  1. 1959 Sabine Bethmann was invited to Hollywood to play the female lead in "Spartacus" with Kirk Douglas. As it was 3 weeks in production, Douglas - who also was the Producer - had Problems with Director Anthony Mann and hired Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick did replace Sabine Bethmann and offered the part to Jean Simmons.
    For Sabine Bethmann it was a shock, becaus she had rejected many interesting offers in Germany for the role in "Spartacus".
