    Jimmy Bond was the nephew of Sir James Bond and played by Woody Allen.

    I always like Connery and how he overcame being typed cast in latter years in films like "The Wind and the Lion," "The Man Who Would Be King" (both from 1975), "Time Bandits" (1981), "The Untouchables" (1987), "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989), and "The Hunt for Red October" (1990) among others.

    I'm always still in trouble again

      Sir Sean Connery deserved his knighthood. Very talented actor and person.

        I even liked him in "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" (which Connery loathed).

        "Zadoz"? Not so much.

          I always liked knowing that as he played next to Christopher Lambert in Highlander that Connery was, in real life, of the Clan MacLeod.

              Yuh. It's like one of those trivia bits that add a little more interest to the picture.

                The cynic in me (rogue02.1¾.06) makes me wonder if they chose that clan because it was the one which Connery had descended from.

                  It's possible. He was a very proud Scot, certainly.
