Jill Ireland (1936-1990)


  1. Jean Seberg, Saint Joan, 1957.     Although a trifle old at 21 for the 19-year-old Maid of Orleans, the tyrannical producer-director-ogre Otto Preminger was intrigued by the London starlet - seen by then in seven movies, from Powell and Pressburger‘s Oh… Rosalinda! to Hell Drivers (with her first husband, David McCallum).  Preminger also considered such unlikely Joans as Ursula Andress, Julie Andrews, Anne Bancroft, Claire Bloom, Carol Burnett, Joan Collins, Angie Dickinson, Sophia Loren, Shirley MacLaine, Mary Tyler Moore, Kim Novak (from Otto’s Man With The Golden Arm, 1955),Debbie Reynolds, Maggie Smith, Liz Taylor and…Mamie Van Doren!
  2. Tippi Hedren, The Birds, 1962.  England’s Ireland and Hollywood’s Sandra Dee and Suzanne Pleshette were in the frame for the poor, bird-pecked Melanie until Alfred Hitchcock fell for  Hedren in a diet drink commercial. Hitch gave her to a seven-year contract and a lot sexual; harassment. She made his next film, Marnie, 1963. And  that was the end of  his “new Grace Kelly.”
  3. Barbara Parkins, The Valley of the Dolls, 1967.
  4. Deborah Raffin, Death Wish III, 1985.   Charles Bronson's wife was too ill with ca ncer.  Deborah "always wanted to work with Charlie," stepped in but never saw the film.  "Too much violence."
