Topic: "OK Connery" the movie (1967)

So I'm channel surfing when all of a sudden I see Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell). I continue to watch, and more and more faces from 1960's Bond movies start to appear. It's basically a spy flick starring Sean's supporting cast. I can only imagine how pissed off Cubby Broccolli was.....(unless he had a cut of the action..........)

And starring Sean's brother.

Exactly. Neil Connery, I think.

I'm checking it in youtube, it's very funny. Connery could very well play the young character that his brother played in "The Russia House"!

I've only seen the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version. It's pretty funny and well-worth a watch.

Re: "OK Connery" the movie (1967)

This is him nowadays. Strangely enough, I thought he would look like this...


He looks so much like Sean, but in a gentler sort of way. They could have offered him the Bond part in 1968. He was the right age, certainly looked the part, and even had more acting experience by then than Lazenby did.

Re: "OK Connery" the movie (1967)

I don't think so, but at least he had done that one movie in 1967 where he met a large part of the Bond cast, and surely he had the right connection to be able to get a few tips on how to play Bond  ajb007/wink . I'm joking of course, but I'm sure at some point the idea must have crossed the producers' minds.

I've read that Connery gave Bernard Lee and Lois Maxwell the cold shoulder during the opening weeks of filming You Only Live Twice because they appeared in OK Connery.

You mean Sean didn't get along with his kid brother?

I think Connery thought that his brother was being exploited.

Re: "OK Connery" the movie (1967)

Yeah, Neil Connery had no acting experience.  He was a roofer.

Despite what some people claim, this was his only acting role - some sites miscredit him as the villainous Bond in "Mad Mission 3: Our Man From Bond Street"; that ain't him.

Re: "OK Connery" the movie (1967)

He did an anti-shoplifting ad a few years after that film.

Re: "OK Connery" the movie (1967)

I can imagine if both of the Connery Brothers did an Ad for anit-Shoplifting  ajb007/lol

Re: "OK Connery" the movie (1967)

During Diamonds, Connery made it up with Maxwell because his brother had told him how during the press for the movie, if he got a difficult question she would nudge him with her ankle and she'd answer it, ie she looked out for him and when Connery heard about this he relented.
