Steve Forrest (1925-2013)

  1. Jeff Richards, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, 1953.   On  August 13, 1953, Hollywood Reporter said Forrest was cast - but Richards played the brother called Benjamin Pontipee.
  2. Steve Rowland, The Student Prince, 1954.      Change of Feuerwald… after the 1962 version collapsed due to Mario Lanza’s gigantic row with MGM. “No director tells me how to sing!” Eventually, Edmund Purdom went royal, miming to Lanza’s voice.
  3. Leslie Nielsen, Tammy and the Bachelor, 1956.     Change of bachelor.  Title was just Tammy at first. And in the hit parade where Debbie Reynolds’ title song ruled  for 23 weeks, five at #1.
  4. John Gavin, Back Street, 1960.   In the frame for Universal’s third version of Fannie Hurst’s soapy romance were Forrest, William Holden, Peter Lawford – and how-old-Cary-Grant was told he was too old. Hollywood gossip hen Hedda Hopper stupidly suggested Gavin.(Hadn’t the great know-all  heard that Hitchcock called him The Stiff the year before during Psycho?). Gavin was so good he never made another Hollywood film for six years despite being under contract to Universal.
