007’s First Nude “Bond Girl!” Molly Peters Has My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” Notoriety!

“Who’s Up For A Workout?”

Molly Peters is, that’s for sure!

You might recognize her from her sexy outfit, which became iconic thanks to a very suave British Secret Agent in the 60’s who managed to take it off of her – the first nude scene ever in a 007 film!

Celebrating The Life Of “Bond Girl” Molly Peters!

My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” looks at the short but very sweet career of a classic Pin-Up Model who becomes legendary for a single role!

Molly Peters was born in 1939 in Walsham-le-Willows in Suffolk England.

A normal childhood led to the inevitable career choice for a beautiful young woman – pinup Model!

Peters started modeling in a variety of Men’s magazines of that time: the early 60’s were filled with titles like “Men”, “Beau,” “Ace,” “Parade,” “Best for Men,” “Dapper,” and “Escapade.”

By this time, magazines were willing to show more flesh, or in this case ALL of the flesh – just posed in a certain way to stay “just on this side” of decency and obscenity laws…

Molly appeared in dozens of men’s magazines, but after appearing in a few films either uncredited or in very small roles, fame came knocking – hard!

Her greatest screen role was in “Thunderball”:

First, stop for a moment to enjoy that classic 60’s Bond poster…great imagery, tagline and confidence, as this was a film that knew it was a smash hit and couldn’t wait to prove it!

Early in the film, 007 goes to a health spa for some undercover work…cue Molly:

As you can see, the camera loved her, and being a “Bond girl” gave her a whole new opportunity to pose for pictures likes these:

Molly achieved her greatest enduring cult cinema popularity with her memorably sensuous portrayal of Patricia Fearing, the fetching masseuse who gets seduced by James Bond at the Shrubland health club in “Thunderball.” She was discovered by director Terence Young and has the distinction of being the first Bond girl to be seen taking her clothes off on screen. 

She is best remembered as Bond girl Patricia Fearing, the nurse Sean Connery makes love to in a steam room and is later massaged by Connery while she’s wearing nothing but a towel in Thunderball (1965). She was 23 then.

In the wake of her 007 stint Peters acted in two more movies and popped up on episodes of the TV shows “Armchair Theatre” and “Baker’s Half-Dozen.”

A Career Ended Too Soon…

Just a few years after her appearance in “Thunderball”, online reports say that Peters had her acting career abruptly cut short after reportedly having a falling out with her agent!

Ultimately, the Actress only had ten screen credits…and little is known of her after leaving acting, except for getting married and having a son.

Sadly, this groundbreaking “Bond Girl” died in 2017…

Since we are discussing “Bond girls”, how about these two? One was a legend, and one a more contemporary version, but both were gorgeous to watch!
