Ali MacGraw

  1. Joan Delaney, The President's Analyst, 1967.    In “a  general cattle call,” Ali recognised other models she had booked in her days as stylist for fashion photographer Melvin Sokolsky.
  2. Candice Bergen, The Adventurers, 1970.    She wed Paramount boss Robert Evans after her debut, Goodbye Columbus, which led to their Love Story. Hating Hollywood at first, she refused everything he offered including “the biggest picture we're making this year.”Biggest flop, thatwas. Writer Harold Robbins based the role upon the poor little rich girl, Woolworth heiressBarbara Hutton.The hero was based on one of her seven husbands, Porfirio Rubirosa. the Dominican diplomat-playboy with a famously massive penis. (Paris waiters named their giant pepper-grinders, Rubirosas, after it).
  3. Diane Keaton, The Godfather, 1971.
  4. Mia Farrow, The Great Gatsby, 1973.    “Is everybody crazy?” said producer David Merrick. "We [can] have Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen working for nothing. And we're ending up with Mia Farrow?" Producer Robert Evans had bought the rights as Ali’s wedding present, after he made her a star in Goodbye, Columbus. Their Love Story on and off-screen imploded when he let her make (a literal) Getaway with Steve McQueen in 1971. And so she lost the roles Evans was prepping for her.   Daisy Buchanan and…    
  5. Faye Dunaway, Chinatown, 1973. …Evelyn Mulwray. “She’s my daughter… She’s my sister… She’s my daughter. My sister, my daughter. She’s my sister and my daughter.”
  6. Kathleen Lloyd The Missouri Breaks, 1975,    The McQueens were  invited, but the marriage was already headed to a 1977 divorce. Bob Rafelson handed the project to Arthur Penn... who clearly  had no idea what to do with it.  Nor did Marlon Brando and Nicholson.
  7. Jill  Clayburgh, Gable and Lombard,  1976.     Somehow  the old stars were seen as the McQueens -  again.  They had already been offered to Steve  and  his first wife, Neile Adams, in 1965.
  8. Julie Christie, Heaven Can Wait,  1977.    OK, their marriage was headed to a 1977 divorce, but when Warren Beatty’s  offer came up,  McQueen wouldn’t let Ali in touching distance  of such a lothario.
  9. Lesley Anne Down The Betsy, 1978.     The McQueens had  choice of roles - in almost anything!
  10. Bibi Andersson, An Enemy of the People, 1978.    Then, the double McMarriage  broke up...  before the film did likewise
  11. Isabelle Huppert, Heaven's Gate, 1980.    The McQueens were no more, and  Steve, himself,  was dead, when the 1973 offer of The Johnson County War turned into Ciminogate: Heaven's Gate.
