Sean Connery

Remarkable meeting with the Scot, promoting the only film he's ever directed, and illustrating how it awakened his political consciousness.

Inside Film 1967 29 mins


Connery directed only one film, The Bowler And The Bunnet (1967). The Glasgow shipyard documentary had just been released when the James Bond star met Braden. “I’d never considered myself a particularly political animal at all,” he admits, saying the project " awakened all sorts of dislikes and likes" in him. It's a remarkable interview covering the issues of a society in turbulence.
