Long before Halle literally made a splash as Jinx in Die Another Day, there was Gloria Hendry who I'm sure made a few splashes of her own in Roger Moore's pants, when she assumed Bond girl duties, as Rosie Carver, in 1973's Live and Let Die.
In that film, she became the first African American woman to be romantically involved with 007. She is NOT, however, the first African American woman to have a role in a Bond film; that honor goes to Trina Parks who had an uncredited role as a bodyguard in Diamonds Are Forever.
When Live And Let Die was first released in South Africa, Gloria Hendry's love scenes with Roger Moore were cut out because it was prohibited by the Apartheid government.
Right before shacking up with Moore, Gloria was a Playboy Bunny.
She later starred in several 1970's Blaxploitation films.
She lives in Los Angeles today.
