Line(s) of the Day #SeanConnery

“The name’s Bond… James Bond.”

Farewell to Sir Sean Connery (1930 – 2020), who has passed at the age of 90. Knighted in 2000 and an Oscar winner in 1988 for his role as Jimmy Malone in The Untouchables, Connery had a long and successful career which included leading roles in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Highlander, The Hunt for Red October and The Rock. But it’s as 007 as the proud Scot will always be best remembered, being the first, and to many the definitive, James Bond.
