 Who was considered for The Unsinkable Molly Brown?

Robert Goulet
MGM executives sought the Broadway star to play opposite Shirley MacLaine in the movie version of Meredith Wilson's stage musical.
Actor who got the part: Harve Presnell

Shirley MacLaine
According to a friend of director Chuck Walters: "His first choice for the lead role was Shirley MacLaine, but Debbie campaigned to unseat her. She and Chuck were buddies, so she played that card big time! Debbie even called Shirley directly to talk her out of accepting the role. Shirley had tons of other offers, so she graciously stepped aside. That made it possible for Debbie to play the role and garner her only nomination as Best Actress."
Actor who got the part: Debbie Reynolds
