I've heard that John Landis makes it a habit of putting other directors in cameo roles. In my original post I mentioned that Steven Spielberg appeared briefly in the 1980 film The Blues Brothers. The year before, Spielberg cast Landis in 1941 -- Landis portrayed Cpl. Mizerany.

The longest cameo has got to be Jerry Lewis in The King Of Comedy Cool
And how about John Malkovich in "Inside The Head Of.."

I was reminded of this thread while watching Bananas last night. A very young Sylvester Stallone makes an appearance as a thug on the subway.

But that was a bit part he did before he became a star, so it is only a cameo with hindsight Very Happy

A great cameo by Gene Barry as the father at the end of the movie -War of the Worlds. Its a great cameo because Barry played the part handled by Tom Cruise in the new version.

Then Travolta's bit part in Carrie also qualifies.

Did I miss any reference to one of the longest fights ever on the screen?

The Quiet Man

John Wayne is a wealthy American who travels to Ireland and falls in love with an Irish lass (Maureen O'Hara). However,her brother (Victor MacGlauglin) will have none of it. I believet the fight lasts for hours and they fight all over the village.

Hunter S Thompson showed up briefly in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, there were a few others in that movie as well but can't remember right now.

He was one of Norma's card-playing buddies, along with an old actress who's name escapes me.
