Liselotte Pulver

  1. Haya Harareet, Ben-Hur, 1959.  The fast-rising Swiss-born German star was quickly chased by Hollywood directors.  William Wyler saw her for   Esther...
  2. Sophia Loren, El Cid, Italy-UK-US, 1961. ...  and  Anthony Mann tested Lilo for  Doña Jimena., also opposite Charlton Heston.  Also in the mix: German teen Christine Kaufman (15; living with Tony Curtis at age 16), Jeanne Moreau, Moira Shearer. “The biggest disappointments of my career.”  She later went Hollywood in A Time To Love And A Time To Die, 1958,  Billy Wilder’s One, Two, Three, 1961, and A Global Affair, 1964 with... Bob Hope! After which, she never strayed again!
  3. Maggie Smith, The VIP’s, 1963.  Or… the Burtons ! Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor are re-enacting an episode in Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh’s tumultuous life.  All the other players were also-fans. Apart from Louis Jourdan as Taylor’s new lover,  and, indeed, Maggie Smith in the role  first offered to Lilo – private secretary to Rod Taylor’s tycoon Maggie all but stole one Burton scene. Not sure  Pulver could have managed that. 
  4. Claude Gensac, Le gendarme se marie (US: The Gendarme Gets Married), France-Italy, 1968. Now this is an insulting - to suggest Lilo should be the wife of the terrible stutter, splutter, mutter, nutter comic Louis De Funès, who ate scenery as if it were ratatouille.   Maybe Germany was trying to buy into the French Gendarmefarces.  Truth is they did not travel that well.
