Is this the starriest cast ever?


I'm not going to list everyone, but there's at least ten A-list movie stars, not to mention tons of recognisable character actors and TV show stars in the supporting cast.

Can anyone think of a starrier film?

The Great Escape had a lot, but The Longest Day did too.

There may be some equally all-star casts, but what makes this movie somewhat unique is that many of these guys were at the very peak of their stardom at the time of release (O'Neal, Caan, Gould, and especially Caine, Connery, Redford, and Hackman). Most movies of this sort fill out the cast with stars a bit past their prime. There were very few venerable old-timers aside from Olivier and Bogarde.

If they had known back then who the centurion was they would have named it "Cavalry Hill" instead of "Calvary Hill".
