Title: Degrees of Separation
Post by: Brendan on December 20, 2002, 12:16:15 AM
I remember we had this on the old board.

I didnt know if anyone was going to copy the old post over, but if you are, just either close this one down and start the new one, or add to this one.

But if I remember correctly, the rules were simple.

Give an actors name and we must connect them to Eastwood through other actors (only movies to, not TV, as I learned.) in the least amount of connections.

Anyway, if there was more rules or anyone knows the full rules please post them.

I'll get us started again.

He was in Coneheads with Michael McKean (True Crime).


Mike Myers
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: shabby chic on December 20, 2002, 09:56:58 AM
I saw McKean in a restaurant two weeks ago.  He was talking to that little red headed girl (Laura Ambrose) from 6 Feet Under.  I wanted to ask him about working with Clint, but I couldn't work up the nerve.

One of Mike Myers co-stars in the first Waynes World movie was Lara Flynn Boyle who was in The Rookie.

Eddie Izzard was in Cat's Meow with Jennifer Tilly who was in Liar Liar with Jim Carrey who was in Pink Cad and Dead Pool.

Eddie Izzard
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Holden Pike on December 20, 2002, 09:54:29 PM
There's a much easier link and a one-stepper for Izzard: he co-starred in Shadow of the Vampire with John Malkovich, Oscar nominated for his assassin In the Line of Fire.

And just using Bogdanovich's The Cat's Meow,  also along for that journey with Eddie was Victor Slezak - who played the elder version of Francesca's son going through her trunk in The Bridges of Madison County.

Next:
Oliver Platt
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on December 20, 2002, 10:34:27 PM
Oliver Platt was in Bulworth with Isaiah Washington in 1998 ... a year before Washington co-starred in True Crime with Clint.  8)

How's about Hugo Weaving?

KC
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Brendan on December 20, 2002, 11:06:02 PM
Hugo Weaving did the voice for 'Rex the Male Sheepdog' in Babe[/i] which starred James Cromwell who of course was in Space Cowboys with the man. (Eastwood)

Is this one acceptable KC?  :-\
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on December 20, 2002, 11:09:44 PM
That is, in fact, the one I had in mind ... Good work, Nightwing!  8)

Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation

Cool. ;D

Now... how about....Jean Claude Van-Dame?
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Holden Pike on December 21, 2002, 06:04:47 AM
Wham-Bam Van Damme was in the dreadful video-game-to-movie Street Fighter, which quite embarassingly was the late, great Raul Julia's last film. Raul of course was the "German" car thief in The Rookie.


Helen Hunt
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Xichado on December 21, 2002, 08:09:18 AM
Do the films that Clint directed count or just the ones where he stars? ???

If so... Helen Hunt was in "Pay It Forward" with Kevin Spacey, and he was in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Daisy Abigael on December 21, 2002, 08:37:02 AM
Yes, but she's also in Peggy Sue Got Married  which has Jim Carrey in a small part.  He is, of course, in The Dead Pool and Pink Caddy...


You post the next one, Xichado.  :) Even if yours isn't allowed - I've still got Xmas shopping to do!  :o
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Holden Pike on December 21, 2002, 10:57:38 AM
The Helen Hunt link I had in mind: long before she started winning Emmys and Oscars, she co-starred in the intentionally cheesy tongue-in-cheek low-budget '80s Sci-Fi Trancers pics with Tim Thomerson. Thomerson had a small but memorable role as the Highway Patrolman who pulls over Red to discover the stowaway in Honkytonk Man.

And yes, for purposes of this game in earlier incarnations on this board, we had been including Clint's credits as director but not actor (Bird, Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil, Breezy and the upcoming Mystic River).


Your turn, Xichado!
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Xichado on December 21, 2002, 07:16:19 PM
Thank you Daisy and Holden.

It was the first time I played the game and I wasn't aware of the rules... plus I was mega-late to work this morning and I just typed the first thing that came to mind.

