Sean Connery XC

Sean Connery (RIP) Reads C.P. Cavafy’s Epic Poem "Ithaca," Set to the Music of Vangelis https://www.openculture.com/?p=1083166 via @openculture 

This video combines three things that make me happy: the voice of Sean Connery (who passed away today), the music of Vangelis (Blade RunnerChariots of Fire), and the poetry of C.P. Cavafy. Put them all together and you get a blissful soundscape of rolling synth lines, rolling Scottish R’s, and a succession of Homeric images and anaphoric lines. And the video’s quite nice as well.
The first James Bond, the archetypal JB and, as someone said, the last true Hollywood star
