Look, we all know Sean Connery’s the best Bond, but he’s also given cracking performances in some other top films.
Films like these:
A heavy thriller about suspected child abuse, this was Connery flexing his dramatic chops post 007 glitz.
A boy’s own adventure co-starring Michael Caine. Not just one of the best films of the decade, one of the best films of all time.
Blade Runner meets Alien as Connery protects a deep space mining station from mind-bending drugs and the greed of the corporation.
“They pull a knife, we pull a gun.” Connery won an Oscar for his turn as the most Scottish Irish cop in the war against Al Capone.
Ok, alright, this is technically a re-make of Thunderball, but as it’s not part of the official Bond cannon we’re letting it slide. Release the same year as Roger Moore’s Octopussy, NSNA never had much of a chance, but it’s classic Sunday afternoon viewing, nonetheless.
