By the Gods!

William Russell and Sean Connery, as Alexander the Great, in ADVENTURE STORY (1961)

Sean died on October 31 at the age of 90. Sean was most famous for playing James Bond. He didn't appear in many PEPLUM productions. Aside from this, he played Robin Hood in ROBIN & MARIAN (1976). His other roles were cameos of sorts, such as King Agamemnon in TIME BANDITS (1981), the Green Knight in SWORD OF THE VALIANT (1984), King Richard in ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES (1991), and King Arthur in FIRST KNIGHT (1995). He was also the voice of the dragon in DRAGONHEART (1996). ADVENTURE STORY, a TV production, is his only straight-forward PEPLUM role. It's good but it's Alexander the Great with a Scottish accent. R.I.P., Sean.
