The Sean Connery Paradox (also known as Sean Connery vs James Bond) will air on SBS and SBS HD on Saturday, 7 January, 2023 and is now streaming on SBS On Demand.
In 1963, Sean Connery bursts onto the screen as James Bond in ‘Dr. No’, the first episode of a saga that is destined to become legendary. With the secret agent tuxedo, the poor kid from the streets of Edinburgh becomes a global star. The role of James Bond brings Sean Connery fame and fortune. It also becomes his burden. For a long time, the actor seeks to break away from his image of 007, to play more cerebral characters. A slow and difficult emancipation, which he lives as a real quest for himself.
