SOME WHO MADE IT

AN­TO­NIO BAN­DERAS

This tal­ented ac­tor still pays his dues with cheesy Latin lover roles, but also gets the chance to stretch his act­ing mus­cles and show his comic strength.

IN­GRID BERGMAN

Her English was per­fect, her act­ing charm­ing and her face leg­endary. If she couldn’t make it in Tin­sel­town, no­body could.

ARMIN MUELLER STAHL

Of­ten known as “that Ger­man guy”, Stahl made a late im­pres­sion on Amer­i­can au­di­ences in Mu­sic Box and Shine. Since then he has played a variety of twinkly-eyed vil­lains and sec­ond World War sur­vivors.

AND SOME WHO DIDN'T

GÉRARD DEPAR­DIEU

A per­fect ex­am­ple of Amer­ica not un­der­stand­ing a for­eign ac­tor’s ap­peal. This Gal­lic god’s best

English- lan­guage role was op­po­site Andie MacDow­ell.

VA­LERIE GOLINA

This gor­geous Ital­ian ac­tress made a splash in Rain Man, then had to make do with the likes of Hot Shots be­fore re­turn­ing home.

ROBERTO BENIGNI

What do you do with a funny, idio­syn­cratic Os­car win­ner who-a-talks-a funny? Noth­ing,

ap­par­ently.

Gérard, An­to­nio and In­grid (with Bo­gey)
