Sean Connery has passed away. He was 90.
For my money, Connery IS James Bond. Connery/Bond’s golf match against Auric Goldfinger is one of the classic bits of golf in the cinema.
Goldfinger: Two holes to go.
Bond: Yes, and all’s square.
Goldfinger: Then you have no objection to increasing the stakes?Bond: No. What did you have in mind?
Goldfinger: Why, the bar of gold you have with you, naturally.
Bond: It’s worth five thousand pounds.
Goldfinger: Oh, I’ll stake cash equivalent.
Goldfinger: Strict rules of golf?
Bond: But of course.
