That is an interesting one. For all of them to turn it down and then have to sit there and watch Sally get so much acclaim must have been odd. Diane Keaton turned it down too. Odd. I wonder why none of them saw the value of the role.

Last week I saw The Goodbye Girl. I read the trivia and I found out Robert De Niro was supposed to starred but was fired and refused to explain the reason why. And also Dustin Hoffman was also interested since it was based on his life as an actor but the role eventually goes to Richard Dreyfuss.April 17, 2020 at 12:26 pm #1203432515
