Page 1 of Sean Connery another sad loss
this year has been a nightmare with so many deaths but this one is sore, my old man told me many stories about being a milk man with him in Edinburgh and seemingly he was a shagger even then :) will always be the 1 true bond. RIP Big Tam :(
90, not a bad innings
Sir Sean died overnight in his sleep, while in the Bahamas. It is understood he had been unwell for some time.hopefully a peaceful way to go
The one and only true Bond. RIP.
Not a surprise but still a shock.
Would recommend The Hill as one of his best films, a far cry from Bond.
RIP, so many movies...

Here is something not well know.....
Although Sir Sean Connery retired from acting/major filming in 2006, he decided to voice act in one last film for his grandchildren, where he voiced an animated character in a film called Sir Billi in 2012, out on DVD in 2013.
Decided to buy it secondhand on Ebay for my grandchildren to watch, as i am interested to see his last performance.

The Hill is an excellent film, saw it a couple of decades ago for the first time. As a military man, this was of interest and then a bit more when I saw Connery was playing a tankie...
Word of warning..Sir Billi DVD story was so drastic and mental, I am not showing it to the Grandchildren.
Starts off Sir Billie lives with a goat called Gordon inside his house, has crazy police searching for illegal beaver in the highlands, all animals have tracksuits on, and talk with illegible Glasgow accents on high pitch, plus a mad american woman played by Ruby Wax, and a lookalike donald duck in a bi-plane narrating the story from the skies.
It is now in the charity pile, to be put though the charity shop door when I am in the village next week. Let someone else try to understand it LOL.
