laughingrat: Carole Lombard and William Powell exchange a glance in "My Man Godfrey" (Godfrey)

Every so often I'll hear someone say, "That movie would have been so much better if X was cast in it instead." I'll admit it, though: I'm terrible at envisioning that sort of thing (although I am pretty happy that George Raft turned down The Maltese Falcon), although it's always interesting to hear others' thoughts about it. Are there any classic films you think would have been better with a different cast?

I watched Billy Wilder's Love in the Afternoon last week. I'm a huge Wilder fan, but I think he sometimes had problems with his casting. I adored this film, I really did, but I couldn't fully get behind Gary Cooper as a romantic lead.

So this made me start thinking about other films I like with miscast roles (Like Bogie in Wilder's Sabrina).  Or films I don't like because of the miscasting (don't hate me, but Tippi Hedren in Marnie).



Thoughts? Any films/roles you think are miscast?
