Sean Connery's hairstyle in this movie was based upon composer Jerry Goldsmith's well-known ponytail. Meeting the composer at a cocktail party, Connery started the conversation by saying, "I want your hair." Goldsmith replied, "You can't have it, it's mine." Connery, and even the film's producers themselves, felt Goldsmith's "pulled back ponytail" fit the character of Robert Campbell very well. See more »
