A JOB TOO FAR FOR SEAN CONNERY?

dfgfg

IT WAS ANOTHER re-make of The Italian Job. 

As bad casting went, 85-year-old Sean Connery reprising the old Michael Caine role of Charlie Croker was surely the worst thing since Telly ‘Kojak’ Savalas played a unisex Rapunzel.

The van exploded. The venerable Scotsman lamented: ‘You’re only supposhed to blow the bloody doorsh off.’

‘Cut! Cut!’ screamed the apoplectic director, ‘No, no, no, Sean! You’re playing a Cockney! You’re supposed to drop your aitches, not add them!’

‘Shurely shome mishtake? …’

 

OH-OH-7! Sean Connery and The Italian Job
