Harrison Ford didn’t judge me as a very affectionate guy, but he made one small exception in honor Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade costar Sean Connery, who passed away last weekend at the age of 90.
Read the Harrison Ford Sean Connery tribute below.
“He̵7;s my dad … not in life … but in ‘Indy 3’,” Ford told Variety this week, after Connery’s death. “You can’t know the joy until someone pays you to drive Sean Connery on the side car of a Russian motorcycle bouncing on the bumpy, winding mountain trail and looking at him. I retorted. God we were happy – if he was in heaven, I hope they have a golf course. Rest in peace, dear friend. “
Connery played Ford’s father, Stoic Doctor Henry Jones, Sr., in 1989 Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Here is a scene from the movie Ford is referencing to his memory:
You can actually see Connery squirming around at: 33 in that video. And man, what a wonderful overall performance. I love the glimpse of joy that glimpsed Connery’s face as he realizes that Ford is about to attack a Nazi soldier, and the way he quickly returns to his stern dad’s shoulder at the end of the conflict, alleviate Indy’s ego in the process. What a wonderful dynamic between these two actors… and their moment at the end of the movie – the “Indiana… let it go” moment? For me all the time. He’s not perfect in front of the camera, but he’s an actor.
Many have some more memories of Connery, but the only other one that I will include here comes from Ford’s. Star Wars director and The Last Crusade Dong Van George Lucas.
“Sir Sean Connery, through his talent and direction, has left an indelible mark on film history,” said Lucas. “His audience spans generations, each with his favorite roles he plays. He will always hold a special place in my heart as Indy’s father. With a clever mighty aura and a sense of playful mischief, only someone like Sean Connery can instantly make Indiana Jones feel remorse or relief through a harsh or cheerful hug of a person. dad. I am very grateful for having been fortunate to know and work with him. My thoughts are with his family ”.
