Edit Did You Know? Personal Quote: Let me straighten you out on this. Upon the film's initial release, A.
Weiler of The New York Times praised the cast save Connery whom he described as "merely tall, dark, and handsome " and thought the film an "overpoweringly charming concoction of standard Gaelic tall stories, fantasy and romance".
Connery's breakthrough came in the role of British secret agent James Bond. He was reluctant to commit to a film series, but understood that if the films succeeded, his career would greatly benefit.
After departing from the role, Connery returned for the seventh film, Diamonds Are Forever , in All seven films were commercially successful.
James Bond, as portrayed by Connery, was selected as the third-greatest hero in cinema history by the American Film Institute.
Connery's selection for the role of James Bond owed a lot to Dana Broccoli, wife of producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli , who is reputed to have been instrumental in persuading her husband that Connery was the right man.
He was so impressed, he wrote Connery's heritage into the character. Connery's portrayal of Bond owes much to stylistic tutelage from director Terence Young , who helped polish him while using his physical grace and presence for the action.
He took him to dinner, showed him how to walk, how to talk, even how to eat". No's opening, and he became a major sex symbol in film.
Following the release of the film Dr. No in , the line "Bond James Bond", became a catch phrase in the lexicon of Western popular culture.
Three cool monosyllables, surname first, a little curtly, as befits a former naval commander. And then, as if in afterthought, the first name, followed by the surname again.
Connery carried it off with icily disdainful style, in full evening dress with a cigarette hanging from his lips. The introduction was a kind of challenge, or seduction, invariably addressed to an enemy.
In the early 60s, Connery's James Bond was about as dangerous and sexy as it got on screen". During the filming of Thunderball in , Connery's life was in danger in the sequence with the sharks in Emilio Largo 's pool.
He had been concerned about this threat when he read the script. Connery insisted that Ken Adam build a special Plexiglas partition inside the pool, but this was not a fixed structure, and one of the sharks managed to pass through it.
He had to abandon the pool immediately. Although Bond had made him a star, Connery grew tired of the role and the pressure the franchise put on him, saying "[I am] fed up to here with the whole Bond bit"  and "I have always hated that damned James Bond.
I'd like to kill him". He was, and is, a much better actor than just playing James Bond, but he became synonymous with Bond.
He'd be walking down the street and people would say, 'Look, there's James Bond'. That was particularly upsetting to him". While making the Bond films, Connery also starred in other films such as Alfred Hitchcock 's Marnie and Sidney Lumet 's The Hill , which film critic Peter Bradshaw regards as his two great non-Bond pictures from the s.
Connery had said he wanted to work with Hitchcock, which Eon arranged through their contacts. While the film wasn't a financial success it was a critical one, debuting at the Cannes Film Festival winning Best Screenplay.
Playing two former British soldiers who set themselves up as Kings in Kafiristan , both actors regarded it as their favourite film. Film critic Roger Ebert , who had praised the double act of Connery and Caine in The Man Who Would Be King , praised Connery's chemistry with Hepburn, writing: "Connery and Hepburn seem to have arrived at a tacit understanding between themselves about their characters.
They glow. They really do seem in love". In he portrayed Marshal William T. O'Niel in the science fiction thriller Outland. The title, contributed by his wife, refers to his earlier statement that he would "never again" return to the role.
Although the film performed well at the box office, it was plagued with production problems: strife between the director and producer, financial problems, the Fleming estate trustees' attempts to halt the film, and Connery's wrist being broken by fight choreographer, Steven Seagal.
As a result of his negative experiences during filming, Connery became unhappy with the major studios and did not make any films for two years.
The film was a critical and box office success. Many critics praised Connery for his performance including Roger Ebert who wrote "The best performance in the movie is Connery Harrison Ford said Connery's contributions at the writing stage enhanced the film.
His suggestions to George [Lucas] at the writing stage really gave the character and the picture a lot more complexity and value than it had in the original screenplay".
In , he voiced the role of Draco the dragon in the film Dragonheart. Connery's later films included several box office and critical disappointments such as First Knight , Just Cause , The Avengers , and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen ; however, he received positive reviews for his performance in Finding Forrester He also received a Crystal Globe for outstanding artistic contribution to world cinema.
He sensed during shooting that the production was "going off the rails", and announced that the director, Stephen Norrington should be "locked up for insanity".

He made a pass at her, but she told him she was already happily married with a daughter. Connery was married to actress Diane Cilento from to , though they separated in They had a son, actor Jason Connery.

The ingredients were exotic Technicolored locations, beautiful mostly treacherous women, an evil genius who wants to control the world and spectacular stunts.

For the first time throughout the world, mass audiences were exposed to a type of cinema that relates neither to life nor to any romantic tradition but only to other films and always by sending them up.
In the last of these, Bond is given a book called Instant Japanese by Miss Moneypenny before being sent to the far east.
Connery refused to be typecast, taking roles in several non-Bond films during the same period. Though both stars of the latter film were good, they were in roles obviously tailor-made for Cary Grant and Grace Kelly.
In complete contrast to anything he had done before, Connery played the mutinous inmate of a British military prison camp in north Africa in The Hill , the first of five films he made with Sidney Lumet.
He also gave a wonderfully eccentric performance as a bohemian poet in A Fine Madness Connery directed The Bowler and the Bunnet , a short documentary for STV about how Clydeside shipyard bosses attempted to create a closer relationship with the workers, and in The Molly Maguires , he played a rebellious coalminer in 19th-century Pennsylvania.
Box office returns made the concessions worth it. He refused further inducements to return and Roger Moore , who had been shortlisted for Bond in Dr No, took over for Live and Let Die , proving a lightweight but acceptable substitute.
However, the failure of this melodrama precluded a second movie, although it did give him the opportunity to play a brutal police inspector who has a nervous breakdown after a suspect dies from a beating.
