No (Special Edition)
The first in the long string of
James Bond pictures and considered by many to be the best. Sean Connery
stars as the super British secret service agent "007", dispatched to Jamaica
in order to penetrate a mad scientist's secret laboratory. The mysterious
No has been using a nuclear device to disrupt rocket launchings out of
Cape Canaveral and it's up to Bond to stop him.
Russia With Love
The second James Bond is considered
by many fans to be the best of them all. Certainly Sean Connery was never
better as the dashing Agent 007, whose latest mission takes him to Istanbul
to retrieve a top-secret Russian decoding machine. His efforts are thwarted
when he gets romantically distracted by a sexy Russian double agent (Daniela
Bianchi), and is tracked by a lovely assassin (Lotte Lenya) with switchblade
shoes, and by a crazed killer (Robert Shaw), who clashes with Bond during
the film's dazzling climax aboard the Orient Express.
Connery - Other Movies
Only Sean Connery can believably
seduce women so effortlessly, kill with almost as much ease, and then pull
another bottle of Dom Perignon '53 out of the fridge. Goldfinger contains
many of the most memorable scenes in the Bond series: gorgeous Shirley
Eaton (as Jill Masterson) coated in gold paint by evil Auric Goldfinger
and deposited in Bond's bed; silent Oddjob, flipping a razor-sharp derby
like a Frisbee to sever heads; our hero spread-eagle on a table while a
laser beam moves threateningly toward his crotch.
Connery is back in the seventh
Bond film and the first to utilize American locations. Bond follows diamond
smugglers to Las Vegas where a Howard Hughes-like millionaire appears to
be using them in a deadly space weapon. Academy Award Nominations: Best
The fourth film in the Bond series
finds the super spy battling a powerful organization named S.P.E.C.T.R.E,
which has threatened to destroy Miami with an atomic weapon unless a huge
ransom is paid. Plenty of gimmicks, Oscar-winning special effects and amazing
bond girls. Academy Award Nominations: Best Special Visual Effects.
Say Never Again
Connery, as suave as ever, returns
to the role that made him an international star. This time Bond must stop
a power hungry madman who attempts to extort the world's major governments
in a story that revisits "Thunderball."
Only Live Twice (1967) VHS
Classic James Bond thriller set
in the Orient in which the suave super-spy does battle with an evil mastermind
whose goal is world domination brought about by war between the super powers.
Screenplay by Roald Dahl.
