Festival Reviews

Born: August 25, 1930 in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Married to:
Micheline Roquebrune (6 May 1975 – present)

I never disliked Bond, as some have thought. Creating a character like that does take a certain craft. It’s simply natural to seek other roles.

One thought on “Happy Birthday: Sean Connery

  1. Happy Birthday Sean Connery

    Sean was born on this day in the nation
    Where scotch whisky’s the favored libation
    And where bagpipes are played
    In a yearly parade
    For their patron saint’s glorification

    As an actor he struggled at first
    But his fortunes were quickly reversed
    When he landed the role
    Of a globetrotting mole
    With a limitless sexual thirst

    ‘Dr. No’ was the sixties debut
    Of James Bond, who was eager to screw
    Any woman he met
    Who could make him erect
    During risky assignments he drew

    In ‘From Russia With Love’ he revived
    The same part Ian Fleming devised
    In the stories he wrote
    As an author of note
    Who enjoyed writing yarns about spies

    Then in ‘Goldfinger’ Pussy Galore
    Was employed as a high flying whore
    By a man who had much
    Precious metals and such
    But was keen to acquire much more

    ‘The Untouchables’ featured Sir Sean
    As a cop who fights hammer and tong
    To bring down Al Capone,
    Who was bad to the bone
    Since the day he emerged from his Mom

    ‘Family Business’ was not well received
    By the critics, who mostly believed
    That the movie did not
    Contain much of a plot
    And its actors all under-achieved

    So let’s wish Happy Birthday to Sean
    Who is known from UK to Taiwan
    For his rugged good looks
    And his killing of crooks
    When he played secret agent James Bond
