* This trope dates at least as far back as 1941. In ''Love Crazy'', Creator/WilliamPowell and Creator/MyrnaLoy, who were starring in [[ThoseTwoActors their tenth film together]] (eventually they made 14), were billed this way. That same year, co-stars Charles Boyer and Creator/OliviaDeHavilland were billed this way in ''Film/HoldBackTheDawn''. Also that same year, Creator/HedyLamarr and [[Creator/JimmyStewart James Stewart]] were billed this way in ''Film/ComeLiveWithMe''.

* ''Film/OutrageousFortune'' had an unusual variation to ensure equal billing for its stars: Shelley Long got top billing west of the Mississippi, and Bette Midler got it on the east side.

The first time diagonal billing was used in a film was in ''Film/TheToweringInferno'', with Creator/PaulNewman and Creator/SteveMcQueen. They also received the same salary and ''the same number of lines'' (at [=McQueen's=] insistence). The idea was originally proposed when it was thought that Newman and [=McQueen=] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen would star in]] ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'', but dropped when Creator/RobertRedford was cast instead of [=McQueen=].
