Neile Adams

  1. Rita Moreno, West Side Story, 1960.   The Kismet and   Pajama Games tage dancer had also refused the Broadway show. “I had something better - the most exciting man I know.”  Steve McQueen. They were wed and had two children during 1956-1972.  Also up for the firestorm called Anita were Debra Paget’s sister, Lisa Gaye and  BarBara Luna.. who looked too much like Natalie Wood’s Maria. Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins (they won the first co-directing Oscars) needed a name (and not a sister’s, sorry about that, Lisa) and so Moreno won a support Oscar – and the role of Valentina (a female version of 1960’s Doc) in Steven Spielberg’s superb 2019 re-make.

  2. Anjanette Comer, The Appaloosa, 1966.  Mrs Steve McQueen didn't want Brando! She refused him in order to accompany Steve to the excessive Taiwan  location  of  The Sand  Pebbles -  made  by Robert Wise, director of her 1957 debut, This Could Be The Night.
  3. Jill Clayburgh, Gable and Lombard, 1976. Unlikiest 1965 choices: Steve McQueen and wife. “Neile's no Lombard and I'm no Gable.” And he said much the same when he and his next wife, Ali MacGraw, had the same offer in 1975.
