James Bond, Beaches, Mangos, and Conch Shells

Sharing a YouTube video clip which is the famous scene from the very first James Bond movie, “Dr. No”. James Bond (played by Sean Connery) sings a few words from “Under The Mango Tree” (or “Underneath the Mango Tree”); and HoneyRider (played by Ursula Andress; first #Bondgirl) was also singing that song while she was collecting conch shells on a beach in The Bahamas. The video doesn’t include the complete dialogue, but Honey said that she could get $50 for one shell in Florida!  “Dr. No” was released on October 5, 1962.  I wonder what the market price is for a conch shell these days.  Did you know that October 5th is James Bond Day?
