NEW YORK – Splash yourself with cold water: Blockbuster has named its best beach moments in movie history and two red-hot Bond girls lead the pack.
The No. 1 choice as selected by the video chain is the eye-popping scene in which Ursula Andress (search) emerges dripping wet from the sea wearing a revealing bikini in the first James Bond flick, "Dr. No" (1962).
"It is yet to be equaled and remains to this day one of the most memorable moments in cinema history," says the Web site hollywoodcultmovies.com.
In second place is Halle Berry (search), who sashays from the ocean dressed in a jaw-dropping orange bikini in the 2002 Bond movie, "Die Another Day." (search) Berry's stunning beach walk was intended by the film's producers as a tribute to the Andress scene 40 years earlier.
Few people can ever forget the pulse-pounding moment in which Dudley Moore first lays eyes on Bo Derek (search), as she sexily strolls out of the water in "10" (1979). Blockbuster awarded that one the No. 3 spot.
Despite that, Derek once told an interviewer: "I never watch [that scene]. I'm embarrassed by seeing so much of myself."
Next is the chilling scene in which a young skinny-dipper, playfully splashing around in the water, get eaten by a shark in "Jaws" (1975).
And coming in at No. 5 is an oldie but goodie — the steamy roll in the surf by Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr, in "From Here to Eternity," (search) which won eight Oscars, including Best Picture of 1953.
