Paul Newman and Lee Remick in Der lange heiße Sommer (1958)

Her role in Anatomy of a Murder (1959) was intended for Lana Turner, who got fired when she insisted that her off-the-rack costumes, (suitable for the part of an Army wife), be designed by splashy Jean Louis. Later, Remick was announced to replace Marilyn Monroe in the unfinished Something's Got to Give (1962), but loyal co-star Dean Martin demanded that the studio reinstate the fired Monroe.

Lee Remick in Das Omen (1976)

In 1962, Lee, who was with 20th Century Fox, briefly replaced the excessively tardy Marilyn Monroe on the film Something's Got to Give (1962). Lee never got past a few wardrobe fittings. Dean Martin, the film's co-star, refused to work with anyone but Marilyn and threatened to quit. As a result, Marilyn was brought back. The project was eventually scrapped.

Lee Remick in Das Omen (1976)

A very weak, almost unrecognizable Lee made one of her last public appearances on April 29, 1991, to receive her star on the "Hollywood Walk of Fame." In the last stages of her kidney cancer, her face was extremely bloated by the chemo treatments she was receiving. Jack Lemmon, her Days of Wine and Roses (1962) co-star, was at the ceremony to lend love and support. She died two months later on July 2nd.

Lee's paternal grandfather was the son of Irish immigrants. Lee's other ancestry was English (where her maternal grandmother was born, and from where many of her other ancestors had immigrated to Massachusetts in the 1600s).

Alcoholic Montgomery Clift's career was in decline, when he was considered for Wild River (1960). Director Elia Kazan made him promise he wouldn't drink. The actor kept his word with the support of sympathetic co-stars Jo Van Fleet and Lee Remick.

Lee Remick and Paul Scofield in Empfindliches Gleichgewicht (1973)

Although she liked the European locations for Hard Contract (1969), she thought the film didn't work and was a disaster. However, she met first assistant director and future husband Kip Gowans on the film.

Katharine Hepburn befriended Remick after A Face in the Crowd (1957) and wanted her to be in Desk Set (1957), in which she would star with Spencer Tracy. Tracy thought that the part wasn't good enough for Remick and advised her not to play it. She didn't and the part went to Dina Merrill. Remick later co-starred with Hepburn in A Delicate Balance (1973).
