The unpublished images from early 007 movie shoots were found during a search of the famed photographer's archive of pictures.

One shows Sean Connery in a dressing room with a troupe of showgirls during a break in filming Diamonds Are Forever in Las Vegas.

Another features Blackman - who played Pussy Galore in 1964's Goldfinger - standing on a beach wearing a skimpy bikini and with her character's first name etched in the sand.

O'Neill says, "The '60s were an incredible time. Young people took over, creating their own cultural landscape on stage, in music, fashion and on the film set. I was lucky - seriously lucky. I was in the right place at the right time. But I never realised then that we were remaking the world in our own image - or that mine would become such a testament to the time."

The photos are due to go on display in London next month (Mar11) as part of an exhibition entitled Terry O'Neill: 50 Years At The Top.
