Actors Who Should Have Been Paired Together


Recommended Posts

*James Cagney and Ginger Rogers* in a musical together. I always enjoyed him best paired with a wisecracking dame like Joan Blondell and Ann Sheridan. I think he and Ginger would have made a cute couple in the right film in the early 30s.

CM, you're not gonna believe this, but Paulette and Susan Hayward star in a movie from 1942 called The Forest Rangers where they clash over none other than one Fred MacMurray!! I've never seen it but would love to as Paulette and Susan are two of my favorites. Fred sure was a lucky guy on that picture.

 

Bargar, loved your picks of Susan with Bogie, Robert and Rita, Ty and Olivia, Merle and Cary, and Paulette and Clark. Those would've been great pairings imo.

I just read in Maureen O'Hara's bio that she was all set to play opposite Gary Cooper in "Friendly Persuasion" until John Ford screwed it up for her. She was as mad as a hatter as she longed to make a movie with Cooper.

So I came up with John Wayne and Clint Eastwood.

 

How about Clark Cable and John Wayne. The King and The Duke. Wayne went up against casino owners such as Ernie Kovacs, but what if the gambling hall and the town was owned by Gable. The Duke as the new sherrif maybe ? Of course there is a woman involved. You guess who ends up with her. The Duke meets his match in The King. Gable steals the movie as the man who does more good than Waybe understands at first. By the end of the movie and after Gables enemys have just about ran Gable out of town with the help of John Wayne, The Duke starts seeing that Gables not the enemy, the tycoon bussineemen trying to run Gable out are, and unlike Gable, they do not have a heart of gold. The movie ends with the Duke teaming up with the King. Gable and Wayne win out. Justice prevails. Gable gets the woman. Duke gets the job done. At the end Wayne asks Gable if this town is big enough for both of them and Gable says if it isn't , he will make it big enough. They smile and thats The End.

As a kid, I used to imagine Johnny Weissmuller and Esther Williams in a movie together.

 

Thinking back on that, they may not have had the screen chemistry like William Powell and Myrna Loy. Or John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. But, who knows, they might have surprised everyone.
