GLASGOW, Scotland, March 12 (UPI) -- Scottish film great Sean Connery reportedly has finished his autobiography "Being a Scot," which is to be published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson this fall.

The Scotsman newspaper said the book, which features 400 photos from the actor's collection, combines Connery's life story with a look at Scotland's history and culture.

"I'm very excited about this book," publisher Alan Samson told the Scotsman. "There's a book called 'England Made Me.' This is really how Scotland made me. We can't pretend it's something it isn't. It is not a book of titillating revelations about the women in his life, nor will it be sold that way."

"The book really reflects the life and film achievements of this extraordinary man. It reflects topics of Scottish culture, high and low," added Murray Grigor, Connery's longtime friend and the co-author of the book.

Connery, 77, has appeared in dozens of films, including "The Untouchables," "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," "The Hunt for Red October" and "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen."

He also played secret agent James Bond in movies such as "Never Say Never Again," "Goldfinger," Diamonds are Forever" and "Dr. No."
