    Very rarely does the passing of a celebrity make me sad, but Sean Connery was pretty special.

    "The Hunt for Red October" was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

    Because, apparently, some people are not supposed to die.

    I thought Bond was immortal - he certainly cheated death many times.... ;)

    RIP to a great actor.

    BOND: You expect me to talk?
    GOLDFINGER: No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die.

    The Saturday night live skits with Sean Connery on Jeopardy are awesome. So many great movies as well.

    He was the best Bond IMNSHO. RIP. The one actor that could make a movie with Nick cage in it actually be good.

    I'm old enough to remember those first Bond movies with Connery. In '64's Goldfinger the Aston Martin DB5 made its debut. England's Corgi Toys came out with a detailed die-cast RHD model complete with the pop up bullet shield, ejection seat and extending gun barrels. It was THE hot toy all of us boys in my class pestered our parents for Christmas that year.

    They really lost the plot when they used an AMC Hornet in the 1970s. And even further when they destroyed the DB5 in Skyfall. Sacrilege.

    RIP Sir Connery.

    Sad day... Red October was his best none Bond movie, closely followed by The Untouchables.
    True Scot to the end.

    Fired up “A Bridge Too Far” in the background here. Always chuckle at the “happy orchestra” in the background of a war movie.

    I really can’t believe ya’ll are overlooking the magnificent role played by GA in Goldfinger. I mean really - what’s better than ***** Galore flying in formation with a bunch of Piper Cherokees in the first recorded chem-trail application by general aviation aircraft at Ft. Knox

    One Cherokee 140, one Cherokee B150, two Cherokee B180s and one Cherokee 235, off the line of the Piper dealer in Louisville KY. Motion picture product placement, 1964 style: Note the big "PIPER" decals on the nose of each Cherokee. :)

    Then there's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. At the end they hopped on their horses and rode up the canyon you walk down to get to Petra. BTDT. The exterior is real, the interiors are pure Hollywood sound stage.

    RIP, Sean. You were a great actor in many films.

    He wasn't Russian, he was Lithuanian so maybe that's why, lol.
