Subject: Sean Connery BBC period drama rediscovered

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/19/10 at 1:51 am

An adaptation of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, starring a young Sean Connery as the title character's lover, has been rediscovered by BBC archivists 49 years after it was first shown.

Claire Bloom played the title role opposite Connery, who starred in the first 007 film, Dr No, a year later.

The drama, which aired on 3 November 1961, is to be released on DVD.

It tells the story of a Russian society woman who puts her marriage in jeopardy by embarking on a passionate affair.

Bloom went on to star in roles including Lady Marchmain in 1980s hit Brideshead Revisited, which earned her an Emmy nomination in the US.

In 1953, she won a film Bafta for most promising newcomer after starring in US film Limelight alongside Charlie Chaplin.
