Pre-Hysterical Hare (1958) w/ Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fuddstone

That's a clever pun and would have been a great example for yesterday's category!

Heck, TB, the real challenge would be finding the few Looney Tunes and/or Merrie Melodies titles that don't fit yesterday's theme! 🙂

And one can not make reference to One Million B.C. (1940) without acknowledging its remake, One Million Years B.C. (1966). And why must the remake be acknowledged? Two words: Raquel Welch.

Aren't all western movies also adventure movies? Clarification for those of us who are dumb (aka me) :)

I guess that's true to some extent. But I meant films where it seems like an action film dressed up as a western, if that makes sense...

BLUE SKIES -- also a failure, but it's his own fault in this case

Original director was unable to finish the film

Screen Shot 2021-02-17 at 12.30.42 PM

THE AMAZING MRS. HOLLIDAY (1943)..Universal fired Jean Renoir after 47 days of shooting, because he was many weeks behind schedule, and the studio felt he was too slow. Producer Bruce Manning took over and directed the rest of the movie.

Screen Shot 2021-02-23 at 2.06.22 PM

GENTLE ANNIE (1944)..It had been started in 1942, but director W.S. Van Dyke was too ill to continue. Then the leading man (Robert Taylor) went into the military, so it was scrapped and reshot two years later. The second time they used a different lead actor because Taylor was still in the military. And a different director because Van Dyke had died.

Another one--

MISTER ROBERTS (1955)..Mervyn LeRoy was assigned to direct after John Ford was booted off the picture at Henry Fonda’s insistence. I guess Ford was drinking too much and had a big fight with Fonda. Ford & Fonda never worked together again.

A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE -- started by Stanley Kubrick, finished by Spielberg after he died

Here are some movies where the director got fired in the middle:

GONE WITH THE WIND

WIZARD OF OZ

WEST SIDE STORY (Jerome Robbins got fired in the middle, which is why the "Dance at the Gym" number is way less cinematic than the other numbers)

PRINCE OF EGYPT

History repeats itself:  Ernst Lubitsch became ill while filming A Royal Scandal (1945) and asked Otto Preminger to finish the job.  Years pass, and Lubitsch died suddenly while shooting  That Lady in Ermine (1948) , and once again, Preminger took over the director's chair.  As a 'memorial' of sorts to Lubitsch, Preminger insisted his own name be kept off the credits, even though he shot most of the movie.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   The Man Who Charmed America With Sophisticated Comedies | Best Movies by  Farr
