Every aficionado has his favourite James Bond actor: mine is definetely Sean Connery – the tough guy, his machismo ready beneath the polished persona.

Fleming also endowed Bond with many of his own traits

Bond’s tastes are also often taken from Ian Fleming’s own as was his behaviour, with Bond’s love of golf and gambling mirroring Fleming’s own. Fleming used his experiences of his espionage career and all other aspects of his life as inspiration when writing, including using names of school friends, acquaintances, relatives and lovers throughout his books.

James Bond portrayed by

List of James Bond actors: Sean Connery (1962–1967, 1971, 1983), Roger Moore (1973–1985), Timothy Dalton (1987–1989), Pierce Brosnan (1995–2002), Daniel Craig (2006–2021).

There is now a lively debate on the best Bond movie ever, with most major film critics giving the top mark to either “From Russia with Love” (Connery’s favourite) or its brassy follow-up, Goldfinger.
Some reviewers have also warmed to “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” – it might have been the best James Bond film ever had Connery appeared in it. I’ve tried to transform the Bond and its manors to the next level : 2007, the year of 007.
My dear, uncooperative Domino.

James Bond 007: Goldfinger


The powerful tycoon Auric Goldfinger has initiated Operation Grand Slam, a cataclysmic scheme to raid Fort Knox and obliterate the world economy. James Bond, armed with his specially equipped Aston Martin, must stop the plan by overcoming several outrageous adversaries.

Fleming also endowed Bond with many of his own traits, including sharing the same golf handicap, the taste for scrambled eggs and using the same brand of toiletries. On another occasion, Fleming said: “I wanted the simplest, dullest, plainest-sounding name I could find, ‘James Bond’ was much better than something more interesting, like ‘Peregrine Carruthers’. Exotic things would happen to and around him, but he would be a neutral figure—an anonymous, blunt instrument wielded by a government department.

My dear girl, there are some things that just aren’t done. Such as, drinking Dom Perignon ’53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs.
Principal photography on Goldfinger commenced on 20 January 1964 in Miami, Florida, at the Fontainebleau Hotel; the crew was small, consisting only of Guy Hamilton, Broccoli, Adam, and cinematographer Ted Moore. Sean Connery never travelled to Florida to film Goldfinger because he was filming Marnie elsewhere in the United States. Miami also served as location to the scenes involving Felix’s pursuit of Oddjob.
Broccoli earned permission to film in the Fort Knox area with the help of his friend, Lt. Colonel Charles Russhon.
To shoot Pussy Galore‘s Flying Circus gassing the soldiers, the pilots were only allowed to fly above 3,000 feet. Hamilton recalled this was “hopeless”, so they flew at about 500 feet, “and the military went absolutely ape”.
