Depp and Burton, DeNiro and Scorsese: Modern Cinema’s Most Prolific Actor/Director Pairs

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, featuring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, opens this weekend, and it marks for us another chapter in an extremely fruitful collaboration between two remarkable kindred spirits " Burton the brooding artist and Depp the movie star desperate to stay true to his inner freakishness. It got us thinking about other iconic collaborations between noted directors and favorite actors, collaborations that enhance both the filmmaker and the performer, and which stand as bodies of work in and of themselves. (We also added a couple of repeated pairings that, for all their frequency, will leave the opposite of a legacy.) Needless to say, there were a lot to choose from, so we’ve restricted ourselves to collaborators who’ve worked together in the last 25 years (sorry, Hitchcock and Stewart!) and English-language movies (sorry, Toshiro, Akira, Marcello, Federico, et al). We know we’ve missed a few, so please post your choices below.

@ossobuco,
They didn't define the term so let's just say post 1960's cinema.

@ossobuco,
I was think of Truffaut and Jeanne Moreau (I'll avoid mentioning Jean Pierre Leaud, who always disconcerted me) but I don't remember the exact years.

Rainer Werner Fassbinder/Hannah Schygulla (Fassbinder died at 37)
Their "Marriage of Maria Braun" (WWII movie) won even the Golden Globe award in 1980.

Is it wrong of me to think that they could cast Bill Murray as the director in the director's biopic (not knowing anything about the director and his movies)?

@tsarstepan,
Bill Murray? To me, that pix looks more like a thinner John Belushi than Murray.

@ossobuco,
Was the film called Get Out Your Handkerchiefs? If so, the director was Bertrand Blier.

What about the Coen Brothers, one of whom, Joel, is married to Frances McDormand who won the BEst Actress Oscar for Fargo?

Then there is the professional and formerly personal team of Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. Robbins directed Sarandon in her Oscar winning performance in Dead Man Walking.

Then there were the various women in Woody Allen's life and work including Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow.

But isn't John Belushi dead? Hard to make a film starring a dead actor though CGI artists and old footage could in theory cast the dead actor into the lead role.

@tsarstepan,
Yes, and he is STILL dead!

However, I had no idea of when that photo (or that movie) was taken.

It's amazing what they can do with voice-overs computer animation and makeup.
