Susan Kohner

  1. Elana Eden, The Story of Ruth, 1959.   Director Henry Koster and producer Samuel  G Engel saw (allegedly) about 300 actressess for the Biblical Ruth,  testing just 29… including Kohner, Diane Baker, Myrna Fahey, Ulla Jacobsson (Ingmar Bergman’s Swedish discovery), Tina Louise,and Millie Perkins. Koster actually wanted Susan Strasberg. But Engel bowed to studio pressure about the Israeli Eden (ex-Cooper), one of George Stevens’ final five possibles for The Diary of Anne Frank, 1958,  won by… Perkins.    
  2. Natalie Wood, West Side Story,  1961.  Very much  a Natalie clone. (Susan's two sons are the American Pie chefs, Chris and Paul Weitz).
