James Bond's Highest Honor

Sean Connery, who gained fame playing Cold War secret agent 007 in the James Bond series, and Jason Robards, who won an Oscar for his performance as a Watergate newspaper editor in “All the President’s Men,” will be saluted for lifetime achievement at this year’s Kennedy Center Honors. Also to be honored will be singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder, dancer Judith Jamison and pianist-comedian Victor Borge. The 22nd annual awards will be presented Dec. 4 at a dinner at the State Department. The next day President and Mrs. Clinton will throw a White House reception for the recipients, followed by a gala performance at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, to be taped for TV broadcast later in December.
