Happy birthday, Sean Connery

On Wednesday, Sean Connery turned 80. 80! In tribute, here's the belly dance scene from "From Russia With Love", featuring Lisa (Leila) Guiraut. Leila, who now lives in Spain, was actually born in England as boring old Shirley Nelson, so there's hope for me yet!

Incidentally, the belly dancer in the opening credits to "From Russia With Love" isn't Leila but Julie Mendez (click the link and follow the thread until you get to the cringe-making clip of her 'On the Buses' performance). When last heard of, Julie was also still alive and living in Brighton:

Next week: the Bond Belly Dance Blow Up continues!
