Picture of the Week

Lana Turner and Sean Connery on the set of Another Time, Another Place (1958)

Apparently, during the film's principal photography in Britain, Connery was confronted by gangster Johnny Stompanato, Turner's then-boyfriend. Blinded by jealously, Stompanato pointed a gun at Connery and warned him to keep away from Turner. Connery answered by grabbing the gun out of the mobster's hand and twisting his wrist, causing him to run off the set. After Stompanto's death a few months later, it was rumored that an L.A. mobster held Connery responsible, forcing him to go into hiding for a short period.
