    Hmmmm. She’s certainly not as maternal as BBG, but Hepburn could go all vulnerable when you least expected it. Her devotion to Tracy would also have been good training for dealing with Jock.......

    I think it's only fitting that Katherine be played by Vivien Leigh.

    I also want Yvonne De Carlo to play someone...but she's a little too old for this and a little too young for that

    @Laurie Marr I updated your cast for you by adding your additions so people could see it all in one place. I don't know who you replaced Natalie Wood with for Sue Ellen though. If Audrey Hepburn is your Pam, this is what your whole cast is now:

    Jock - John Wayne
    Miss Ellie - Katherine Hepburn
    JR. - Paul Newman
    Bobby - James Garner
    Sue Ellen -
    Pam - Audrey Hepburn
    Gary - Montgomery Clift
    Ray: Steve McQueen
    Donna Culver Krebbs: Eva Marie Saint
    Cliff - Jack Lemmon
    Lucy - Sandy Dennis
    Katherine Wentworth: Ava Gardner
    Donna Culver Krebbs: Eva Marie Saint
    Kristin Shepherd: Natalie Wood
    Patricia Shepherd: Agnes Moorhead

    Agreed. Actually I think Hepburn would be better as Rebecca Wentworth.

    If I wanted to really mix it up : I would put my fingers in my ears and nervously watch what happened if Rod Steiger was unleashed in the role of JR Ewing.

    That's very appropriate because the characters played by Rod Steiger and Marlon Brando in On The Waterfront were brothers. The best thing about this is it reminds of old movies I haven't watched yet, or want to see again.

    I was talking to a friend and told her about this thread since she likes classic movies and Dallas too. I said "I cast Brigitte Bardot just based on her looks; I don't even know if she can act." My friend said B.B. was beautiful but could not act. I replied: "Then she's a perfect Mandy."

    Actually the more I think about it Marlon Brando could be a great JR. Good choice.
