Caine On Coat Duty For Fighter Connery

SIR MICHAEL CAINE once held on to SIR SEAN CONNERY's coat while the former BOND star grappled with four men in a club.
The legendary actors were pals in the 1960s as they carved out showbusiness careers, and they enjoyed raucous nights in and out while living in London.
And Caine soon witnessed the Scottish hunk's strength after Connery lost his famous temper with a group of men mocking a girl band at a nightspot.
He recalls, "In my early 20s I was running around with Sean and Terence Stamp. Every girl in London was running after us. Sean used to have parties called 'Bring a Bottle and a Bird'. I couldn't afford a bottle then, so I took two birds (girls).
"I was 23 and Sean was 26 and he had just got into the chorus of South Pacific. He was Mr Edinburgh at that time and built like Arnie Schwarzenegger.
"Sean got into all that bodybuilding stuff. One Saturday night he walked into a party where I was with two beautiful girls. He saw me and we became friends.
"Once, we were in a club and some girls were on stage trying to sing. Some guys behind us were giving them a hard time, so Sean just got up and beat all four of them up. I just held his coat!"
