If you have not seen it yet...one of his earliest movies was "The Hill." It is about a prison camp for British soldiers in North Africa in WWII. I just watched him in "Rising Sun" yesterday...also an interesting character portrayal. May his soul rest in peace.
Most definitely. I recall the an ad for some Bond film, which said: "Sean Connery is James Bond." My favorite Connery Bond film was Goldfinger, which I saw on a Friday night in the Kimball auditorium. I recall that when Honor Blackman said; "My name is Galore, Pussy Galore," the audience cheered and applauded. Another good line came after Bond asked Goldfinger is he expected him to talk, only to be told "No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die."
