I have a quick and easy one -- Michael Douglas wanted this actress to play Joan Wilder in Romancing the Stone; but when they met to discuss it, she bit him (he says).  So Kathleen Turner got the part, presumably by not biting MD.  Who is the biting actress (but not necessarily the actress who bites)?

Well, Catherine Zeta-Jones would have been around 12 at the time of casting, but I think it makes a funny answer so I'm going with it.

Right hair color, wrong age. This actress was at one time hot-hot-hot; now she's more not-not-not, though I believe that's by her choice.

Second guess is stone cold wrong.

Karen Allen?  (I have no idea if she was hothothot by general standards of hotness, but I thought she was easy on the eyes...)

Oilcan has it with the wonderful Debra Winger. You're up, if you like.

(barton, I meant hot in terms of box office go-to-girlness, though Ms. Winger is also hot in the other way in the opinion of several authorities on the subject)

nytempsperdu

Night of the Iguana star,Deborah Kerr has just recently died.

This was a film however from which I expected great Tennessee Williams type things (after all, I held the book as prompter and knew the lines from memory at one time for: Streetcar), and what happened,zilch. Of so many great plays by Tom, made into films, like Orpheus Descending, made into: The Fugitive Kind

Or, The Rose Tattoo.  Besides the other more well-known popular films,
Iguana hit me as a bummer.

For Coconut Pete, life was one big party.

If that's correct, then....

In Romancing the Stone, Kathleen Turner takes a boat taxi ride -- what is the boat's name?  It might be the same name as a boat featured in "Jaws."

That's a layup - Orca.  I've literally (and I use that word correctly) seen "Jaws" 100 times.

We'll stay with boats and great movies from 1975 - What was the name of the boat that RP McMurphy and the other "doctors" took out on a fishing trip?

Wasn't it the name of somebody's wife or gf or similar?  Ohhh, it's on the tip of my brain....

I don't think so - it doesn't sound like a girl's name to me, but hey, I could be wrong, it's happened before, often, etc.
