When one thinks of old timey private detectives, one doesn't have to stray too far from imagining the likeness of Humphrey Bogart. He is the face most remembered to represent Dashiell Hammett's hard boiled hero Sam Spade. It's worth noting that the film's version of Spade is considerably different in looks and demeanor than in the novel, and yet Bogart grabs the role so effortlessly and radiates such an overwhelming cool that he not only controls the image of Sam Spade, he also becomes the prototype of every hard boiled private dick, as well as any film noir protagonist, ever since.
As far as the John Huston-Humphrey Bogart combos go (there were six of them), The Maltese Falcon is unbeatable, but that's taking my unapologetic love for unadulterated film noir into account. The titular "Maltese Falcon" is a priceless statue made of gold and encrusted with jewels, »

While sitting and thinking about the upcoming remake/sequel to Alice In Wonderland (trust me, it’s not something I do all that often), I couldn’t help but stumble upon one, key element about the film. It’s Tim Burton. It features Crispin Glover. One has never directed the other before, and this is a surprising notion to come across. Granted, Glover provided a voice in 9 last year, and Tim Burton was a producer on that film. Before that, though, there has never been a collaboration between these two giants of weird.
This got me thinking. What other obvious collaborations are there that, for whatever reasons the cinema Gods felt necessary, never came to fruition. What directors have such an identifiable style that coalesces with the style of an actor or actress that have just never merged together on any, one project?