Daisy, I also noticed Helen Hunt the last time I saw Peggy Sue Got Married. She plays the role of Peggy's daughter.

I don't know if her name has been mentioned but since she is a bigger nut than moi ;D

Anne Heche
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Brendan on December 21, 2002, 08:21:09 PM
Anne Heche was in John Q with Robert Duvall who was in Joe Kidd with Eastwood.

Paul Gross
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Holden Pike on December 21, 2002, 08:59:28 PM
Gross was in the adaptation of Armistead Maupin's "Tales from the City" with Laura Linney (Absolute Power & Mystic River) and Michael Jeter (True Crime).


Janeane Garofalo
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Brendan on December 21, 2002, 09:23:54 PM

JB was in Salvador with James (True Crime) Woods...

The new one is, er, Challenging... ::)  I can do it in three steps.

Quote
Leon Trotsky

Yeah.  That Leon Trotsky and it is as an actor in a movie not as a historical figure or documentary footage!
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on December 22, 2002, 10:30:59 PM
Daisy, believe it or not, I've got it in two ...  :o

Trotsky's only appearance as an actor (not as "himself") in the IMDB is in My Official Wife (1914), in which he is said to have done a "bit (uncredited)." Starring in that as "Helene Marie," who according to the plot summary is "on the run from the Russian police in St. Petersburg [and] plots to kill the Czar," was Clara Kimball Young. Young, who died as recently as 1960, had a long career ... she's credited with 151 appearances as actor in the IMDb. Among them, I located 1938's The Mysterious Pilot, which featured legendary stuntman Yakima Canutt as "Indian Luke."

Canutt ... and I didn't know this ... is credited as second unit director on Where Eagles Dare.

Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on December 22, 2002, 10:41:05 PM
For a new one, how about the famous/notorious German star of stage and screen ... Gustaf Gründgens?

This can be done in no more than two easy steps. ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Red on December 23, 2002, 04:47:39 AM
I don't know how 'easy' it is but.....

Gustaf Grundgens was in Das gab's nur einmal in 1958 with Marlene Dietrich.

Ms Dietrich was in Paris - when it sizzles(1964) with William Holden (Breezy).

If that meets KCs exacting standards let's try..

Dusan Antonijevic
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on December 23, 2002, 11:04:40 AM
That wasn't the route I had in mind, Red, but it works just as well!

Dusan was in some of the "Sauerkraut Westerns" back in the sixties, which were based on Karl May's "Winnetou" books  ... they were filmed in his neck of the woods, which at the time went by the name of Yugoslavia.

One of them, Old Surehand (1965) featured Wolfgang Lukschy. Lukschy was "John Baxter" in A Fistful of Dollars.

Here's an easy one ... connect Clint and fellow California politician Ronald Reagan.

KC
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Daisy Abigael on December 23, 2002, 11:15:21 AM
Old Ron's last real film appearance was in Don Siegel's The Killers - so there are a number of ways to slice that banana! ;D

Since that movie featured Lee Marvin - I'd connect him to Paint Your Wagon.

Rolf Harris!
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Red on December 23, 2002, 12:58:58 PM
I grew up watching Rolf on TV and I knew all the words to 'Two Little Boys' when I was 8!

Rolf was in Crash Drive (1959) a movie which also featured Anton Rodgers who had an uncredited bit part in Where Eagles Dare.

Next Stanley Holloway
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Holden Pike on December 23, 2002, 05:05:27 PM
Stanley Holloway was In Harm's Way with George Kennedy (Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, The Eiger Sanction) and Carol O'Connor (Kelly's Heroes).



Sterling "Oh, bother..." Holloway (no relation)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on December 23, 2002, 05:19:49 PM

The ever beautiful, Lana Parrilla
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on December 23, 2002, 08:47:17 PM
Lana Parrilla, whoever she is, has only been in two movies, neither of which I've ever heard of, namely Spiders and Very Mean Men, both 2000.
 
