In letter form to Famous Films, N.V, New York, New York, relating to Connery's compensation for the film, The Great Train Robbery
Document Signed: "Sean Connery" in blue ink, ¾p, 8½x11. No place, March 1, 1978. Begins: "Gentlemen". In full: "Reference is made to the contract entered into between Famous Films, N.V. and Renoba, a Lichtenstein Anstalt, dated as of November 15, 1977, relating to the above project and to Renoba furnishing my services, all as more specifically detailed in such contract. I hereby agree as follows: 1. That Renoba is now, and will be at all times during the term of said contract and at all other times when my services may be rendered or required thereunder, authorized to furnish my services to you as therein provided; and 2. That I will look solely to Renoba for all compensation for my services under said contract, and you shall have no obligation to compensate me for any servicees to be performed by me or for any rights granted to you thereunder." The Great Train Robbery (1979), a remake of the 1903 classic, was a dramatization of the first hold-up of a moving train in England (1855), starred Connery (b. 1930) as Edward Pierce, the brains behind the operation. Directed by Michael Crichton, the film also starred Donald Sutherland as Agar, the safe-cracker who provided the finesse, and Wayne Sleep as Chilly Willy, who was the brawn for the conspirators. Scottish-born actor Sean Connery (born Thomas Sean Connery in 1930) won the Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for The Untouchables in 1987. Connery, who has appeared in a number of feature films, is best known for his James Bond series, beginning with Dr. No in 1962. Connery next played the dapper secret agent in From Russia With Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964, the film that made him a superstar), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967, when he first swore he was through with the role) and Diamonds Are Forever (1971) before briefly returning as Bond in 1983's Never Say Never Again. Among Connery's other feature films are Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989, for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for playing Harrison Ford's father). Lightly creased. Usual black marks from photocopying at upper and left blank margins. Fine condition.
