Lee Majors

  1. Roger Herren, Myra Breckinridge, 1969. The future Six Million Dollar Man refused Rusty – who was  anally raped by the the titular Raquel Welch with a strap-on!  But he introduced his lover, Farrah Fawcett, to UK director Michael Sarne. She beecame Mary Ann. It was her first film, not her happiest experience. Neither the top-starring Raquel Welch and Mae West treated her well.  "It was a terrible picture. But it taught me a lot about egos and star-trips. Everyone was on that!" The terrible movies ruined the careers of Sarne, Welch and Herren - who won but three screen roles, two uncredited, and Rusty, savaged by critics as well as Myra.
  2. Jon Voight, Midnight Cowboy, 1969.  Another X-rated "scandal" from another (rather better) UK director...  Majors was  John Schlesinger's ideal Joe Buck - with a definite shot at an Oscar - except he was trapped in  Barbara Stanwyck's Big Valleyad, TV, 1965-1969.  If he had the controversial double-X-whammy Myra and Cowboy, TV suits would never have chosen him for The Six Million Dollar hero. 
  3. Mac Davis, North Dallas Forty, 1979,  Lee refused for another project that never happened. Majors stayed minor as The  Six Million Dollar Man, TV, 1974-78.
