The Hill is perhaps his best performance.
He's also great in Highlander considering he's only on-screen for about twenty minutes.
The gun is good. Sir Billi is evil.
Look, I know it's Halloween and it's surely a fitting image for said occasion, but a beloved legend has died.
also The Man Who Would be King and The Offence. And I don't care what anyone says Zardoz is a fantastic trip.
I'd trade Zardoz in for him taking on the role of Morpheus in The Matrix.
He probably had the best post-Bond career out of any of the other Bonds, although Pierce Brosnan comes pretty close.
YTMFD (You're the Man Forever Dawg)
He managed to distance himself from Bond, once his hair grayed a bit and he stopped shaving. For me Bond Connery and older Connery are two totally different actors.
I do think he became a much warmer actor as he got older.
Welp more crappy news. He'll always be my favorite Bond.
One of his earlier roles was in the great WWII classic, The Longest Day. Man had a lot of charisma, even back then.
Don't forget Robin and Marian, an overlooked masterpiece. (Plus it reunites him with Robert Shaw, aka "Red Grant" of From Russia With Love.
Two Bonds gone, but only one image required:
Devastated to hear about Sir Sean Connery He was my first exposure to James Bond, still my favourite and he was terrific as Henry Jones. I also liked him in Hunt for Red October and The Rock. 90 is a good innings though. RIP
Know one mentioned medicine man yet I believe or rising sun but I rather enjoyed those as well as the rock and entrapment
Rip sir sean connery
May the force be with you
The Rock. Super fun movie and I loved the fan theory that formed where Bond was an identity and this version wound up in prison.
Why No love for the Name of the Rose?
Also I will always have a soft spot for the Original Highlander. Where they hired the Scotsman to play an ancient Egyptian pretending to be a Spaniard and A French/Swiss actor to play a Scotsman.
RIP Sean Connery
I grew up in the 80s with the Roger Moore years by the way. The Daniel Craig years have turned out to be decently good.
Rising Sun is a good one based on the Michael Crighton novel.
Rest In Peace, Sean Connery. A legend in cinema. That was devastating news, but he lived a long and great life.
his wife revealed he was apparently suffering from dementia.
he outlived Roger by just a few months.
he wasn't the first Bond that i saw but i immediately liked his the most. well, some of them. Of course all that went into them wasn't just the actor
He was just one of an all-star cast in A Bridge Too Far, but he still managed to stand out.
one of the best damn Bond line deliveries ever, "positively shocking" walkout is so gold
