“`Sean Connery has been crowned the best James Bond of all time in a tournament-style poll by the United Kingdom publication Radio Times. More than fourteen-thousand fans took part to decide which actor best portrayed Ian Fleming’s quintessential British secret service agent.

“`Using a system of rounds, Connery slipped by Daniel Craig  (often cited as the best to have played the role) in the first round, fifty-six percent to forty-three percent. Pierce Brosnan then convincingly beat George Lazenby in his heat, with the Irish actor scoring a decisive seventy-six percent of the votes. An upset in round three saw the hugely popular Roger Moore lose to Timothy Dalton, with Moore receiving forty-one percent over Dalton’s forty-nine percent.

“`The final round saw Dalton pitted against Connery and Brosnan, with the Scotsman coming out on top with forty-four percent of the voting. Dalton and Brosnan nabbed second and third place, respectively.

“`Connery is the most prolific Bond actor, having appeared in seven movies: and Never Say Never Again. Craig will appear in his fifth movie in the franchise, No Time to Die, later this year, with the film delayed from its original April release date due to the Covid 19 pandemic.  It is now scheduled for release on November 20th.

“`Upon hearing about this latest accolade, I am sure Connery was shaken, not stirred.
