Martine Beswick is the rare Bond girl who appeared in two 007 movies: From Russia With Love and Thunderball. Add in her performances in the Hammer features One Million Years BC and Dr. Jekyll And Sister Hyde, and Beswick stakes out a place among the elite '60s screen sirens. Yet in those four movies, she only played the female lead once, in Dr. Jekyll And Sister Hyde, taking a backseat to lead Bond girls Daniela Bianchi (From Russia With Love) and Claudine Auger (Thunderball), and fur-bikini icon Raquel Welch (One Million Years BC).
