Bogart deviated from his normal tough-guy roles to play a mad criminologist who becomes addicted to crime. He did not repeat the mistake.
John Wayne - The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965)
Who can forget one of Hollywood's greatest moments? John Wayne as a centurion looks up at the Cross and drawls in broadest Texan: 'Truly this man was the son of God'.
Natalie Wood - Gypsy (1962)
Horribly miscast as stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, a far cry from her famous part as Maria in West Side Story. One critic said she resembled a "plastic wind-up doll strutting the runway".

Van Dyke's pitiful attempt at a Cockney accent still reduces
audiences to hysterical laughter more than 30 years after the release of this children's classic.
