    'Untouchables' Screenwriter David Mamet Shares Touching Sean Connery Story

    The Oscar winner who died Saturday at 90 made a personal call to a Mamet relative who'd fallen on hard times.

    Sean Connery, who died on Saturday at age 90, was nominated just once for an Oscar and won.
    It was for his work in 1987's The Untouchables, in which he played Jimmy Malone, a veteran Irish-American cop who teams up with federal agent Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner) to put Al Capone (Robert De Niro) behind bars.
    Malone's most famous Untouchables monologue and arguably the most memorable line from the film involves a scene in which he advises Ness: "You want to know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That's the Chicago way."
    The author of those words, Untouchables screenwriter David Mamet, shared two stories about Connery with The Hollywood Reporter.
    The first is a reminder of Connery's dry and self-effacing wit.
    "I met Sean [for the first time] on set," says Mamet. "Me: 'I am very pleased to meet you.' Sean: 'I never made a dollar off of James Bond.'"
    The second story involves a gesture of kindness by Connery that forever stuck with Mamet.
    "During post-production [Sean] was in Majorca, and we made a date to speak on the phone," he recalls. "Before our scheduled call my cousin called. She was in Ohio with a failed marriage, a husband who'd just lost his job, and, no doubt, the attendant kids down sick."
    "In any case," he continues, "she was beyond despair. I told her I'd have to get off the phone as I was expecting a call from Sean Connery, and I'd call her back after the business call."
    "'Give him my love,'" the cousin implored. "'Please; I adore him. Tell him first thing.'"
    "Then Sean called. I said, 'My cousin adores you.' He asked about her, and I sighed, and told him the tale of her troubles."
    "'What's her number?'" was Connery's reply.
    "I gave it to him, he rang off, called her in Ohio, and chatted for half an hour. Rest in Peace," Mamet says.

    In honour of him hating people doing impressions of his voice, I'm going to whip this out one last time.

    Q. What time does Sean Connery go to Wimbledon?
