The opening sequence after the PTS in Goldrfinger takes place in Miami, although it was actually filmed at Pinewood studios.

Connery starred in The Frightened City (1961) an excellent gangster movie set in London. Connery’s performance is very much like his persona in DN.

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Re: Name facts that only two Bond actors had in common

Didn't know about that one CoolHandBond- I must check it out sometime!

On the subject of early Connery appearances, the 1957 movie Hell Drivers stars a young Connery alongside Patrick McGoohan, who turned down the role of Bond in 1973...


Lazenby and Moore are the only Bonds whose physical likenesses do not appear in video games (a small pixelated Dalton appears in the video game based on TLD, Brosnan in Everything or Nothing, Connery in the 2005 FRWL, and Craig in 007 Legends etc.)

McGoohan was one of the producers' first choices prior to Dr No in '62, alongside Richard Burton, David Niven, Cary Grant and others. (McGoohan, then the highest paid star on TV due to the success of Danger Man, turned it down because he felt Bond was too licentious, as I'm sure you know SoD - probably just as well, as where would we be with a Bond who didn't get the girl or carry a gun?  ajb007/amazed )

Re: Name facts that only two Bond actors had in common

"McGoohan was one of the producers' first choices prior to Dr No in '62,"

Interesting. McGoohan was also slated to star in a Rank Organisation film version of Casino Royale in 1959, following Fleming's initial submission of a script to the company based on Moonraker. This would have starred Robert Morley as Le Chiffre but the project collapsed after the producer died suddenly.

Finally McGoohan was apparently approached for LALD but like 1962 turned the role down. A shame as I feel he could have made a decent Bond, at least based on The Prisoner where he plays a secret agent-type. Oh well, we got Roger Moore instead...

I wonder why McGoohan was willing to star as Bond in 1959 if he turned the role down so flatly in 62 and 73. Makes one think he hadn't read the original novels...
