    Oooh, Gary Cooper would have been great in two Redford parts:
    in The Electric Horseman and The Horse Whisperer! Yeah, I could
    see him doing that.
    Warren Beatty: actor, director, writer, producer.

    Nah.. part of the appeal of old Hollywood is what that era represents.. some great filmmaking, innovative techniques, carving out new and wonderful cinematic niches (for those time periods) and making a historical mark on film.. I think I prefer experiencing their legacies through films from 40 50, 60 years ago. I think if they had stayed in their prime they might have become over-exposed and that's one of the things I hate about some movie stars today.

    sidney poitier and charlton heston in the fast and the furious would have been awesome.

    and i think lifetime movies deserve the silver screen legends treatment. can you imagine a remake of mother, may i sleep with danger? starring a young jean harlow in the role played by tori spelling in the original? my god that would be brilliant.

    Hollywood finds new actors to inherit the same space as the old icons. You have George Clooney as Cary Grant, Meryl Streep filling in for Bette Davis and the other silver screen goddesses, Harrison Ford as this generation's Gary Cooper, Tom Hanks as the modern equivalent to James Stewart, Daniel Craig's charisma has something of Steve McQueen. I'm having difficulty of thinking of more women... a Monroe, an Elizabeth Taylor or an Audrey Hepburn for our time. That doesn't really work...

    I want to see prime Bette Davis live on stage as Blanche in 'Streetcar' with prime Marlon Brando. *sigh* So many of my dreams and fantasies have yet to be fulfilled...

    Can you imagine Chaplin in 2.5 men or Valentino is When Harry met Sally? No, maybe Topgun for him as the romantic hero.... It's just not gonna work
