Susan Anspach

  1. Karen Black, Five Easy Pieces, 1970. She read for Jack Nicholson’s lover, and asked yo be his brother’s fiancée, Catherine Van Oost. “Jack wanted Lauren Hutton. [Scenarist] Carole Eastman wanted Jeanne Moreau. Bob Rafelson wanted me. So I got it.” Plus a son, Caleb, from her affair with Nicholson.
  2. Maggie McOmie, THX 1138, 1971.    “First film I was ever offered.”  George Lucas' feature debut, based on his USC short. “But I didn't want to shave my head.”
  3. Ronnee Blakely, Nashville, l975.    Two stories. Director Robert Altman: “As the picture developed we coudn't afford her.  She wouldn't drop her price,  so we lost her.” Anspach: “I had a nervous breakdown” - unhappy with Altman's low-salary ensemble  casting.  Ronee had never acted before - “she was as good as anyone in the film,” said Altman. She had  already written some of Barbara Jean's songs.
