Felicia Farr

  1. Vera Miles, Psycho, 1959.  First reserve… After Grace Kelly went royal, mousey Miles was Alfred Hitchcock’s favourite even though she kept missing films he planned for her due, as Hitch would have put it, to her propensity for procreation. For Janet Leigh’s sister, healso considered Farr, Carolyn Jones, Eleanor Parker, Kim Stanley (not happy about working with Anthony Perkins… and the inevitable unknown (then and now) Caroline Kurney.

  2. Eva Marie Saint, The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming, 1966.     Mrs Jack Lemmon was booked – but pregnant. Another wife had to be found for Carl Reiner.