Also in the cast of Very Mean Men was Billy Drago, who turned up as one of Stockburn's deputies in Pale Rider ... "Deputy Mather," according to the cast list ... must be a distant descendant of ol' Cotton.

Speaking of cotton ... how about Joseph Cotten?

KC
 
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Brendan on December 23, 2002, 09:07:50 PM
KC, Lana Parrilla, plays 'Theresa Ortiz' in the hit NBC show 'Boomtown'.

Shes very good looking and does well in her VERY SMALL >:( part.
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on December 23, 2002, 09:16:40 PM
Nightwing, there are no small parts ... only small actors!  ;)

I'm sorry, but we're talking movies here. I don't watch TV, except for Clint, and baseball.

KC
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Holden Pike on December 24, 2002, 02:23:54 AM
One of Joseph Cotten's last roles was in Michael Cimino's epic flop Heaven's Gate, which starred Jeff Bridges (Thunderbolt & Lightfoot) and featured Geoffrey Lewis (manytime collaborator). And Cimino of course wrote and directed Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, as well as workig on the Magnum Force script.


Lily Tomlin
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Red on December 24, 2002, 01:47:15 PM
Lily Tomlin was in Woody Allens Shadows and Fog along with John Malkovich (In the line of Fire).

Jean-Jacques Moreau
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Red on January 05, 2003, 03:16:41 PM
Time for a clue, methinks.

It is a one stepper and a French actor is the link.
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Daisy Abigael on January 05, 2003, 06:01:53 PM
Extremely difficult - it's a good job I got insomnia! ;D

My Friend the Traitor (1988) stars both Jean-Jacques Moreau and a fellow named Jean-Pierre Bernard who was in The Eiger Sanction.

Sheesh. :o

New one:  That old devil Wilfrid Hyde-White.
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on January 07, 2003, 07:30:12 AM
Hyde-White was in Richard Donner's 1982 Richard Pryor starrer, The Toy. The "aerobics class leader" in that one was played by Stuart Baker-Bergen ... who was the "blond surfer" in Tightrope (his only other film appearance, aside from a TV movie).

I won't be able to post another till tonight ... Daise, if you're out there, you can go again if you want to!  :)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on January 07, 2003, 09:13:33 PM
OK, how about character actor Brad Dourif?
(http://ia.imdb.com/media/imdb/01/I/23/35/22f.jpg)

There are at least three one-steppers here, probably more ... he is a busy man! ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Brendan on January 07, 2003, 09:33:43 PM
Brad Dourif (amazing character actor) was in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers with Hugo Weaving who played the sheep dog ??? in Babe which starred James Cromwell, Space Cowboys.

And Brad Dourif was also in Childs Play 3 with Andrew Robinson who was in Dirty Harry.

Gregg Henry
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on January 07, 2003, 10:25:18 PM
Nighty, there's an easier link via Lord of the Rings ... a one-stepper. Do you know it?

And, besides Child's Play 3, there are at least two other one-steppers ... it might be fun to have a thread where we try to identify the actor who's been in the most movies with Eastwood co-stars, without ever having co-starred with Eastwood himself.  8)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Brendan on January 07, 2003, 10:52:10 PM

Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation

Jean Claude co-starred with Geoffrey Lewis is Double Something.

Post by: Christopher on January 10, 2003, 03:38:35 PM
Assuming that what Nightwing had in mind, I'll post another one:

How about Renée Zellweger

(I know there's one very obvious one and probably the most simple, but I've got another one in mind)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Brendan on January 11, 2003, 07:33:40 PM
I dont actually ever have one mind when I post a person. I just hope you guys can find one, and if it works, thats cool. 8)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Brendan on January 11, 2003, 07:35:57 PM
How about Renée Zellweger

Renee was in Me, Myself and Irene with Jim Carrey, who was in The Dead Pool.

