He was the epitome of cool. Right in there with Steve McQueen.

He was the best Bond and made me wish I knew him.
R.I.P. Sir.

Always thought Roger Moore was good, but Sean Connery was James Bond.

He was a Anti Gun hypocrite like a lot of so-called entertainers.

A fine actor. A joy to watch in both 007 and later work. I cannot say whether he comported himself as a gentleman, but he sure gave that impression.

What was hypocritical about his anti-gun stance? I don’t share it, but I have no doubt about his sincerity. I am interested to hear your take.

What a sad day for the film industry. Sure, a bunch of those actors are liberal hippies...But they do keep me entertained. And he was one of the greats. RIP

Did he now?

"I don’t think there is anything particularly wrong about hitting a woman- although I don’t recommend doing it in the same way that you’d hit a man. An open-handed slap is justified if all other alternatives fail.” – Sean Connery, Playboy, 1965.

Followed up 22 years later by the following.

“If you have tried everything else – and women are pretty good at this – they can’t leave it alone. They want to have the last word and you give them the last word, but they’re not happy with the last word. They want to say it again, and get into a really provocative situation, then I think it’s absolutely right.”

You win this one. My mistake. Thanks for the enlightenment. I appreciate it. A lesson in everything not being exactly how we think it is.

Believing the fictional character on the screen is the same in real life is a common mistake.

Agreed, but that was not the source of my error.

I was 15 when Goldfinger first appeared on the silver screen. I had just obtained my youth drivers permit. I believe the year was 1964. My parents allowed me to take a family sedan and drive myself to downtown Cedar Rapids to see the picture. My Aunt had just purchased a black 1964 Lincoln Continental sedan, much like the one that was crushed in the movie. I was absolutely spellbound with the ultra cool Sean Connery,the cars, the sexy women, the Walther PPK, everything! I would guess that over the years, I’ve seen the movie 50 times, and I don’t tire of it. And, by the way about 15 years ago I purchased an original low mileage 1964 Lincoln Continental black sedan. I fully restored the car and when I drive it, I think about those James Bond days of my youth.
