Jo Van Fleet


  1. Mercedes McCambridge, Giant, 1955.
  2. Viveca Lindfors, Sylvia, 1964.   Many changes before the off.  George Peppard and Paul Newman passed the shamus investigating the titular Carroll Baker (in her post-Carpetbaggers trying-to-be-a-sexpot period) to George Maharis.   Director David Miller was replaced by veteran workhorse Gordon Douglas, and he replaced Van Fleet (James Dean’s mother in in East of  Eden) with the Swedish Lindfors.  Result: zero movie.
