In 1989, Steven Spielberg declared Sean Connery - whom he had just cast as Harrison Ford's father in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - one of the five genuine movie stars in the world. Ten years on, Sean Connery now tops that list. In a career spanning five decades, and crowned by his recent knighthood, Sir Sean Connery has not only achieved global super-stardom, but redefined the screen image of the male. From the iconic cool of James Bond to Indiana Jones's dad, from The Man Who Would Be King to the man who can still convincingly seduce the thirty year old Catherine Zeta Jones in Entrapment, Sean Connery has come to embody an ideal of masculinity and virility. More than just an actor, Sean Connery is also a sex symbol, golf fanatic, father figure and above all else, a Movie Star. This book tells the story of the man now most regularly voted 'Sexiest Man Alive'.From his crucial casting as James Bond and his later rejection of the role in the early 1970s, to his rediscovery by a younger generation of filmmakers and his powerful seam of roles as a father figure to younger stars (culminating in his long overdue Oscar for The Untouchables), it charts Connery's path to his now unassailable status as a role model, a star and a potent sex symbol.
