Julianne Hough Down A River Of No Return

I am a big fan of classic movies. I love the old black and white classics. They had glamour, great characters and actual plots, something most of today's movies seriously lack. They didn't rely on special effects. The characters moved the plot forward. They created suspense, fear, laughter and excitement all without a single computer generated image. In a lot ways movie making has gone in the wrong direction.

That being said, I love to cast my favorite stars in what I believe would be some great remakes. A little updating to modern times and they could be really great movies for a whole new generation that would never watch an old black and white movie.

My star of the day is Julianne Hough. I love Julianne. I watched her on Dancing with the Stars and I loved her sweet personality. She just has a light about her that is beautiful. I like the fact that she appeals to young girls as a positive role model. She has a loving relationship with her family and seems to be grounded. I know many people dismiss her because she started her career on a reality show but I don't hold that against her. I think she is lovely and talented so she is my star to cast in this article.

1. All About Eve. The story revolves around Margo Channing, played by Bette Davis in the original, an aging Broadway star. She meets a young fan, Eve Harrington, played by Anne Baxter, a starry eyed fan. Eve manages to work her way into the actress' life and she is soon serving as her assistant.

On the surface Eve is sweet and helpful, but all the while she is plotting to surplant Channing. She schemes to become her understudy and succeeds. She then makes sure Channing misses a performance and she goes on in her place. She is brilliant and a star is born.

The complicated relationships in this film make for wonderful drama. Channing tries to convince her friends Eve is plotting against her but they all think she is being jealous and paranoid.

I would cast Julianne as Eve, the starry eyed, beautiful, sweet girl who in reality is an ambitious and ruthless manipulator. It would be a perfect fit for Hough and I think she could pull it off.

2. Shadow of a Doubt. This is an Alfred Hitchcock movie that doesn't have the notoreity as other Hitchcock movies but it is a good little thriller. It revolves around Charlie a young girl who lives with her family in a small town. She is thrilled when her namesake uncle comes for a visit.

Charlie idolizes her uncle Charlie but she soon learns he is suspected of being a serial killer dubbed the Merry Widow Murderer. She doesn't believe it at first but she begins to notice suspicious behavior on her uncle's part.

Charlie then sets off on a dangerous journey to discover the truth about her uncle. It is a tense story with typical Hitchcock mood.

Joseph Cotten played the uncle in the original. I think another of my favorite actors, Timothy Olyphant would be great in his part. I would cast Hough as Charlie. She would be good at the innocent idolation of her uncle, which tragically is shattered by the realization that she doesn't know him at all.

3. Holiday Affair. This one is a romantic comedy that starred Janet Leigh and Robert Mitchum. Leigh played a widow with a young son. Her husband was killed in the war. She struggles as a single mother, but she is engaged to a lawyer.

She works as a comparative shopper for a department store. When she buys a train set she meets Mitchum's character, Steve, who works as a clerk in a rival store. When she returns the train the next day, Steve knows what she is doing and threatens to report her to store security. After hearing she is a war widow he refunds her money. He loses his job for refunding her money.

Steve meets her son and a romantic relationship begins to develop. That leaves her with a decision. Will she choose security with the lawyer or go with her heart and choose the unemployed dreamer?

Playing a mother would be a first for Hough. I think she would be great as the grieving single mother. She did a great job in Safe Haven so this would be a natural fit for her.

4. River of No Return. This movie starred Robert Mitchum and Marilyn Monroe. Julianne is a physically active girl so I think she would be up to the action scenes in the movie. The movie takes place in the Northwestern United States in 1875. The story follows Matt Calder, a widower who has went to prison for killing a man to defend another man. He has returned to claim his ten year old son who has been left in the care of Kay, a dance hall singer.

On their way back to their farm Matt and his son have to rescue Kay and her gambler fiance from the rapids. Kay's fiancee Harry steals Matt's horse and rifle. He leaves Kay with the now stranded Matt and his son. When Indians threaten to attack the farm, the three are forced to escape down the river on Harry's raft. A harrowing journey ensues which bring all three close together.

I would cast Hough in the Marilyn Monroe part as Kay. She would be terrific as the dance hall girl with a heart of gold. I am going to throw my old favorite Timothy Olyphant in here as Matt.

5. Swing Time. Since I am casting Julianne Hough, I have to put in a Ginger Rogers movie. Hough could easily play Rogers. They even resemble each other somewhat. I love to watch Julianne dance so I am making it a dance movie.

Fred Astaire played Lucky, a dancing gambler. Lucky is all set to get married but when he is late to the ceremony the bride's father calls of the wedding. He then tells Lucky he must come up with $25000.00 to show his good intentions.

He meets dance instructor Penny "Ginger Rogers" on a train. He borrows change for a quarter from her. This leads to him following her to her dance studio where he takes a lesson from her. They are so good together they are asked to audition at a club.

After lots of misunderstandings, dancing and hijinks they end up dancing away together. Fred and Ginger always dance away together.

The perfect part for Hough. And what the heck I think Hugh Jackman could dance away with her. Be fun to see him try anyway.

Well those are my five Julianne Hough remake wishes. If you have a better one let me know in the comments!

Great article, Penny Cliff! But I must take exception to one of your statements: ' Hough could easily play Rogers'--not that Hough couldn't be cast as Rogers, only that it would be 'easy'. Documentaries record eye-witnesses saying things like, "She would sometimes dance until her feet bled'. My favorite quote about her is "She did everything Fred Astaire did, but in high-heels and backwards." However, beyond that one word, I thoroughly enjoyed your 'dream team' casting.

Thanks. I didn't mean to imply that playing Rogers would be easy, just that Hough would be a great fit for the part. She is a great dancer and a good actress so I think she is up to it. She has been dancing since childhood and has often spoke about dancing through pain. She performed a number on Dancing with The Stars and then collapsed backstage from pain. She had surgery the next day. So I think Ginger and Julianne could be sisters in dance.
