Sean Connery, movie star

After minor theater and film roles, Sean Connery became an international movie star in the part of Ian Fleming's novel character, the cynically elegant, womanizing, and humorous killer agent James Bond, in Dr. No (1962).

He played a role in a further six Bond films, the last time in 1983, but also showed talent as a character actor in, among others, A Fine Madness (1966), Murder on the Orient Express (1974), and A Bridge Too Far (1977).

In his older days, Sean Connery played both self-deprecating and disillusioned professionals with solid personal radiance and witty lines, for example, in The Name of the Rose (1986) and The Untouchables (1987). He shone in Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) as the hero's father.

Up through the 1990s, Connery continued in the same vein with, among other things, The Hunt for Red October (1990), The Russia House (1990), and The Rock (1996). In 2000 came the drama Finding Forrester.

Sean Connery filmed his last Hollywood film, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, in 2003. He officially retired from acting in 2006.
