Here's a vintage Sean Connery interview from Belgian television. The description says its from 1969 but it must have been filmed in 1968, as Connery refers to the still undetermined American presidential election between Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey. He also discusses his observations about American life, how success has affected him, his retirement from the James Bond role (he gives a nod to the "new" 007, George Lazenby) and discusses making his recent western "Shalako" with Brigitte Bardot.
The New York Times has a rare interview with Japanese actress Mie Hama, one of the few female sex symbols of 1960s cinema to break through to international audiences thanks to her appearance opposite Sean Connery in the 1967 007 classic "You Only Live Twice". Like many actresses who found cult status through the Bond films, Hama wore the mantle of fame somewhat uneasily and retired from acting at an early age to lead a more conventional life. She is still well-known in Japan thanks to the many dozens of films she had appeared in but today she is also known as a popular advocate for self-help theories. Click here to read.
