90, in his sleep, glad he got to live a full life.

Farewell to Mr. Connery, for me the essential Bond, never equaled.

My favorite "non-Bond" Connery film is The Offence (1973), directed by Lumet and a grim, ripping role that showed Sean's acting range went far, far beyond vanquishing supervillains.

Born to a hardscrabble life in Edinburgh in the bygone era of 1930, perhaps that sheds some light on his unfortunate remarks about slapping women.

Later on, I would howl with laughter when Connery was played by Darryl Hammond on Saturday Night Live's "Celebrity Jeopardy."  The first of that long-running skit is embedded in the article below, but as years passed, Hammond's Connery got better -- even saltier and more hostile to Trebek.

RIP, RIP.

After a couple days of reading retrospectives on Sean Connery -- both good and not-so-good -- I found this article that balanced the "creation and durability of Bond" as well as his later, non-Bond roles.

Lots of interesting and lesser-known details, from a site generally known for its conservative reporting...