If thats the obivous one (which I think it is) and not the one you had in mind, then leave it open.
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on January 11, 2003, 08:46:15 PM
There's another obvious one I personally like even better ... Zellweger was in Neil LaBute's Nurse Betty (2000) with none other than Morgan Freeman, Will Munny's unfaithful sidekick Ned.  ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Christopher on January 12, 2003, 01:38:56 PM
Wow, I didn't even think of that one, KC. The one I had in mind went to Morgan Freeman as well (it just went from a different movie and had an extra step in there)

Whoever wants to go next out of KC or Nightwing can go ahead.

Robert Vaughn guests in the only cinema effort of this non-entity - Heat and Dust (1997) - The old man from Uncle was of course in Bullett which has a small part for Robert (Joe Kidd) Duvall.

Ye gods and catfish, Nighty.  A hero of yours is he? ::)

No, George plays Nick Stokes on CSI, which is one of my favourite shows.

And the movie is Dust to Dust not Heat and Dust. ::)

Anyway, your up Daisy.
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on January 14, 2003, 06:36:55 PM
And ... Dust to Dust was released in 1994, not 1997! ;) (Not that I've ever seen it!  :o )

I have seen Heat and Dust ... a Merchant-Ivory movie from 1983.

I know we're not counting made for TV movies here, but I can't resist pointing out that this Eads fellow (sounds like an acronym) was in a project called The Spring in 2000 ... costarring in that was a lass by the name of Alison Eastwood.  ;)

Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Daisy Abigael on March 01, 2003, 01:07:40 PM
Well, Our Norm is a strictly godawful British comedian of the 50s and 60s but he did make at least one movie in America with a rather diverse and interesting cast.

And a thriller most recently which features an Eastwood co-star.  A compatriot of Wisdom that Eastwood finds having to unwillingly carry out matters of life and death.
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on March 01, 2003, 02:05:01 PM
Daisy, the link would be Double X: The Name of the Game (1992) ... which starred Wisdom and Bernard Hill (as "Ignatious 'Iggy' Smith"). Hill, of course, played the troubled Warden Plunkitt in True Crime.
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on March 01, 2003, 02:08:20 PM
Have we had Charles Boyer lately?
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Daisy Abigael on March 01, 2003, 05:23:41 PM
Were you thinking Casino Royale, KC?

Boyer is in it (right in it, some would say! ;D) and Richard "Where Eagles Dare" Burton has a fleeting walk-on.

Is that too flimsy?
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on March 01, 2003, 06:01:17 PM
Hmm, I know we've had Boyer before, and I know we've had Casino Royale as an answer before. Whether or not as an answer for Boyer, I don't know ... tell you what, Daisy, see if you can come up with another one. I know there is at least one other film out there that has Boyer and not one, but two Eastwood co-stars.

Maybe we should just declare Casino Royale off-limits (so to speak) for this game, once and for all ... ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Daisy Abigael on March 01, 2003, 06:50:26 PM

LOL! ;D

Well before we ban it as well let me get in with Around The World In 80 Days!  Our old pal Charles Boyer is joined by Eastwood co-stars Shirley "Two Mules..." MacLaine and Victor "Lady Godiva" McLaglen at least... ::)
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on March 01, 2003, 07:07:36 PM
OK, Daise, good enough! Though I was looking for a film with two co-stars from Clint's "mainstream" period. But in a filmography of Boyer's size, that is rather like looking for that proverbial needle in the haystack ... So, you're up.
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: Daisy Abigael on March 03, 2003, 09:47:55 AM
I reckon Two Mules... was pretty "mainstream", KC, but I take the point with Godiva! :)

What was the better answer?  Hmm?

New one:  Joan Crawford
Title: Re:Degrees of Seperation
Post by: KC on March 03, 2003, 08:49:31 PM
Boyer was in The Buccaneer (1958) with Inger Hang 'em High Stevens and E.G. Absolute Power Marshall ...

