Enjoyable, informative but with some frustration.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sean Connery: The Measure of a Man (Hardcover)
This book is very thorough and enjoyable. It discusses the early days of entering the movie scene, the successes, and later the apparent frustrations of a talented actor trying to gain acceptance as a Serious Actor, and to try to escape the Bond mantra.
What I found quite frustrating was the frequent footnotes - referring to where the information was gleaned, although some would say this is essential, but more so from the writer's use of - to me - some very obscure words in his narrative. He is a very talented and well educated writer but this spoilt the book for me. I don't enjoy reading a book with a dictionary constantly at my side.
That said, it will take its place on my bookshelf together with my other Connery books.
