Now that Sean’s dead, it’s time for the rats to come out of the woodwork and start destroying his legacy as a powerful and respected white man.
The director of No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond film, has said that Sean Connery’s version of the character was “basically” a rapist.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Cary Fukunaga appeared to refer to a scene in 1965’s Thunderball in which Connery’s Bond forcibly kisses a nurse (played by Molly Peters) who has spurned his advances. In a later scene, Bond suggests he will keep quiet about information that could cost her her job if she sleeps with him. “I suppose my silence could have a price,” he says.
If you watch the scene, you’ll notice that the female character shows a playful smile as she pretends to resist.
Have the people saying this stuff ever met a woman?
Peter’s character backs away, saying: “You don’t mean … oh, no,” before Bond replies “Oh, yes”, pushes her into a sauna and takes off her clothes.
“Is it Thunderball or Goldfinger where basically Sean Connery’s character rapes a woman?” said Fukunaga. “She’s like ‘No, no, no,’ and he’s like, ‘Yes, yes, yes.’ That wouldn’t fly today.”
It would fly in Islamic countries for sure. Lots of things fly in Islamic countries. Even the homosexuals fly, although only for a short while.
Moslem men would find Sean Connery’s approach to dealing with women quite light.
No Time to Die is being touted as the Bond film with the most power parity between the male and female characters. Lashana Lynch – who plays one of two Black female main characters – supposedly inherits the 007 designation from Bond at the end of the film. Many expect Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s involvement in the scriptwriting process will advance the feminist credentials of a franchise whose appeal was forged in a previous era.
The film’s executive producer Barbara Broccoli, who has been producing Bond films since 1995, said: “I think people are coming around – with some kicking and screaming – to accepting that stuff is no longer acceptable. Thank goodness. Bond is a character who was written in 1952 and the first film [Dr No] came out in 1962.”
That’s an interesting way to admit that this whole consent thing has been a massive brainwashing campaign.
