REMEMBER THE NIGHT

Yes, another great example.

Loved the lawyer's hypnosis theory. Hysterical.

BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID

Actually, sInce The West wasn't always "in America," quite a lot of westerns portray Americans who escaped to the West to run from their past, etc

Yes, good examples. Some of them like Sothern had gone into television and it was not easy for them to transition back into films.

Angela Lansbury-- not counting a couple voices in animated films, she has a big gap between THE COMPANY OF WOLVES (1984) and NANNY MCPHEE (2005)

 

Some blackisted actors had big gaps thanks to HUAC:

Lew Ayres: DONOVAN'S BRAIN (1953) - ADVISE & CONSENT (1962)

Howard Da Silva: FOURTEEN HOURS (1951) - DAVID AND LISA (1962)

Ann Revere: A PLACE IN THE SUN (1951) - MACHO CALLAHAN (1970)

Marsha Hunt THE was blacklisted, but the biggest gaps I saw were later: PLUNDERERS (1960) - JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN (1971) then another gap til CHLOE'S PRAYER (2006)

...and many others, I'm sure, but that's all I could think of

Good of you to mention blacklisting. The blacklist, television and ageism are probably the biggest factors in why some of these people had gaps between movies (the ones who didn't retire).
