To my favourite Cannes winners: Xavier Dolan, Julianne Moore, Alice Rohrwacher, Bennett Miller and the amazing Timothy Spall

Marcello Mastroianni

and to the Festival for giving the 67th poster to Marcello Mastroianni. I covered Cannes from 1976-2001, and he had a festival entry nearly every year. He still holds the record for a Euro star’s most Oscar nominations (three); he won two UK Baftas and a Best Actor at both Berlin and, bien sur, Cannes. A giant!

WELCOME to a unique directory of what you never saw on-screen. The films the stars did NOT make. The movies that never were.
The most definitive collation of casting stories ...
Check up on all the films - of yesterday, today and tomorrow - that your favourite stars never made ... A cast of thousands - well, some 5,751 stars to click on ... More than 40 years in the making!! With 1,316,896 words of spirited text.
The ultimate in movie trivia ... Better! Exactly the kind of history that Hollywood deserves. Back to front. Upside-down. Inside out. Full of flashbacks, close-ups, tracking shots (and, alas some badly edited sequences - sorry about that!) forming a fascinating, new and often bizarre flip-side perspective on your treasured movies ... and stars.

O'Toole Who Fell To Earth poster

Lanky Irishman Peter O’Toole was first choice for The Man Who Fell To Earth. For exactly the same reason that David Bowie succeeded him. Director Nic Roeg wanted “a definite, pointedly stark face.” Or indeed... an extra-terrestrial.

Eric Stoltz started Marty McFly in Back To The Future ...
Eric Stoltz
Michael J Fox finished him.

All the Moriarty's Men
'Twas  Robert De Niro and Michael Moriarty for "Woodstein"  before Hoffman and Redford brought Nixon down.

Godfather Olivier
The Godfather needed the world's best actor - Brando or ... Olivier.


You will find some of our pages have muddling changes of typefaces, colours, spacesand some wordssqueezedtogether. Extremely sorry! As Valmont put it: "It's beyond my control."

This follows improving security. Long story. All (well, most) will be corrected as/when possible over the next months. (This is a one-man band!) Meantime, I trust it will not spoil your pleasure too much.
