Description

This biography of Sean Connery takes the reader from Connery's birth in 1930 in a working-class district of Edinburgh to the present as one of the most uncompromising of film actors. Connery became an actor almost by mistake when a friend suggested he answer an advertisement for extras for the touring stage production of "South Pacific". From there, he gradually built a reputation until he landed the part of James Bond in "Dr No". Determined not to be typecast, he abandoned Bond after five films, but was twice enticed back. The author also chronicles Connery's private life, including his marriages to Diane Cilento and Micheline Roquebrune, his work for charity and his political involvement in his beloved Scotland.
