This has been in the back of my mind since the first James Bond movies back in the dim mists of prehistory (that is, the 1960s).
In DR NO, Connery draws back his right fist - the camera angle changes - and he throws the punch with his left fist.
In FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, when he signs the film title on the photo of the Russian girl, we see it in a tight close-up and the hands certainly do not look like Connery’s hairy, tough mitts.
In the opening gunbarrel sequence to THUNDERBALL, when he turns to fire at the camera, that is the most awkward looking spin and fire I’ve seen in a long time. He looks like he’s about to lose his balance.
There are a number of other times in the films where he seems much more comfortable holding his cigarettes, Vodka Martini glasses, etc in his left hand. I sort of think he was directed to use the pistol with his right hand just to look natural to the audience (most of whom are right-handed).
So does anyone KNOW? Have any of you folk seen him signing autographs or writing, in real life?
Not that this is a major issue, but I’m curious…
