Rosemary's Baby Was Supposed To Have Joan Crawford Too! Iconic Actress Cut From Film!

Looks like Roman Polanski's classic was supposed to have a bit more star power!

Rutanya Alda, best known for Mommie Dearest, was Mia Farrow's stand-in for the flick.

When Mia was late, Polanski decided to shoot a scene with cameos from Joan Crawford and Van Johnson—without her!

Alda recalls Joan's very cordial but mistaken greeting:

Joan came over to me and said, 'Hello! I'm Joan Crawford!'

She thought I was Mia Farrow!

That's a great person to be mistaken for!

Alda also recounted Van's quip about Polanski's huge honker. The director was not too pleased.

Polanski then kicked everyone off the set! Afterwards, Mia finally arrived but the scene was cut.

We wonder how that scene would have looked in the film…

The world will never know..
