I just read a story about Sean Connery being a bad ass. While filming this movie with actress Lana Turner, her boyfriend Johnny Stompanato who was the body guard to LA gangster Mickey Cohen stormed onto set, pointing his gun at Connery because he thought he was banging his girlfriend. Connery takes the gun from him and beats him and the guy flees from the set.
This was back in 1958, Johnny ended up being stabbed to death by Turner's teenage daughter while he was beating her mother. She got off on justifiable homicide. Hollywood was fucked up back in the day.
