Some acting careers are made by one great role and some fall into obscurity when one is declined. Would Al Pacino be the star he is today if Robert Redford had accepted the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather? Imagine Tom Hanks rejecting Uma Thurman, saying that she acted like someone in a high school play when she auditioned to play opposite him in The Bonfire of the Vanities. Picture Danny Thomas as The Godfather, or Marilyn Monroe as Cleopatra. This reference work lists hundreds of such stories: actors who didn’t get cast or who turned down certain parts. Each entry, organized alphabetically by film title, gives the character and actor cast, a list of other actors considered for that role, and the details of the casting decision. Information is drawn from extensive research and interviews. From About Last Night (which John Belushi turned down at his brother’s urging) to Zulu (in which Michael Caine was not cast because he didn’t look “Cockney” enough), this book lets you imagine how different your favorite films could have been.

Drei Filme, drei Geschichten – eine Filmgeschichte. Diese Geschichte des Films ist vollkommen anders. Statt chronologisch Hunderte von Produktionen abzuhandeln, zeigt Michaela Krützen die sich verändernden Grundprinzipien des filmischen Erzählens anhand von nur drei Titeln auf: »Casablanca«, »L’Année dernière à Marienbad« und »Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind«. Anschaulich arbeitet sie an konkreten Szenen die Besonderheiten von drei grundlegenden Epochen heraus: Klassik, Moderne und Nachmoderne. Grundlage des Vergleichs ist ein Katalog von 16 Merkmalen, die diese Erzählweisen kennzeichnen. So entsteht eine neue Filmgeschichte – kompakt, verständlich und originell.

Anne Bancroft (1931–2005) was an American film, television and stage actress, stage producer and film director. Respected for her acting prowess and versatility, she won the “Triple Crown”—an Oscar, a Tony and an Emmy. Her stage portrayal of Annie Sullivan in The Miracle Worker won the Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in 1959. She reprised the role for the 1962 film of the same name, winning the Oscar for Best Actress, but was perhaps best known as Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate (1967). Her extensive television work included numerous roles in movies and series, including Deep in My Heart (1999), for which she won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress. A filmography/videography and information about DVD availability are included.

The luminous star of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Shane, and other classic films was, as the subtitle aptly puts it, "the actress nobody knew." Jean Arthur (1900-91) kept her personal life private, disdained the Hollywood publicity machine, and was called "difficult" because of her perfectionism and remoteness from costars on the movie set. John Oller, a lawyer, tracked down kinsfolk and friends never before interviewed to capture the elusive personality of a free spirit best embodied in her favorite role, Peter Pan. Arthur herself might have appreciated his warm, respectful portrait. "...[An] insightful, painstakingly researched analysis of Arthur's life and career raises the curtain on the complex, conflicted person behind the screen persona...Captures the special shine of a unique star who turned out to be a genuine eccentric." -Chicago Tribune
