Connery died today at age 90. When I think of James Bond he is the one I think of. Hard to think he was 90 years old.

I can't even picture Sean Connery. I'm sure I saw im in the old James Bond role but I haven't seen those in 30 years.

I may have seen him in something more recently, but nothing is memorable.

As your attorney I recommend you watch Diamonds are Forever.

That, and Casino (also Fear and Loathing in LV), are movies I usually watch at least parts of before, during, or after each Vegas trip. This trip I even got my wife to watch most of Fear and Loathing with me the other night while we were here in Vegas.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

I donít even picture Sean Connery when I think of Sean Connery, I picture someone pretending to be Sean Connery in the celebrity Jeopardy skit on SNL where Will Ferrell plays Alex Trebek.

Every baccarat table in the US ought to post a photo of him as Bond.
He put the game on the map as far as the general public was concerned.

I was never a big Bond fan, but loved him in The Man Who Would Be King. I have a poster from The Rock signed by Ed Harris,Nick Cage and Mr. Connery.
Another great movie he did that is rarely seen is The Molly Maguires, a tale of a secret society in the 1890s, formed to fight oppressive mine owners in Pennsylvania.

I remember when Sean Connery said he was getting too old for the role so he retired from doing James Bond
So
The producers get Roger Moore as a replacement, who is older then Sean Connery

DAF gets a bad rap but it is my favorite Bond film. Isn't the guy at the water balloons Jay Sarno? I heard he got a cameo.

Who wouldn't want to stay at The Whyte House?
