"Nearly every woman I know in Hollywood has been ‘Weinsteined’ at some point ... If not by him, then by someone else." Lisa Guerrero

"I don’t know if I want to work for Disney." Dave Bautista. A real hero (so far)

"This is my first priest… I’m ticking the boxes. Cowboy - check. Politician - check. Lawyer - check. I’ve basically spent my career working my way through The Village People."Rob Lowe on selecting roles

"What is the most important lesson life has taught me?
 You are never first choice." Zoe Wanamaker

"I’m nothing but compost most of the time." Bill Murray

"French films don’t want me anymore. I don’t make films anymore, I make children." Alain Delon, some years ago – as he’s 80 Now ??

"What Audrey Hepburn had, you couldn’t teach, you couldn’t even learn it. God kissed her on the cheek and there she was." Billy Wilder

"IF I had stayed in Hollywood, I would have killed myself. Or someone would have done it for me." Piper Laurie

"IF it's a sonuvabitch, give it to Bogart." Director Vincent Sherman

"IF you think I made poor pictures after A Woman's Face, you should see the ones I went on suspension not to make!" Joan Crawford

"Wherever I look, I find parts that are reminiscent of Luke or Hud or Fast Eddie. Christ, I’ve played those parts once and parts of them more than once. It’s not only dangerous to repeat yourself, it’s godamned tiresome." Paul Newman

"I'm totally the opposite. I'm a gardener, I rescue dogs ..." Udo Keir

"I could do movies nonstop, even if there were no film, no result, just for the pleasure of being with the crew. It's like summer camp! I couldn't live without a crew. Well, I wish I could live with a soccer team…!" Beatrce Dalle

"I hate auditioning. I just can't do it. I get so nervous, like cripplingly nervous. I'm bad at them, and I feel awful afterward." Robert Pattinson

During his 1943 audition for The Story of GI Joe, Robert Mitchum was asked by director William Wellman: “What do you do for a living?” Bob replied “That, Dad, is a matter of opinion.”

This is the film that bred this site ... after Robert Redford told me he'd planned a little black-white version - with Robert De Niro, and Michael Moriarty as Woodstein.

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 - 7,333 actors - to click on... More than 40 years in the making!! And 2,263,601 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.


Elizabeth Counsell used the celebrated mink glove in her test for Patricia, Sean’s Thunderball masseuse.



How Hollywood ruined Marilyn Monroe's dream role in The Brothers Karamazov is on Marilyn's page - item #17


Why didn't Rip Torn make Easy Rider - see his blue section on his page.


For the fullest story of why Anthony Michael Hall did not make Stanley Kubrick's 'Nam classic, go to Hall's page. (The blue section).


Meryl v Italian producer Dino de Laurentiis. Read all about it - in her first item.


Horrendous news. Looks like the Woody Allen witch-hunters have won ... After making a film non-stop every year for 43 years, he has not been able to set up a new production since last year’s A Rainy Day in New York (totally shelved by Amazon). No one will now invest or act in his projects. Those that did so just trot out the same lie: “I knew nothing of the allegations.” Of course, they did! We all did. Since Mia Farrow alleged - as far back as … 1992! - that he abused their daughter, Dylan.
“Sadly,” he says, “I'm sure Dylan truly believes what she says.” At 82 his defence remains the same. “I never molested my daughter - as all investigations concluded a quarter of a century ago." Which is why Woody was allowed to adopt two children. But not to make more films. Something decidedly wrong there … Particularly when Mel Gibson and Bryan Singer have just signed hefty directing deals.
