Along with True Romance, The Natural is another favorite of mine that, even though it wasn't a 'purposful' big cast movie a la The Longest Day, nevertheless had a BIG CAST.  Even The Queen Mary had a bit role as the setting for the restaurant scene where "Roy counts his silver".
 
A Robert Towne script directed by Barry Levinson - it doesn't get better than that.  Many literary snobs didn't like the fact that Towne & Levinson changed Malamud's dreary ending; do not count me among them.  The movie was truly magnificent in every way, including sound and cinematography.

Surprised nobody has mentioned those disaster movies of the 1970's, such as Airport, The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure. They always had big casts. Granted, mostly B-listers and other actors you had forgotten all about, but it was always fun to spot them in these movies. Still is.

How about "You Can't Take It With You"? Lionel Barrymore wore a pretty large cast in that one...

Just watched "Airport '79---The Concorde" Saturday night. Big cast, although not as big as the earlier Airport movies had. Campy nowadays-----it had Jammy 'JJ" Walker in a role that seemed more suited for "Airplane"i

Gone Wth the Wind - Vivian Leigh was the least known actress in it, at the time. 
Posiedon Adventure/Towering Inferno
Chinatown - not a lot of actors, but some pretty heavy hitters

While they may not have started as "big cast" movies, both the Harry Potter & Lord of the Rings series have morphed into that genre.

ken8038 - sorry, didn't see your post on disaster movies until after -
 
There's a few more - Giant, the Misfits, most of Tennessee Williams' stuff - Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Suddenly Last Summer, The Long Hot Summer, Streetcar Named Desire(not a large, but impressive cast)
