Sean Connery, Scottish actor best known for playing James Bond, Die Oct. 31. He was 90-years-old. Connery appeared in seven Bond films from 1962 to 1983, tying Roger Moore for most appearances as a renowned Secret agent. After his days as Bond, Connery continued to act for decades, appearing in movies like Indiana Jones and Last Crusade, Hunt For Red October, and Untouchables, for which he won an Academy Award. Conventional wisdom holds Connery was certainly one of the bestif, not the bestto, ever play Bond. His run of 1960s films, like Dr. No and Goldfinger, helped popularize the character, turning it into the world-famous name we know today. Six actors have now played Bond in 24 movies and all actors to play Bond since have been measured against Connerys iconic portrayal. But what do numbers say? Is Connery still the best Bond based on data? In word: yes. Connerys Bond films average 71. 6 on Metacriticby, far the best of Bond actors. He played Bond in the top two highest rat films, and four of the top six. His worst rat film, Diamonds Are Forever, is still considered a decent Bond film. Meanwhile, Connery ranks second behind Craig in average global box office, after adjusting to 2020 dollars. Craig's movies average 924. 9 million, while Connery's average 776. 1 million. Roger Moore came in third at 601. 8 million. Craigs movies have Connery in part to thank For popularity of character. When Connery debuted as Bond in Dr. No in 1962, Bond wasnt close to household name hed become after Connery left the franchise: Connery appeared in three of five Bond films that grossed more than 800 million, adjusting for inflation. Craig might have a narrow box-office edge, but given the advantages his movies had over Connerys, latters performance might actually be the most impressive. Give that he was also the clear winner in terms of critical acclaim, were inclined to anoint Sean Connery as the greatest James Bond of all Time. In this case, conventional wisdom is indeed wise.
