Keith Michel

  1. Jeffrey Hunter, King of Kings, 1961.   For  his Jesus, feisty director Nicholas Ray (Rebel Without a Cause) worked his way through the Australian Michel, Welsh Richard Burton, English Peter Cushing, Canadian Christopher Plummer and even Swedish  Max Von Sydow (George Stevens’ Christ in 1964) before voting for the all-American Hunter. Despite being, at 35, closer to Christ’s age than per usual in Schmollywood epics, Jeff was soon dubbed “I Was a Teenage Jesus.”
  2. Christopher Plummer, The Sound of Music, 1964.      Driven to drink by it all, Plummer hated everything. The film - he called it S&M or The Sound of Mucus. The co-star - working with Julie Andrews (or Ms Disney as he called her) - was lakin to “being hit over the head with a big Valentine's Day card, every day.” So maybe Richard Burton, Yul Brynner, Sean Connery, Bing Crosby, Peter Finch, Walter Matthau and Maximilian Schell were lucky to lose Captain VonTrapp. The Australian Michel was first reserve if Plummer proved (as he soon wished) unavailable. Despite despite all his bad jibes, Plummer and Andrews became good friends.
