Sean Connery

Sean Connery, best known and remembered as the "original" James Bond is shown in this early 60s photo resting on a couch wearing an impecable suit with a skinny tie. Connery helped set the standard for James Bond and what was to be expected from the actors that would portray him in the future. His portrayal and presence immediately helped make Bond a household name in cinema, fashion, literature, and even in the car industry.

Besides 7 Bond films (including the 1983 unofficial remake of "Thunderball": Never Say Never Again, which got it's name thanks to Connery's wife who said that after completing "Diamonds Are Forever", the actor said he'd never be Bond again) his filmography is worth watching too.

I'd like to thank the more than 10,000 readers that have visited this blog all of this time, it is you who make all this possible.

Totalmente de acuerdo, estilo y clase. El y Roger Moore son mis Bonds favoritos.
