HOLLYWOOD – The Studio Exec is proud to announce that it has been given permission to publish extracts from Sean Connery’s forthcoming memoir Shaken Not Shtrirred.
I first met Loish Maxwell when we were doing a read-through of Dr. No, my first James Bond film. I wash very nervoush and I read my first line with shome trepidation: ‘Ah Missh Moneypenny’.
Loish looked at me astonished.
‘What wash that?’ She shaid.
I repeated the line, a bit nonplusshed. It had sheemed alright to me.
‘But it’s Missh Moneypenny,’ she shaid.
‘That’sh what I shaid,’ I told her. Terrence shaid not to worry I was going to get elocution lesshonsh before the shoot and sho I did.
Three weeksh in Harely Street shaying, ‘She Shells She shells on the She Shore.’ I told them they ought to get one more difficult.
That one wash a walk in the park!
Anyway, shooting began and it all went off brilliantly. Loish became a very good personal friend, even though she was a girl and a bit lippy, and a Canadian to boot!
