Sean Connery, Honor Blackman, Shirley Eaton, Gert Frobe
in Ian Fleming's
Directed by Guy Hamilton

is an extremely rare "behind the scenes" wide angle candid image featuring the world famous scene w Sean Connery (James Bond) wakes up hours later... after receiving a powerful karate chop to the base of his skull from an unknown assailant. Right now, a woman from the wardrobe department is fixing Shirley Eaton's (Jill Masterson) robe. She is lying nude on the bed as Connery looks on. They are rehearsing the scene when Bond wakes up and enters Jill's bedroom in the Fontainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach. 007 finds her lying dead on the bed topless, wearing only panties, completely covered in gold paint. In reality, neither Connery or Shirley actually step foot in the USA!! This scene was shot in one of the sound stages in Pinewood Studios, UK. You can clearly make out the press photographers in the background. They have all shown up from around the world to document this very important scene! JUST in case you did not know... A- To remove the gold paint from all over her body, Shirley Eaton was scrubbed down by the wardrobe mistress and the make-up girl, and then had to sweat off the remaining gold in a number of Turkish baths.
B- Jill Masterson ( Shirley Eaton ) dies of "skin suffocation" by being coated in gold, a complication that, despite popular belief, has no basis in fact. The belief depends on the incorrect supposition that respiration occurs, at least in part, through the skin, a fallacy that has been discredited in scientific circles since the Renaissance. Despite periodic debunking in the popular media (especially noteworthy is a 1978 column of the syndicated newspaper feature, "The Straight Dope", and a 2003 episode of the Discovery Channel series, "MythBusters" (2003)), a widespread belief in the myth of "skin suffocation" still exists. The myth was further bolstered by rumors that Shirley Eaton had actually died on set from asphyxiation due to the gold paint.
