Melina Mercouri (1923-1994)

  1. Ava Gardner,  55 Days At Peking, 1963.  Charlton Heston was against Ava for a Russian countess and suggested Deborah Kerr or the Greek star Mercouri - who agreed as long as the script was pumped up.  Somewhat. It wasn't. He later reported how Ava’s character was killed off because nobody could stand her unprofessionalism anymore. Drunk on-set, cursing director, Nichoals Ray
  2. Barbara Hershey, Shy People, 1987. "A long journey," summed up Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky.  He wrote it ten years before when shooting Siberiade in Siberia.  Once in America, the project took shape: "Mercouri as  a  woman  living on a very isolated Adriatic island,  the mother of a  family of  fishermen. Liv Ullman as the woman from  the city."  He re-set it in Louisiana bayou country. Barbara won Best Actress at Cannes - first of two consecutive wins at the French festival.
