Sean Connery on the Verge of Stardom

Sean Connery Dr. No
Sean Connery.

What you see is a man whose life is about to change forever. Sean Connery, unknown Irish actor and former weightlifter, had filmed a genre spy flick that was no different than so many others. In no way could it hope to compare with Alfred Hitchcock's "North By Northwest" of a few years previously, at best it would not be embarrassed by the comparison.

Well, "Dr. No" premiered on October 5, 1962, and unknown Sean, unknown Ian Fleming, and little-known James Bond became household names. And the life of the man in the picture would never be the same. Make the shot, Sean, we're counting on you.
