Howard Hawks in a publicity still with his latest discoveries in Red Line 7000 (1965).  Only James Caan became a movie star.  Charlene Holt and Norman Alden, bottom left and right, were able to pump out undistinguished careers.  Norman notably drowned in a bowl of chicken soup on  Norman Lear’s syndicated soap opera Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

Marianna Hill and James Caan in Red Line 7000 (1965).  James went on to co-star in Howard Hawks’ next film, the superior El Dorado (1966).  Marianna didn’t make much of an impression with her big break for Howard Hawks, but she was able to squeeze out a career that began in 1960 and ran through something called  Chief Zabu in 2016 and a total of 84 acting credits.
