Happy 80th Birthday Connery...Sean Connery

Sean Connery, one of cinema's icons, celebrates today his 80th birthday. This Scottish actor is famous for playing the role of James Bond from 1962 to 1967, and later once again in 1971 & 1983; as well as appearing in films such as Alfred Hitchcock's "Marnie", "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade", "Murder on the Orient Express", "The Rock", and "The Untouchables" (for which he won an Oscar in 1988 as Best Supporting Actor).

Connery's style while portraying James Bond during the saga's first films has allowed him to be frequently featured in this blog. For some he is the original James Bond, and it can't be denied that films like "Dr. No", "Goldfinger", and "Thunderball" are amongst the best from the saga.

Posing in 1964 for one a publicity photo on the set of "Goldfinger", Sean Connery leaned on an Aston Martin with the Alps on the background. He proved that a gentlemen not only needs a good sense of style, but also attitude to create a long lasting and elegant impression.

Happy Birthday Sir Sean Connery!
