Topic: When did Bond first bleed?

Last night I re-watched the magnificent OHMSS like I do every Christmas. I notice new details every time. This time I discovered Bond has a small cut on his eyebrow after the fight in Tracy's hotel room. It's hardly a bloodbath, but we do see red. I started thinking: Is this the first time we see Bond's blood in the cinema or did Connery bleed in his Bond films?

That early? What scene?

Earliest I can recall is blood on his cheek when strapped onto Goldfinger’s laser table.

I believe his white t-shirt had bloodstains on it once he escapes through the ventilation system on Dr.No‘s island.

The name is Walker by the way.

His knuckles are bloody after his early fight with the chauffeur in DN.

In fact his knuckles get bloody quite a bit more than you think.  Check them out after his fight with Grant too.

Did Moore's Bond ever bleed? My impression is that Dalton in LTK was the bloodiest (is that a pun?) Bond before Craig.

Yes, and in his first one too.

Bond left a blood trail in TB

Also a memorable scene in TSWLM involving a cut after his fight with Jaws on the train.

My current 10 favorite:

Moore's Bond also got pretty cut up when he was keel hauled in For Your Eyes Only.  Connery was also seen with a split lip in Thunderball when Largo held him at gunpoint during the climax. Also as ASP 9mm, mentioned he cut his hand on the window glass during the train fight in From Russia With Love(although due to a continuity mistake the blood occasionally disappears).

The man with the golden gun when Bond is in Beirut when he has a fight with the 3 men and when he runs to his taxi he has blood running down his mouth
