A Honest Trailer for Sean Connery as James Bond

The latest video from Screen Junkies is less an Honest Trailer and more of a tribute to the original James Bond played by Sean Connery. His agent 007 was the ultimate role model for 1960s men- skilled, handsome, brave, sophisticated, clever, cool, and very lucky. He was also attractive to the women who could buy into the misogyny and objectification of the time. It was a standard formula, but one that worked. The Connery Bond movies were far from perfect, but they were enjoyable in a simple way.
