The news of the death of actor Sean Connery , at the age of 90, shocked the whole world for his extensive career in the film industry and it is clear that he will always be remembered as the “best James Bond of all time”, a role with which he played the opportunity to confront big drug lords in no less than Mexico.
The emblematic agent 007 focused its activities in our country on two occasions. The first against a powerful criminal and the second against Ernst Stavro Blofeld, who in the film was the supervillain and head of the fictional criminal organization SPECTER.
In the film released in 1964, Bond had the opportunity to demonstrate his skills against Mexican drug traffickers, who died trying to continue their illicit activities and the commercialization of heroin.

This meeting was recorded in the pre-credits scene of the remembered film starring Sean Connery and which focused on James' fight against Auric Goldfinger , who is a renowned magnate who specializes in smuggling gold internationally.
But in the opening scenes of Goldfinger , the famous secret agent attacked and bombed a drug complex belonging to a Mexican drug lord that they identified as “Ramírez.”
After this episode, James Bond went to a local cabaret to meet with another undercover agent who asked him to go to Miami, Florida, where he would face a new adventure.
“Mr. Ramírez and his friends will no longer bother you … I recommend that you no longer return to your hotel because they will be watching you. There is a plane that leaves for Miami at 1 pm ”, assured the mysterious agent.
“Now they will not be able to continue trafficking in heroin to finance revolutions,” replied the famous Bond.
At the conclusion of this dialogue, James heads to the cabaret star's dressing room where he clashed with a criminal after interacting romantically with the dancer.
Diamonds Are Forever
The film released in 1971 portrays a new meeting between James Bond and a dealer, but this time with diamonds.
Agent 007 impersonates an actual smuggler named Peter Franks, allowing him to meet up with the gang's contact, Tiffany Case.
After a tough encounter with the real Franks, Bond manages to sneak into the upper echelons of the criminal organization that traffics in diamonds.
In the middle of his investigation he discovers his great enemy, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, who is the head of the fictional criminal organization SPECTER, involved.
Thus James Bond stars in an intense chase for an oil platform, located on the Pacific coast, in Baja California, Mexico.

Sean Connery died in his sleep on October 31 at the age of 90 and was in the Bahamas . The death occurred after a long struggle against a disease that was not defined by his relatives.
His son Jason told the BBC some details of the death of the historic actor: “A sad day for everyone who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all the people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor. ”.
He is originally from a humble neighborhood in Edinburgh. Thomas Sean Connery was the first-born son of Joseph, sometimes a worker, sometimes a truck driver, and always a Catholic; and Effie, a Protestant cleaning worker.
Connery opened the James Bond series with 007 against Dr. No in 1962 alongside Ursula Andress. Fleming, who at first did not love him because of his accent, was so amazed that he introduced a father from Scotland in recognition of the saga. The Scottish actor played the British spy seven times before being replaced by Roger Moore.
He also participated in titles such as “Murder on the Orient Express” (1974), “The Name of the Rose” (1986), “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” (1989) and “The Avengers” (1998). Remarkably, in 2012, he voiced the protagonist of the animated film “Sir Billi”.
