Barbra Streisand co-wrote the Oscar-winning song "Evergreen" for "A Star is Born" (and co-starred with Ryan O'Neal in Peter Bogdanovich's must-see comedy "What's Up Doc?" at Warner Bros.).  At Paramount, Bogdanovich made both "Daisy Miller" and "Paper Moon," which earned O'Neal's daughter Tatum the supporting actress Oscar.  Bud Cort starred in the Hal Ashby classic "Harold and Maude." Jennifer Beals was a one-hit wonder in "Flashdance." Eva Marie Saint starred in Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest," shot in Paramount VistaVision.  "The Graduate" made Dustin Hoffman a star.

George Clooney starred in Jason Reitman's "Up in the Air," along with Anna Kendrick, while Charlize Theron and Patton Oswalt co-starred in Reitman's last film, "Young Adult." Marlee Matlin won an Oscar for "Children of a Lesser God." Jon Cryer and Molly Ringwald starred in the late great John Hughes' "Sixteen Candles." Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw starred in "Love Story." Jack Black starred in "School of Rock." Gore Verbinski directed the Oscar-winning "Rango" (where's Johnny Depp, who also starred in "Sweeney Todd"?).

Who else is missing? "Fatal Attraction" star Glenn Close and Kirk Douglas are there, but not Michael Douglas. We see Richard Gere but not his "Officer and a Gentleman" costar, Debra Winger, who also starred in "Terms of Endearment." We see Leonardo DiCaprio, who played Jack in "Titanic," along with Rose's mom, Frances Fisher, but no Kate Winslet or James Cameron (Fox made the movie in partnership with Paramount, which released it domestically). Morgan Freeman starred in countless Sherry Lansing thrillers, but where is Ashley Judd? Come to think of it, while current studio chief Brad Grey and long-time Paramount czar Robert Evans are the photo along with Viacom's Sumner Redstone and Philippe Dauman, where is Lansing, who deserves credit for many of these movies? 

Why are Katie Featherston and Julianne Hough in the picture? And can you identify all the Paramount top 100 hits in the poster below?
