Well, here he is, Sean Connery's little brother, Neil as who else, Dr. Neil Connery! This was Neil's first role, and he's not really a bad actor at all! With all the bullshit he probably had to put up with, you can't hardly blame him for quitting the business after 2 movies, and 8 TV shows!
Dr. Connery is also an archer of the highest caliber! You'll understand why this is important by the time it gets to the end!
Shot from this angle, Neil does look remarkably like brother Sean!
Here's a tricky gadget that gets used more than once! It looks like a simple knife, but the blade shoots out like a bullet, and the victim is always taken off guard!!
Mildred's sense of fashion is otherworldly! Mildred was played by Agata (How To Kill 400 Duponts) Flori! This is also a good spot to tell you that the music in "O.K. Connery" was created by the two biggest names in Italian movie music, Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai!! The title song was sung by Christy, and was as 007 as they could make it! I chose to give you a sample of something a little different, from that pink wig scene where you see those guys walking around with guitars at the airport! Here's a little 1960's Italian Pop music!
There sure isn't anything the least bit suspicious looking about a group of beautiful can-can dancers out in the middle of absolutely nowhere!
Here's the guy pulling all the strings on the bad side! Once again, who did they use for a villain in this movie? One of the always memorable James Bond baddies, Adolfo Celi, as Largo in "Thunderball" from a year earlier, was the go to guy! They went to all the time to set up this shot, I just had to use it!
I just had to show you this shot of Beta and his boys in all their fancy matching outfits down in the underground headquarters!
Okay, now you know why it was important to know that Dr. Connery was also a master bowman! He has a lot of archer buddies he brought along on this journey because he knew he would need them! It's too much when you first see them ride up on horses, way too much!!
And of course there's the final hoedown showdown between Beta, who also happens to be a master bowman, and the good Doctor!
"O.K. Connery" is a weird movie in more than one way for sure! You can find it streaming on Amazon Prime for free if you have one of those accounts, and you can give yourself a concussion, or come to your own conclusion, whichever happens first!
