Sean Connery Rocked a Scarlet Mankini In 1974 Sci-Fi Movie “Zardoz”

Zardoz (1974) is definitely one of the weirdest movies ever made. Set in the year 2293 on a post-apocalyptic Earth, Zardoz is a science fiction film written, produced and directed by John Boorman and stars Sean Connery in the main role as Zed, who dressed in a scarlet mankini, his plaited ponytail flowing in the breeze, escapes the thrall of the Eternals and smashes their regime.

Connery wasn’t much in demand at the time so he decided to get some quick cash and recognition by doing this movie. Little did he know that the photo of him posing in this ridiculous embarrassing outfit will become iconic…

As a matter of fact this movie has gathered a cult following over the years thanks to Sean Connery’s awkward outfit and “it’s so bad that it’s good” rating of the movie itself. Every year hundreds of people cosplay as Zed and keep the memory of Zardoz alive.
