About the Book:

HARD TO FIND BOOK, only a very limited number of copies are still available.

Great Scot tells the accurate, no-holds-barred life of Sean Connery. The story takes you from Connery's birth in 1930 in a working-class district of Edinburgh to the present, where Connery enjoys the respect of the world as one of the most uncompromising of film actors.

Sean Connery became an actor almost by mistake when a friend suggested he answer an advertisement for looking for tall, athletic extras for the touring stage production of the musical South Pacific. From there, he gradually built a reputation until he landed the part of James Bond in Dr No. Determined not to be typecast, he abandoned Bond after five films, but was twice enticed back.

None the less, he shook off the Bond image and built a career as an actor of stature. Biographer John Hunter also chronicles Connery's private life, including his marriages to Diane Cilento and Micheline Roquebrune, his work for charity, and his political involvement in his beloved Scotland.

Great Scot is the definitive biography of a figure adored and admired by cinema-goers he world over: a box of surprises and delights for fans from Alaska to Zimbabwe.

What people say:

"Journalist John Hunter doesn't overstate by giving his tight biography of [Sean Connery] the title Great Scot. Few make it out of the working-class tenements in Edinburgh, from which Connery sprang in 1930, to make a mark on the world stage." — The Montreal Gazette
