Dreams Almost Squashed

Clark Gable
Failed his first screen test at Warner Brothers because Darryl F. Zanuck thought his ears were too large.

Clint Eastwood
In his early days he was told his speech was too soft, he was too tall, he squinted too much, and his teeth needed capping. "That's all still true today," he says, "but the attitude is a little different now."

Cary Grant
A casting director once informed him that he was bowlegged and that his neck was too thick.

Fred Astaire
The report on an early audition read, "Can't sing, can't act. Dances a little."
