violentsalvation: "It's all bulls***, completely preposterous," Caine told The Mirror."I did some interviews over in Germany for a new film and I can only assume someone has twisted my words or got the wrong end of the stick."I haven't seen Sean for a couple of years, but my wife and I spoke to him on the phone on his birthday this week and he was very well."He was fine, in complete control of his senses and his usual self."This stuff about Alzheimer's is just nonsense.

zipdog: The bad news is that Sean Connery has lost memory about his career. The good news is that Zardoz was part of that memory loss.
