Help! (1965)

Thunderball (1965)

The Day of the Dolphin (1973)

The Story of Adele H. (1975)

Jaws: The Revenge (1987)

Casino Royale (2006)

Fool's Gold (2008)

Note: at least seven James Bond movies filmed their underwater scenes in the Bahamas (presumably to take advantage of the crystal-clear water). But I believe Thunderball and Casino Royale are the only two where the action within the film is supposed to be taking place there.

Which titles exactly? Have all the actors who played Bond filmed in the Bahamas?

Also NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN (1983) was made by another production company but it's essentially a remake of THUNDERBALL. So I am guessing it also filmed in the Bahamas. Yes?

The other five titles I know of are You Only Live Twice, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, and Never Say Never Again. I deduced this by cross-referencing a Wikipedia "List of films shot in the Bahamas" with that site's plot synopsis for each film.

So it looks like only Connery, Moore, and Craig have appeared in films that were (partly) shot in the Bahamas.  Not sure whether Bond himself always appeared in these underwater scenes, however (or whether if so, it might have involved stunt doubles).

All the films listed in my original post include scenes that are supposed to actually take place in the Bahamas (except The Story of Adele H.: Barbados).  Based on the Wiki list, there are apparently many other films that were at least partly shot there, even when the action isn't necessarily set there.
