Italian Lisi came to Hollywood in 1964 to make How to Murder Your Wife, the first of six American films she would make. But tired of always being cast as a seductress, she didn’t stay. Contemporary audiences may know her best for her extraordinary performance as Catherine de Medici in La Reine Margot I Queen Margot in 1994.

Warren Beatty, 1962

“Warren—it was obvious the first time I saw him—wanted it all and wanted it his way. Why not? He had the energy, a very keen intelligence, and more chutzpah than any Jew I’ve ever known. Even more than me. Bright as they come, intrepid, and with that thing all women secretly respect: complete confidence in his sexual powers, confidence so great that he never had to advertise himself, even by hints.”  – Elia Kazan, who directed Beatty in Splendor in the Grass

Janet Leigh, 1960, on the set of Psycho

[Leigh describing watching the Psycho shower scene for the first time]: “When I saw it, and I saw it cut together, and I saw the boom, boom, and the music and everything, I absolutely went… I just was crazy. I really screamed. I never take a shower. I cannot take a shower. ‘Cause it never dawned on me until that moment how vulnerable and defenseless one is. It never entered my head until I saw that.”
