiday to Rome (she later insisted that the producers came to her first). After a string of cheapo films, Ursula was brought to the U.S. as the "New Dietrich," though the only things she truly had in common with Marlene was her German heritage and a magnificent pair of legs. In 1957, Ursula married American actor John Derek, who supervised every aspect of her career in much the same way that he'd later "mold" Bo Derek. The marriage ended unhappily, though Derek and Ursula have remained friends. She became an international sensation through her bikini-clad appearance as Honey Rider in the first James Bond picture Dr. No (1962), a role for which she was paid $10,000. Within a year, Ursula was sharing billing with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in Four for Texas (1963) and with Elvis Presley in Fun in Acapulco (1963); she also posed for a now much-sought-after nude layout in Playboy magazine. After this early burst of supercelebrity, Ursula settled into a series of increasingly humdrum films. During the making of 1981's Clash of the Titans, she linked up with the film's much-younger leading man Harry Hamlin, who became the father of her child. Ursula Andress remains today what she was in 1962: a stunning beauty of modest talents.
