Sir Sean Connery Dead at Age 90


Recommended Posts

One of the greats.  His role as Jim Malone in The Untouchables was brilliant.  
“You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That's the Chicago way! And that's how you get Capone.”

Rest in Peace.

Not a bad career for a guy that started out as one of the boys in the chorus.

Might have to watch Goldfinger tonight.

RIP Mr. Connery.

I read this morning that he once finished 2nd in a Mr. Universe competition.  Not the typical boy in the chorus for sure.

In addition to a Bond as background noise, I'll have to watch either The Name of the Rose or The Hunt for Red October this weekend.

His comedic timing and delivery was also underappreciated, as the entirety of Last Crusade shows. "Son, I'm sorry....  They got us."

I've watched The Great Train Robbery about 100 times, the last time, last week.  I just might have to tonight.  It was his best role by far.

If anyone read Connery’s obit in the News, the other obit on the page was my Dad’s. 

I think he’d be pleased to share the page with James Bond.

Dude,.. sorry for your loss. Seriously.

Very sorry for your loss sir.  He sure seems like a kind, well-respected and community-minded person based on the obit.

God bless you and your family.

My deepest sympathy to you and your family  Did you or your brother ever go to Kadimah growing up?  I seem to remember your family.

I know so many of his friends, the ones mentioned in the article.  I didn't know your dad.  I'm sorry, my man.  Keep your chin up if you can, and if you can't, I'm a message away.
