1. - Burt Reynolds, At Long Last Love, 1975. He did not want any of it to look real, so he would sing 'n' dance with his lover Cybill Shepherd. "But Christ," realised the ex-critic, "the critics would kill me." He later published a written public apology for the film
2. - Robert Carradine, The Big Red One, 1979. All the new movie brats wanted to back maverick auteur Samuel Fuller’s saga of his 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Division, in North Africa and Europe in WW11. The new company of Peter Bogdanovich, Francis Ford Coppola and William Friedkin nearly produced it in 1974 when Peter wanted to play Zab with Scorsese as the Italian-American Private Vinci.
