“You’re aching my leg!” has become a family joke. But I always liked this movie. Actually, I just really like Sean Connery. :-)
Recently watched a truly bizarre Connery film on Netflix, made after he’d already been in several Bond flicks, so presumably not desperate for work.
“A Fine Madness.”
Who’s gonna save the world when Sean Connery dies?
I’ve read that he was worried about being typecast & deliberately took some rolls that were not in keeping with his mega-star status. I can’t remember any titles, off-hand. But I tried to watch one & it was awful! Even SC couldn’t improve it.
That is a strange pic-
He was in his in his trying to break away from Bond typecasting phase.
Go forth and kill!
Good movie. I enjoyed it the first time around.
I am 54 yrs old and I’ve paid attention (or so I thought) and I have never heard of this Hitchcock film. Dang.
It wasn’t a financial success on its initial release so I wouldn’t be surprised if you hadn’t heard of it.
Alan Napier(later Alfred the Butler on TV’s “Batman” series) plays Connery’s father in the film.
Der Prinz and I got this from Netflix a while back. It was very involving.
