Tests Costumes pour "Let's Make Love"

Tests Costumes


C'est l'acteur Gregory Peck qui est d'abord envisagé pour tenir le premier rôle masculin. On peut lire sur le panneau des screen tests des essayages costumes qu'il passe le 10 novembre 1959, que son personnage s'appelait Mark Bruester. Après que le scénario ait été remanié par Arthur Miller, Gregory Peck décide de se retirer du film jugeant que le rôle masculin était bien trop faible par rapport au rôle féminin.
That's the actor Gregory Peck who is first considered to lead the male role. We can read on the screen tests panel of the costume fittings he spent on November 10, 1959, that his character was called Mark Bruester. After the screenplay was reworked by Arthur Miller, Gregory Peck decides to withdraw from the film judging that the male role was far too weak compared to the female role.
