Greta Scacchi

  1. Robin Wright (Penn), The Princess Bride, 1986.     Director Rob Reiner thumbed through a veritable little black book of Hollywood’s new young hotties! Suzy Amis, Valerie Bertinelli, Yasmine Bleeth, Phoebe Cates, Courteney Cox, Kim Delaney, Rebecca de Mornay, Cathryn de Prume, Sherilyn Fenn, Jennifer Grey, Anne Heche, Marg Helgenberger, Lauren Holly, Patsy Kensit, Juliette Lewis, Carey Lowell, Kelly Lynch, Virginia Madsen, Mary Stuart Masterson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Alexandra Paul, Amanda Pays, Meg Ryan, Mia Sara, Annabella Sciorra, Kyra Sedgwick, Tori Spelling, Catherine Mary Stewart, Brenda Strong, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Uma Thurman, Meg Tilly, Charlene Tilton, Nancy Travis, Amy Yasbeck, Sean Young.
  2. Jane Seymour, The French Revolution, France, 1989.     Hollywood called away Indian producer Ismail Merchant's “mixture of Grace Kelly and Ingrid Bergman,”so their Marie-Antoinette became the TV mini-series queen who needed a good film. This (pair) was not it.
  3. Sharon Stone, Basic Instinct, 1991.     Even the boys have to do it.”
  4. Annabella Sciorra, Sessions, 1992.    A pregnant shrink just wouldn’t work - particularly in the opening sex-dream scene. Sexy Scacchi’s later roles included, Lady Macbeth andMargaret Thatcher (same woman, no?)  Working with all her passports in UK, Australian, Italian, Germany and, of course Hollywood films - nearly all her work landed up competing in the Cannes festival.  
  5. Amira Casar, Call Me By Your Name, 2016.    A year earlier, producer-director James Ivory announced his adaptation of André Aciman’s novel would  star Shia LaBelouf and Greta Scacchi as the mother of his teenage boy lover. Finally, Ivory produced with Sicilian Luca Guadagnino directing Hammer and Amira Casar as Timothée Chalamet’s mother. Result: a record ten-miniute ovation at the New York festival (for Guadagnino and 2017’s finest acting ensemble) plus rapturous reviews. The  New York Times critic Manohla Darghius, called it a ravishment of the senses.  Ivory (who directed Scacchi in Heat and Dust,1982, and Jefferson in Paris, 1994) became the oldest (competitive) Oscar-winner (for his co-adapted script) in 2018 - at age 89, a year older than previous champ, composer Ennio Morricone.  Ivory was still annoyed about no full-frontal of the lads in the film.
