The article presents comments from several directors who have directed Sean Connery movies. Sidney Lumet who has directed five Connery movies said that the Bond movies wasn't much of an acting for Connery but with the movie "The Hill," Connery's acting was sensational and is widely regarded as one of his best performances. John McTiernan who directed the movie "The Hunt for Red October" said that Connery is the type of person who is comfortable with his own skin.
