The best Bond of the lot. Old school suave, when actors were actors.

RIP Sean.
I spent most of my money on Women and grog.
The rest I just wasted.

That’s because every character he played was Sean Connery! He was a character on and off the screen.

One of the obits said one reason he got out of Bond films was because they were getting him to do more dangerous stunts, such as swimming with sharks. Apparently in 1 scene where he was strapped to a table with a laser beam slowly cutting through the table as it headed towards his family jewels, they didn’t have any suitable special effects. Instead, they had a guy with an acetylene torch under the table cutting through it, only stopping a few centimetres away from his most cherished possessions! I’d imagine no acting was required in that scene.

Probably, always will be, although Craig has won we over with a return to a more grittier Bond and less of the suave. I think of the alternatives it's likely Craig would be the only one that Connery would approve of!

In terms of suave classic Bond I agree Connery was the best, he created the aura of the character and set the standard for the others to follow.

Yep. I used to be an avid reader of the Bond books and I always had the mental picture of Connery.

A sad loss!

One of my favourite Sean Connery films was “The Hill” and I really liked his role in “The Longest Day”.  I think that he just played himself in that role.

I like a good WW11  film, the Longest day was a great movie, star studded cast including SC......

I was the same Cookie, I dont mind Daniel Craig once you give it a chance, Connery is numero uno though.
