That would have been Diane Cilento, a very talented actress in her own right
who basically gave up her career when she got married to him

SC was apparently not very nice to her at all

Actually, here's where I come in with the 'well, he would say that...'

Celebrities be advised: live a clean, decent, uncontroversial life, for the BCB vultures leave no bone unpicked.

Seems all of the dullards over at Preludin are coming over here for all their insights into Sean Connery.

Could someone here recommend them any SC films they might have misshed?

Perchance our Sean's towering performance in Darby O'Gill and the Little People* would appeal to Markus.

Which you've found out by visiting Preludin presumably?

Sorry, never received the memo that traffic was only allowed one way.

You're a mature, intelligent man. Why let yourself behave like this?

Was he really that great an actor? He couldn't do a single accent apart from his own. He was the iconic Bond and decent in a few other films ... but great actor? Nah. And has already been pointed out he condoned hitting women and was at best a hypocrite in his "Scottishness" and acceptance of a knighthood.

Sad that he's passed, but at 90 in your sleep is a decent way to go. RIP.

Agree 100%. Definitely a star rather than an actor. And while I'm no fan at all of cancel culture, I reserve the right to personally find a wife-beating tax-exile who witters extensively about nationality low on my respect scale.

Oh good. Another thread completely unnecessarily infested by the infatuation of some on BCB with fucking Preludin?

Who honestly gives a fuck?

it's true that he had "star quality" out the wing-wang and that's all he needed most of the time.
I emphatically do NOT agree that he was a poor actor.

I think his performances in "the Hill", "the molly maguires" and especially "the offence" are extremely good.
