Sean Connery has been a motion picture staple for decades playing dramatic roles and even comedic ones, all with his own distinctive flair and no-nonsense attitude. Despite how harsh Hollywood can be, Connery has always given 110% no matter the role. Some might complain that none of his Bond movies are on this list, that’s because I wanted to focus on his work aside from playing the iconic super sly secret agent. To quote Goldie Hawn’s character in the 1996 comedy First Wives Club, when referencing Connery, “He’s 300 years old but he’s still a stud!” In honor of his 83rd birthday today, here are the Top 10 Sean Connery movies.
10. First Knight
This 1995 romantic drama had Connery playing the famed King Arthur, who fell for Guinevere (Julia Ormond), who fell for Lancelot (Richard Gere). The story of the Knights of the Round Table was a perfect one for Connery, who exuded stature and bravery throughout the film. Though critics were mixed with their reviews, die hard Connery fans couldn’t deny he was perfect for the role.
