I imagine it's been discussed here before but does anyone remember an interview where she might have discussed Bye Bye Birdie? The film role of Rosie would have been a perfect fit and, of course, she'd only won her Oscar a year or two before the film was made. Probably and sadly, even with the Oscar win she still wouldn't have been considered a big enough name for a lead in the film (I think Janet Leigh even gets top billing over relative new comers Dick Van Dyke and Ann-Margret) but I do wonder what she thought of it all.
