Sean Connery sings

It’s looking like Sean Connery Saturday here at casa de Fausta, so here he is singing – with an Irish accent,

You can read the story behind that scene, and a very nice bio of the great actor at Big Hollywood.

    One of the most rejuvenating movies ever made.

    Why start with part II? The whole movie is of interest:

    [Guy Hamilton also directed] Diamonds Are Forever (1971), Live and Let Die (1973), The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), plus other Hollywood action fare like Force 10 From Navarone (1979) and Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (1985)

    Since DA4ever and TMwtGG are my other two favorites in the early Bond films, and Remo Williams is a surprisingly good and effective film (it was probably meant to be a series “pilot”, but unfortunately did not do as well at the box office as would be required to start a franchise — but I’ve never figured out why not, since it’s a very fun and clever movie*) it says a lot why Goldfinger is so good: Hamilton is an excellent director.

    * I very highly recommend Remo when you’re in the mood for some escapist fare, not to be taken too seriously. Good performances from Fred Ward, Kate Mulgrew, Wilford Brimley, and an absolutely spectacular performance from Joel Grey.

    I gather it plays fast and loose with the series background itself, but, unless you’re a “Remo purist”, you won’t have any problem with it on its own.

    That’s not Connery’s voice. His singing was dubbed by well-known (in the UK) Irish tenor Brendon O’Dowda. O’Dowda isn’t credited in the film, and a lot of movie reviewers (including, apparently, those at “Big Hollywood) simply assue Connery is doing the singing.
