Sean Connery: The Untouchable Hero

Sean Connery: The Untouchable Hero

by Michael Feeney Callan (Author)


Sean Connery is a study in contradiction. Balding, 62, argumentative and reputedely tight-fisted, he is also regarded as one of the sexiest men alive. This biography traces Sean's rise to stardom from the slums of Edinburgh. The book looks at his studying Shakespeare and Shaw in the professional theatre, to the appeal and cash of the movies. After eight years off bit playing, he found his first success with the film Dr No . The Bond films led onto films such as The Name of the Rose , The Untouchables , Highlander and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade . The book draws on the reminiscences of friends and colleagues to create a portrait of one of the world's leading film personalities.
