Sir Sean Connery died on Saturday at the age of 90. Connery, originally from Edinburgh, was the first actor to play the role of the fictional British secret service agent James Bond. He appeared in a total of 7 James Bond films.
Although he’s no longer with us, this great Scot has left his fans a lot of work in his four decades of film career. Today you should watch (or re-watch) these films of the legendary actor.
1. The man who would be king
In this adventure film, Connery was paired with another giant of British cinema – Michael Caine. The Man Who Would Be King was adapted by John Huston and Gladys Hill from the Rudyard Kipling novella of the same name. Connery and Caine play the role of the British Army NCOs who embark on a little adventure and end up in Kafiristan (a real-world region fictionalized for the novel) after facing dacoits, elemental powers, etc. The film is one of those little-known gems that more people need to discover and see.
2. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Connery only casually stepped into the Indiana Jones movie and managed to outdo Harrison Ford in his own movie. The movie is super fun and one of the best movies in the entire franchise.
Regarded by many as * the * James Bond movie, the movie was Connery’s third foray as a spy. In the film, Bond investigated a gold magnate named Auric Goldfinger and discovered his nefarious contraband ring. This was the film that defined the rest of Conney’s Bond films, and indeed the entire franchise. Goldfinger gave the franchise staples like the spy’s preference for Aston Martins.
While Goldfinger is often referred to as the greatest Bond movie ever made, Dr. No, not even the first 007 film. It was a solid film of thrills, humor, and gripping action – a formula that’s the norm for the franchise today.

5. The untouchables
In Brian De Palma’s multi-star, Sean Connery played an Irish cop who helps Kevin Costner’s Bureau of Prohibition agent bring down Al Capone (Robert De Niro). In the film, Connery gave a powerful performance that earned him an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