There are probably a number of one-steppers for Crawford. The two I found without much difficulty are these:

The Karate Killers (1967) starred Crawford and Telly Kelly's Heroes Savalas ... say, that one rhymes! ;)

And the "cult" Nick Ray Western Johnny Guitar (1954)  starred Crawford and featured Royal Dano and Sheb Wooley, both of whom had small parts in The Outlaw Josey Wales (for good measure, Wooley was a regular for a few years on  Rawhide's endless cattle drive), and Dennis Hopper, the Prophet hisself in Hang 'em High.  8)

Ah, but Dean Stockwell was also in Blue Velvet with Dennis "Hang 'Em High" Hopper!

But there is a one-stepper.  The lengthy one :o was in The Warriors (1955) which featured the treasurable Sir Michael Hordern.  He, you will remember as kindly old buffer on the radio to Richard Burton in Where Eagles Dare:  "Broadsword calling Danny boy!"

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men,
Feared by the bad, loved by the good,
Robin Hood! Robin Hood! Robin Hood!

He called the greatest archers to a tavern on the green,
They vowed to help the people of the king,
They handled all the trouble on the English country scene,
And still found plenty of time to sing.

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men,
Feared by the bad, loved by the good,

Greene, oddly enough given his name, was in Otto Preminger's costumer Forever Amber (1947) with John Russell (Pale Rider's Stockburn) as "Black Jack Mallard." Just ducky!

Post by: Daisy Abigael on April 05, 2003, 02:44:05 AM

Let me make this absolutely clear:

It was never, never, never my intention to mention or draw attention to Clint's incunabula.  I know he is rightly sensitive about this affliction, has never exposed it in public and doesn't like folks talking about it on the internet.

It was shameful and remiss of me to even refer to it tangentially.

Cut off my hands if you like.  Tape over my keyboard. But...  Please forgive me!


I've been warned many times in the past - but, you know me:  It all goes incunabula and out the other....

To answer the question - again:  Dougie has a walk on - uncredited - in Chase a Crooked Shadow (1957); down the cast list is British actor Alan Tilvern and he played "Air Marshal Kutuzov" in Firefox.

Does that do it?  The fact that Fairbanks' connection is an uncredited walk-on is a little unsatisfying.  It's driving me bonkers! ???

Do you mean because he's a director, not an actor? (Aside from an uncredited bit in some Star Trek thingie or other.)

I guess it's OK, Nightwing ... but then there has to be a connection to a film that Clint directed, and didn't act in! ;)

And ... there is. Singer directed The Usual Suspects (1995), which featured Kevin Spacey (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) ... and just for good measure, Dan Hedaya (Tightrope).

Hmmmm, well, he doesn't have any acting credits, except for the one Star Trek role, for which he strictly speaking doesn't have an acting credit either, since he was ... "uncredited" ... and a few turns as "himself," which isn't acting ... is it?

However that may be ... Bryan Singer played "himself" in Cannes Man (1996), which starred Seymour Cassel ("Joe," the punk who annoyed Julie, in Coogan's Bluff) ... and a long string of other "Himselfs" and "Herselfs" with Eastwood credits, namely: Lara Flynn Boyle (The Rookie), Ann Cusack (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil), Dennis Hopper (Hang 'em High), John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire), Chris Penn (Pale Rider) ... and Nino Cerruti, who's done most of Clint's costumes since In the Line of Fire.

They provided the theme song The power of Love for the first Back to the Future movie in which Huey had a one line uncredited part. Also in BTTF was Frances Lee McCain who was way down the cast list in True Crime.

I was only able to find the following link

Donnie Yen was in Highlander: Endgame (I love the tv show but the movies just put me to sleep >:( ) with Ian Paul Cassidy. And he is listed at IMDB as a Secret Service Agent (uncredited) in In The Line Of Fire.

Legosi was in the allegedly "worst movie ever made" ... and cult fave ... Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959), directed by the immortal Ed Wood.

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

Hey KC,

There is a one-stepper, which can be found in Clin't early days as a movie actor.  ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on October 24, 2003, 07:27:04 PM
I gots it!

