Marlon Brando

There are 7,769 actors detailed on the CCC website. Some have missed a single film. Others, many more. Then, there are the champions. Like these … and look how Nicholson is closing in on Brando's top total … now that I found I'd had the same film twice in Marlon's page. (Exciting huh?!)

1. Brando - bypassed 158 movies 
2. Nicholson - 153 
3. Cary Grant -142 
4. Paul Newman - 138
5. Robert De Niro- 122

Highest Brit remains Sir Sean at 105.
Highest lady is Bette Davis, 85 items; Jodie Foster, 74; Liz Taylor, 68; Katharine Hepburn, Meryl Streep, 66;Julie Christie, Michelle Pfeiffer, 64.
Newer Brigade: Tom, 118; Brad, 96; Johnny, 91; Julia, 61; Nicole Kidman, 63; Leo, 60; Jim Carrey, Madonna, 56.

(You'll find the full list at Champions in the Main Menu)



Asked if she'd work with Woody Allen again (impossible as, sadly, no one is backing his art anymore), Frida Pinto said: "Absolutely not. I wouldn't work with him because I'm in solidarity with women who have come out with their stories, whether they are proven or not." Incredible!

"I don't know if I want to work for Disney." Dave Bautista. A real hero (so far)

"This is my first priest… I'm ticking the boxes. Cowboy - check. Politician - check. Lawyer - check. I've basically spent my career working my way through The Village People."Rob Lowe on roles

"I actually played Santa once. It was a voice for an animated film. I got fired. I don't think people bought me as Santa." John Malkovich

"What is the most important lesson life has taught me? You are never first choice." Zoe Wanamaker

"I'm nothing but compost most of the time." Bill Murray

"Breasts and bottoms look boringly alike." Lee Remick

"What Audrey Hepburn had, you couldn't teach, you couldn't even learn it. God kissed her on the cheek and there she was." Billy Wilder

"IF I had stayed in Hollywood, I would have killed myself. Or someone would have done it for me." Piper Laurie

"IF it's a sonuvabitch, give it to Bogart." Director Vincent Sherman

"IF you think I made poor pictures after A Woman's Face, you should see the ones I went on suspension not to make!" Joan Crawford

"Wherever I look, I find parts that are reminiscent of Luke or Hud or Fast Eddie. Christ, I've played those parts once and parts of them more than once. It's not only dangerous to repeat yourself, it's godamned tiresome." Paul Newman

"I'm totally the opposite. I'm a gardener, I rescue dogs ..." Udo Keir

This is the film that bred this site ... after Robert Redford told me he'd planned a little black-white version - with Robert De Niro, and Michael Moriarty as Woodstein.

WELCOME to a unique directory of what you never saw on-screen. The films the stars did not make. The movies that never were. The most definitive collation of casting stories ... Check up on all the films - of yesterday, today and tomorrow - that your favourite stars never made... A cast of thousands - 7,333 actors - to click on... More than 40 years in the making!! And 2,263,601 words of spirited text. The ultimate in movie trivia ... Better! Exactly the kind of history that Hollywood deserves. Back to front. Upside-down. Inside out. Full of flashbacks, close-ups, tracking shots (and, alas some badly edited sequences - sorry about that!) forming a fascinating, new and often bizarre flip-side perspective on your treasured movies and stars.


Ex-Bluebell Girl Gloria Paul, testing for Thunderball. Also losing the swimsuit of 1965: Julie Christie, Faye Dunaway, Raquel Welch and Maria Grazia Buccella ... who had also lost From Russia With Love. Who won Domino? I found out on May 17, 1965.

It was a Monday when I met the then newest Bond Girl in her suite at the Dorchester Hotel in London. Corinne Clery, Sophie Marceau, Eva Green, Léa Seydoux, they came later. The very first French Bond Girl was Claudine Auger - in Thunderball. She told me many things that afternoon ... "James Bond is sometimes very tough with his women. No matter. I like this sort of man ... I never wanted to be a beauty queen, winning Miss France was a surprise. My parents were very angry. I was only 16 ... My younger sister, Anne-Marie, is far more beautiful than me, she’s like a young Sophia Loren. Her favourite star is Sean Connery. Sean gave me a handsome photograph signed specially for her." And then Claudine got to her clothes. Or not ... "Oh, I must have 120 dresses at home, 50 swimsuits ... Funny, non, to have so much. You see, when I’m at home, I’m not wearing anything. I like to be nude in my house. It makes me feel so free. Non, I do not bother pulling the curtains. I’ve never seen anyone looking at me. Yet." I was. Looking at and drinking in her great looks and warm personality ... slowly ... like a good French wine. Chateau Claudine.
