Here are three more actresses who were under contract to 20th Century Fox. All came to our attention in the mid-late 50s but were still around in the 60s and later. One thing that makes this trio a bit more bonded than some others we've written about is they were the stars of 1959s The Best of Everything.

It may be that his name is not as familiar to the general public as some of his more heralded contemporaries. But I think I can assure you that you have heard of many of his films, some of which could even be among your favorites. Much of his work holds up quite well. He was fond of the anti-hero and often placed him in a tug-of-war with his principles.

When I first came across Jacqueline Bisset in the 1960s, I found her to be one of the most beautiful actresses I had ever seen. Adding to the lustre was that she seemed so unaffected by her beauty which made her all the more alluring to me. If that wasn't enough, her voice, so clear and direct, often seemed like it wanted to start speaking French mid-sentence. Then she really had me. It's a love affair that continues to this day.

Of course we've all had coworkers we didn't get on with, maybe didn't speak to or had a battle royal. Movie stars can have the same problems and some of those times it hits the press. And often when their feuds make the news, it's called creative differences. Other times one or more of the parties deliberately alerts the press. Some are just plain difficult to get on with and a few to follow have actually been in more feuds than the one I am listing. Be sure to duck.
