I am sad to say RIP as he was an incredible actor and his style shows through in every role, from Bond to King John in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. He was a staunch supporter of independence for Scotland although he lived in the Bahamas, he said he would return to Scotland when it became independent - probably because he would save tax money.
Sadly there were numerous proven reports of his violence towards women; his mid 60's interview with Playboy stated his willingness to hit women and he repeated that in 1993 although he added the rider " that he would hit a woman but not in the same way as a man". His first wife divorced him for proven violence towards her.
So, a mixed history, but a superb actor for whom Credit must be given for making the Bond series the icon they now are, from 'Dr No" onwards he was truly great.
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
