Yes he was easily the best Bond. The very first film set the tone and class that is 007. So many great films over the years. He will be missed.

As the PR at the time said, Sean Connery is James Bond. He will be missed.

The first of the series that I saw in a theater was "Goldfinger" in 1964 when I was twelve. Took a lot of work on mom and dad to get permission to go. As I remember, I had already read half a dozen of Ian Fleming's novels.

Sean Connery was the antithesis of the woke, pampered, gender confused "star" of today's Hollywood.

No one could ever say "Bond. James Bond ...." quite like him.

I vividly remember going to see Goldfinger. Went with older sister and her girlfriend to see it at Reese AFB. Tickets cost one dollar. I was 15 and soon had my nose in every Bond book available.

Hunt for Red October is still my favorite movie (and book) of all time. Connery was one of a kind.

Great actor. It is a true loss.

I was never really a Bond fan growing up so I never really followed the series. Recently one of the cable channels had a marathon which I recorded. I have to say out of all the persons portraying 007, he took the cake.

Aye . He is dead now . 90 years is a good result for anyone.
I lost interest in the man years ago when he decided to meddle in politics, a "professional Scotsman" , tax -exile not living in Scotland and wobbling on about the Scottish Independence referendum. Hey ho. Never speak ill of the dead .

90, we can all wish for!
Goldfinger, yep I remember it well at the drive-in theater along with the lovely teenage girl I made out with in the back seat of my baby blue and white ‘55 Chevy Belair sport coupe! She was a doll! ie, both were dolls! (Chevy and Linda!)

Almost the same for me, only a '56 Bel Air coupe, on Route 202 in Birmingham, PA. Man, those were the days.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
