    Besides Thunderball and Zardoz, my other favorite Connery picture is Outland, a really good sci-fi picture set in a mining community on one of Jupiter's moons.

    Lots of great movies. I have seen a number of them, but far less than half.

    Dang......Why is The Name Of The Rose so hard to find? And it's at stupidly high prices on the secondary market. Always enjoyed that movie.

    T\You know what i forgot? Time Bandits! He was King Agamemnon! And I remember seeing a program where I think Terry Gilliam it was, who said that in the script, where Agamemnon takes off his helmet, it actually says, "The warrior took off his helmet, revealing Sean Connery, or an actor of equal but cheaper stature". They wanted Connery for the role, but they didn't they'd ever be able to get him. But somehow, Sean got the script, took an interest, and boom, he was in the movie.

    It was essentially a remake of High Noon.

    A damn entertaining remake!

    When I was a youngster in the 60s, my parents forbid us from seeing those Bond movies. Apparently they thought his promiscuity was not the stuff role models were made of. My first taste of Bond was the campy Moore films. But I eventually caught up with Connery's Bond films. And yeah, he was the personification of cool and cold. I love Craig as Bond but his interpretation is more temperamental, runs a little hotter. But as noted in this thread, he did far more than just Bond. There were just so many iconic roles in a very long career that my favorite changes every day. But today, it's the Scottish captain of a Russian submarine. "Give me a ping, Vassily.