The link is Kuniko Miyake ... who was in both Wim Wenders's Bis ans Ende der Welt (1991), in which Amália had a bit as a "Woman in Street Car," and Escapade in Japan (1957), the next to last of ten films Eastwood had insignificant roles in before he landed a fairly major part in Ambush in Cimarron Pass ...

Good one, Xichado (even if we "usually" exclude those early films when playing this game)! You connected Portugal, Japan and Clint in one easy step ...

I'm afraid my knowledge of fado is woefully small ... I take it Amália Rodrigues is a legend in that art form?
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on October 24, 2003, 07:46:21 PM
For a new one ... how about the German star of the 50s and 60s (and one-time wife of singer Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau) ... Ruth Leuwerik?
(http://www.prisma-online.de/image/58/mmfroebus_01165358.jpeg)

There is at least one one-stepper, and it's not via Clint's "early days"! ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Xichado on October 24, 2003, 08:02:11 PM
You're GREAT!

The one-stepper I had in mind was a different one though  ;). Amália Rodrigues was in Les Amants du Tage (1955) with Marcel Dalio and he had a role in Lafayette Escadrille (1958) with Clint.

Quote
even if we "usually" exclude those early films when playing this game

 :o ooops! Sorry, I didn't know. I'll keep it in mind  :).

Amália was/is a legend. She is the soul, the heart and the voice of Fado and of the portuguese soul. Her (small) movie career was also very good.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on October 24, 2003, 08:24:27 PM
Gee, so I guess I'M the one who connected Portugal, Japan and Clint in a single step!  :o

Post by: KC on October 26, 2003, 11:21:47 AM
Sorry to say, I'm not, Gant ...  :o

Stephen Ray was in Michael Collins (1996), which starred Liam Neeson (The Dead Pool). He was also in The Crying Game (1992), which undeservedly won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar over Unforgiven, with Forest Whitaker, who starred in Bird, but I guess we aren't including Eastwood's "director-only" efforts in this game.

Gant, why don't you go again? I'm still feeling down from last night's World Series loss. Going out to drown my sorrows in a cup of coffee.

Well done... different to mine, I was going from Rea to Timothy Spall in the excellent Life is Sweet and then on to White Hunter..

Sorry to hear your team aint doin' so well. Mine drew today making us top of the premiership  ;D so am in celebratory mood...

I strongly urge you to check out Wisdom.. the true king of comedy ;D

Hi, Holden. Best I can do is two degrees. Dean Jagger was in Day of the Evil Gun with Arthur Kennedy, who was in Some Came Running with Shirley MacLaine, who would go on to co-star with Clint in Two Mules for Sister Sara.

Anyone got a one-stepper? :)

Post by: KC on November 03, 2003, 09:33:38 PM
That's great, Matt! That wasn't the one I found, but it works just as well.

For fun ... can anyone find an Italian actor who was in a single Eastwood film (yes, a Western) ... and in a film with Philipe?

Matt, you get to post a new one, in any case.  :D
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 03, 2003, 09:56:08 PM
Cool, I did it right.  ;D

If anyone can come up with KC's answer, post away.  Until then, here's the next:

Tilda Swinton  :-*
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 03, 2003, 10:01:31 PM
You a Tilda fan, Matt?  ;) I found a couple one steppers for her, but I'll let someone else have a go ... Gant?  :D
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 03, 2003, 10:07:17 PM
Yup, I like her.  :)

I also had a feeling she wouldn't have been used before in this thread, and I didn't want to read through the previous 20 or so pages to make sure I didn't repeat someone.

You found a few one-steppers already?  :o  Man, you're good.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: eustressor on November 03, 2003, 10:30:23 PM
Tilda Swinton was in Adaptation with Meryl "Francesca" Streep, of Bridges of Madison County fame.

