Alternate Cinematic History

Film history is littered with roads not taken. What if Ronald Reagan had starred in Casablanca? What if Nick Nolte had played Han Solo or Tom Sellek had played Indiana Jones? Well until today few people had a clue that there was such a "what if?" regarding the role of Hyman Roth in The Godfarther Part II.

Though the part eventually went to legendary acting teacher Lee Strasberg, maverick filmmaker Samuel Fuller was apparently screen-tested for the role. Lucky for us Cinema Nerds, his widow Christa posted that test on her Facebook for all the world to see. Enjoy!
