Edmond O’Brien (1915-1985)

1. - Burt Lancaster, From Here To Eternity, 1953.

2. - Dean Martin, Rio Bravo, 1958.

3. - Noah Beery Jr, Guns of the Timberland, 1959. During the casting days, Alan Ladd - the star and the producer - mused over O’Brien, Van Heflin, Tony Martin and his daughter Alana Ladd. Alana, only, appeared in the film. (The second of her four films with Daddy).

4. - Maurice Evans, Planet of the Apes, 1968.

5. - John Saxon, Black Christmas (aka. Silent Night, Evil Night), 1975.  Not  only  co-eds  were slashed.  Budget cuts removed Bette Davis and then O'Brien's health - the start of  his Alzheimer's  disease - ruled him out. That protected the sheen of their old Oscars.
