Connery a year before Bond in On The Fiddle

I didn't really watch On The Fiddle when it was on UK tv the other day but was interested to discover Sean Connery was 2nd billed to Alfred Lynch (Dirk Bogarde's side kick in The Password Is Courage)in the very same movie. Connery came over as simple, whimpy, stooge to con man Alfred Lynch, who inlisted in the army to avoid going to jail. It was almost hard to credit a yr later Connery would become hardman spy James Bond.

Mind you I remember Daniel Craig playing a bully, who turns out to be a wimp on an episode of the hit UK satire sit com Drop The Dead Donkey,just a few yrs before he took over the Bond mantle in Casino Royale
