Gordon MacRae (1921-1986)

  1. Jim Davis, Winter Meeting, 1947.   Bretaigne Windust, an unknown French director (better on stage) had  been OKed for the weepie by its star, Bette Davis. He  turned  down four potential partnera for her.  Two tough guys: Burt Lancaster and Richard Widmark. And two musical stars: singer  Gordon MacRae and dancer  Gene Nelson.  And so, war hero Lieutenant Slick Novack became Jim Davis, the future Jock Ewing in Dallas, 1978-1981; billed back in  the day as James.  as James.  Result: Bette’s biggest flop. She still kept the faith with Windust  for her next outing, June Bride. A rare comedy for her.
  2. James Dean, Giant, 1955.
