By the time that filming for "You Only Live Twice" rolled around, Sean Connery had been renowned as the British superspy for a good five years. No matter where he went, fans accosted him and made his life miserable. Even when he went to Japan, he found the phenomenon only intensified. He needed a break, and at times during "You Only Live Twice" he looked a little weary. The franchise was rolling along at full steam, though, so it couldn't wait for him. He finished his duties on "You Only Live Twice," one of the truly iconic James Bond films, and then stepped off the merry-go-round.
