Very sad. The best James Bond ever but I saw him in Derby O'Gill and the Little People well before he got his 00 status.

RIP Mr Connery

He sang in films a couple of times but it should have been dubbed (in my opinion).

We're gonna call this a non-music obituary, but I sure enjoyed his movies. I think I enjoyed him more after he graduated out of the James Bond role. He lived to the age of 90. Hope I can do so well.

The Hill & Name of the Ros were his best films.

What I found insufferable was that the tax-dodging bastard thought he could shove his nose into UK affairs i.e. gobbing off about Scottish independence. Either pay your taxes here or shut up. The Con thought he could have it both ways.

R.I.P. Sean.
To my mind the best James Bond.

Apart from Bond, my favourites for Connery would be:
"The man who would be king" (with Michael Caine) and
"Hell Drivers" (with Stanley Baker & Patrick McGoohan)

It's time to dig out a few DVDs.

Oh Raedwulf, the man has only just died - please feel free NOT to comment so nastily!
The Scottish Diaspora is worldwide, and the majority of them (and their descendants) will always feel Scottish, no matter where they live, work - and pay taxes.
- How many people do you know that pay tax in the country where they live, have become citizens, are registered to vote - and also in another country that they are non-resident, perhaps visit for a holiday or to see relatives, attend a funeral?
Sean never did as some, come back to Scotland to take advantage of the SNHS. He did however donate (I believe) his whole fee from one of his later Bond films to charity - I am sure you can check that for yourself.

Anyone can have an opinion on the future of their homeland whether they live there or not. Absurd to suggest otherwise. He didn't have a vote but he could say what he wanted.

and by the way, any Scot is perfectly entitled to have an opinion and make comments about SCOTTISH Independence - that is NOT shoving your nose in UK affairs!!! Scotland is a nation in her own right, has been for considerably longer than England!
The Scottish people had little choice when the two kingdoms were united under our James VI on the death of Elizabeth I - he was the heir, so became James VI (Scotland) and I (England. The countries remained separate, had their own laws, parliaments, education and religious systems. The cultures were radically different; in Scotland the Highlands and Islands - and Lowland rural areas - being under the Clan system. The relatively few towns were small, not the conurbations of today. Scots were well educated (some of our universities established in 1413, 1451, 1532) and well travelled -the Auld Alliance between Scotland and France the 30,000 Scottish community in Krakow the 1600s, the shepherds in Paraguy etc.
Around a hundred years after James Vi and Vi united the kingdoms (which remained separate!) came the massive con trick of the union of the parliaments -gggrrrr. The Treaty of Union of the Parliaments was conducted in an underhand way, had to be signed by those lords who were 'bought' in a cellar in Edinburgh. Scotland set aside her parliament - as England ought to have done also - but surprise surprise, Westminster carried on as before,, so the large number of English members would always be able to outvote the small number of Scots MPs. More galling is the fact that Magna Carta, Henry VIII laws and the farcical ' unwritten constitution' - all of which predate the Treaty of Union and so should not be legitimate from 1707
So - the UK has no right to comment of what a Scot has to say about their hopes for their homeland - none of the UK's business!

Mind what happened 300 years ago is by the by but I agree he was perfectly entitled to comment. Just as an aside James didn't really unite the kingdoms as such. It was a personal union in that we shared a monarch. Like we share a monarch with Canada etc now. He wanted to unite the kingdoms but neither kingdom would bite. So he styled himself of Great Britain but it was just a personal styling. Kingdoms were united under Queen Anne when the Scottish Parliament buckled under the pressure of possible economic sanctions which went in hand with bribery. Both the carrot and stick.

I did enjoy his films, but I can't forgive/forget that he advocated slapping a woman 'if she deserved it'.

I saw this today:

SEAN CONNERY died 31-10 - 20

3 + 1 + 1 + 0 +2 + 0 = 007

Uncanny!

Ps. I've never watched a James Bond film...

You are in for a treat.

NPR was doing a Sean Connery appreciation where they were also playing the music from his films. I was traveling and kinda came through and only heard part of it as I drifted into, then out of, some local station's zone...

I liked Zardoz, but the first time I saw it I didn't quite get it. I had to think about it, and then see it again.
