I grew up watching England RU getting thumped every year by the likes of JJ & his namesake JPR.....

John Bevan who played for Wire was part of it too.

Or ITV, as Cannon & Ball was a tv show for a Saturday night for 9 years for them.

In 1989 they were appearing at The Futurist in Scarborough.  Their cars were parked on the flat roof of the theatre, and our apartment over looked them.  Every night after the performance they would come out and get into their car. One night my daughter went down and got their autographs.

Talking Pictures TV showed the excellent 1957 film Hell Drivers the other day. Sean was the last of the stars of that to go.

Would it be in bad taste to remind everyone of a famous line from one of the Bond films, "No, Mr Bond. I expect you to die."

Yes, it probably would.

The obits I've seen so far all seem to ignore the film "Marnie". Sean Connery and Tippi Hedren. I liked it, but it was controversial.

When they were making the lavish big screen version of Murder on the Orient Express they wanted an all star cast ... and had the philosophy of getting the biggest first then everyone would follow . That was Sean ...which is something when you look at that cast

Someone's just reminded me of his film 'The Hill', which is another great one. And, of course, 'The Man who would be King'.

As a manic Bond fan, Connery has been a major part of my life since I was a kid. We have lost a true great today and I genuinely had a tear in my eye when I saw the news. Rest in peace Mr. Bond, you're drinking martinis and playing baccarat with Roger Moore in that utopian casino in the sky for all eternity now!
