Sean Connery | 25.8. 1930. – 30/31.10.2020.

Sir Sean Connery umro je tijekom no?i, u 90. godini – javnost i medije je obavijestila njegova obitelj. Sir Sean Connery mirno je preminuo u snu, u svom domu na Bahamima.

Gluma?ka karijera trajala mu je preko pet desetlje?a, a 1988. godine osvojio je nagradu Oscar za film Nedodirljivi. Izme?u lepeze ostvarenih uloga, možda je najpoznatiji njegov portret Jamesa Bonda; glumio ga je ?ak sedam puta!

Njegov kazališni debi bio je u Londonu 1951. godine. Tri godine kasnije (1954.) glumio je na britanskoj televiziji BBC gdje je postigao uspjeh u Requiem for a Heavyweight. Nakon toga po?eo je glumiti na filmskom platnu igraju?i manje uloge. Njegova prva važnija filmska uloga bila je u filmu Another Time, Another Place (1958.), gdje mu je partnerica bila Lana Turner. Tako?er je glumio i u velikom filmskom epu iz 1958. godine A Night To Remember. Okušao se i u maštovitom Disneyevom filmu Darby O’Gill and the Little People (1959.), a pojavio se i u filmovima Tarzan’s Greatest Adventure (1959.), The Longest Day (1962.). Godine 1964. glumio je s Tippi Hedren u Hitchcockovom filmu Marnie .

Connery je još uvijek bio relativno nepoznat sve dok nije utjelovio tajnog agenta Jamesa Bonda, u seriji filmova snimljenih prema novelama Iana Fleminga. Ulogu Jamesa Bonda dobio je glasovanjem ?itatelja dnevnog lista Daily Express, a ne kako kaže legenda da su ga producenti Broccoli i Saltzman slu?ajno spazili kroz prozor dok je “kora?ao gipko poput pantere i odmah zarobili”. Konkurenti za tu ulogu bili su mu Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, Trevor Howard, Patrick McGoohan i Roger Moore. Zanimljivo je spomenuti da se Ian Fleming borio “rukama i nogama” da Connery ne dobije glavnu ulogu. Prvi film iz serijala o britanskom tajnom agentu bio je Dr. No (1962.), uslijedili su: Iz Rusije s ljubavlju (1963.), Goldfinger (1964.), Operacija Grom (1965.), Samo dvaput se živi (1967.) i Dijamanti su vje?ni (1971.)

Nakon što se zasitio uloge Jamesa Bonda, Connery se okušao u seriji akcijski filmova kao što su The Wind and the Lion (1974.), The Man Who Would Be King (1975.), i The Great Train Robbery (1981.). Zahvaljuju?i iskustvu ste?enom igraju?i Bonda bio je uspješan i u filmova s temom politi?kih intriga: The Next Man (1976.), Cuba (1979.), Lov na Crveni Oktobar (1990.) i Ruska ku?a (1990.). U filmu The Offence (1973.) glumio je problemati?nog policijskog detektiva.

Godine 1981. vratio se ulozi Jamesa Bonda u filmu Nikad ne reci nikad. To je bio zadnji film iz serijala o Jamesu Bondu u kojem je Connery bio glavni glumac. Za film Nedodirljivi (1987.) osvojio je Oscara i Zlatni globus za ulogu irskog policajca Malonea. Za ulogu Jonesova oca u filmu Indiana Jones i posljednji križarski rat (1989.) nominiran je za Oscara i Zlatni globus. Connery se okušao i kao producent i glumac u filmu Medicine Man (1992.) te kao glumac i izvršni producent u fimovima Rising Sun (1993.), Just Cause (1995.) i Hrid (1996.). Zanimljivija je ?injenica da su ra?unalni animatori prou?avali Conneryeve geste i mimiku lica ne bi li ih prenijeli na ra?unalom kreiran lik i kretnje zmaja u filmu Dragonheart.

Donosimo i IMDb Supercut Seana Conneryja; podsjetimo se njegovih najupe?atljivijih uloga i pogledajmo film. Mi ?emo pogledati Lov na Crveni Oktobar, njemu u ?ast.


Sir Sean Connery died overnight, at the age of 90 – his family informed the public and the media. Sir Sean Connery died peacefully in his sleep, at his home in the Bahamas.

His acting career spanned over five decades, and in 1988 he won an Oscar for Untouchables. Among the array of accomplished roles, perhaps his most famous is his portrait of James Bond; he played it as many as seven times!

His theatrical debut was in London in 1951. Three years later (1954) he starred on British television BBC where he achieved success in Requiem for a Heavyweight. After that, he started acting on the movie screen playing smaller roles. His first major film role was in Another Time, Another Place (1958), where his partner was Lana Turner. He also starred in the great 1958 film epic A Night To Remember. He also tried his hand at the imaginative Disney film Darby O’Gill and the Little People (1959), and also appeared in Tarzan’s Greatest Adventure (1959) and The Longest Day (1962). In 1964, he starred with Tippi Hedren in Hitchcock?s film Marnie.

Connery was still relatively unknown until he embodied secret agent James Bond, in a series of films based on Ian Fleming?s short stories. He got the role of James Bond by a vote of a Daily Express reader, not as legend has it that producers Broccoli and Saltzman accidentally spotted him through the window as he “walked lithely like a panther and was immediately captured.” His competitors for the role were Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, Trevor Howard, Patrick McGoohan, and Roger Moore. It?s interesting to mention that Ian Fleming fought ?hands and feet? to keep Connery from getting the lead role. The first film in the series about a British secret agent was Dr. But (1962), followed by From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Operation Thunder (1965), Only Twice to Live (1967) and Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

After getting fed up with the role of James Bond, Connery tried his hand at a series of action films such as The Wind and the Lion (1974), The Man Who Would Be King (1975), and The Great Train Robbery (1981). Thanks to the experience gained playing Bond, he was also successful in films with the theme of political intrigue: The Next Man (1976), Cuba (1979), The Hunt for Red October (1990), and The Russian House (1990). In The Offense (1973), he played a troubled police detective.

In 1981, he returned to the role of James Bond in the film Never Say Never. It was the last film in the James Bond series in which Connery was the lead actor. For the film Untouchables (1987) he won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for his role as Irish police officer Malone. He was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe for his role as Jones’ father in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). Connery also tried his hand as a producer and actor in Medicine Man (1992) and as an actor and executive producer in the films Rising Sun (1993), Just Cause (1995), and Hrid (1996). More interesting is the fact that computer animators studied Connery’s gestures and facial expressions to transfer them to a computer-generated character and the movements of a dragon in the film Dragonheart.

We also bring Sean Connery?s IMDb Supercut; let?s recall his most memorable roles. We will watch The Hunt for Red October, in his honor.
