Disowned by star or director

Mary Pickford carefully preserved her film catalogue, except for ROSITA (1923).

Ingrid Bergman wouldn’t discuss CASABLANCA (1942) in interviews later in life.

Lucille Ball called the I Love Lucy Christmas episode a real clunker.

Judy Holliday was unhappy with the screen adaptation of Bells Are Ringing

Good for Lucille Ball (now if she could have disowned her screen version of Auntie Mame)

Christopher Plummer made a statement years ago (aside from not wanting to be remembered for The Sound of Music) about taking jobs because your castle needs central heating, etc.

I think one of the most famous examples is Jerry Lewis's The Day the Clown Died, which he starred in, directed, and co-wrote.  He had it locked in a vault, and later gave it to the Library of Congress, stipulating that it would wait years after his death to show it  Film Review: The Day the Clown Cried (1972) | HNN

Doris Day didn't like the films her ex-hubby/manager signed her to do...without her okay...including Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?    I finally saw this, and...she was right...good cast wasted on series of lame 'mistaken identity' nonsense. which mainly happens in one house outside the historic NYC blackout (that could've been funny...)  Where Were You When the Lights Went Out? (1968)

She also didn't like the episode with Orson Welles...but that might have been because Orson had moved into her and Desi's guest house and wouldn't leave. LOL This is detailed in Lee Tannen's excellent book "I Loved Lucy." (Lee was a cousin of Ball's second husband Gary Morton and spent a lot of time with the couple.)

He also talks about MAME being a vanity project that Ball was very proud of, despite the fact that it was blasted by critics.