I'll have to leave further one-steppers with the great Gérard Phillipe to those greater than myself. I have to echo Gant's remarks, as I've been through a fair share of his catalog already to no avail. Kudos to you both, KC and Matt, for coming up with and solving that one, respectively...

"Game over,  Man!"

Bill Paxton
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 03, 2003, 10:39:17 PM
That works! I had found a link to Tilda with Toby Stephens of Space Cowboys, who was in Orlando with her.  I've been meaning to see Adaptation for a while now. Maybe now that baseball season is over, I'll be visiting Blockbuster more often.

Bill Paxton was in Titanic with Bernard Hill, who was the Warden in True Crime.

If that's good, I'll need a few minutes to find another actor. They're harder than answering.

Brían Blessed

"Third wave... DIVE!" ;) Brian Blessed was in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner (A Perfect World). However, it appears Penelope Cruz was in Masked and Anonymous with Jeff "Lightfoot" Bridges (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot).

How about that smoldering, dark-haired Swede with the exhilarating smile:

Lena Olin  :P

Jean-Paul Belmondo was in Il Giorno più corto with Toto who was also in Le Streghe (The Witches).  Another one stepper is Les Cent et une nuits de Simon Cinéma with Francisco Rabal who was in Le Streghe as well.

Les Cent et une nuits de Simon Cinéma (http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0112654/fullcredits) also includes a cameo of Clint himself! Don't know if that would count as a zero stepper or not.  ???

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

How about.... David Bowie

How about the controversial German star of stage and screen ... and one-time son-in-law of Thomas Mann ... Gustaf Gründgens? There's at least one one-stepper.  ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 05, 2003, 04:16:37 PM
Gustaf Gründgens was in Ohm Krüger with Wolfgang Lukschy who played John Baxter in A Fistful of Dollars.

Quote
JOHN BAXTER: I saw the whole thing. You killed all four of them. You'll pay all right. You'll be strung up.

JOE: Who are you?

JOHN BAXTER: I'm John Baxter, sheriff.

JOE: Yeah, well, if you're the sheriff, you'd better get those men underground.

Here's an interesting little tidbit I learned about Lukschy from his IMDb page (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0525742/)

Quote
He was the German dubbing voice of Gary Cooper and John Wayne.

That's pretty cool to know.  8)

For the next one, I did a forum search for this actress and she didn't come up in this thread, so I hope that's reliable (the search function seldom is) and I hope I'm not repeating one. She's another favorite of mine, Ms. Katharine Hepburn.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Xichado on November 05, 2003, 05:11:46 PM

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: eustressor on November 05, 2003, 05:55:22 PM
I'll bet there's more than one way to solve this one, but Sir Sean was in Hunt For Red October with the talented character actor Fred Dalton Thompson, a sometime senator from Tennessee who also appeared in In The Line Of Fire :D

Remember the early days of MTV? How about Mickey's unrequited cheerleading paramour, Toni Basil?
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 05, 2003, 06:28:20 PM
I remember those days... but I wish I could forget that song.  :-\

They had the coolest music and the coolest car. Starsky starred in 1980's Phobia alongside Kenneth Welsh, who was in Absolute Power.

Weird Al Yankovic

That's great, Hemlock! Actually, I was hoping someone would find a connection via an actor other than Agar. We've got a semi-serious rule around here not to use those pre-stardom films of Clint's. But anyway ... Steve Martin was in the wonderfully titled Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) with Reni "Chico" Santoni of Dirty Harry fame.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 06, 2003, 10:10:50 PM
KC, for some bonus peanuts I'll give you another connection for the voluptuous Ms. Russell. :)

(http://www.soltec.net/~java/jr01.jpg)

The not-so-plain-Jane was in Foxfire with Mara Corday who was in Tarantula that same year (1955) with a barely recognizable Clint.  (I know... I'm getting to the post-Dollars films now ;) ) as well as the following:

The Gauntlet
Sudden Impact (In her most memorable performance in an Eastwood film as the diner waitress who pours the sugar)
Pink Cadillac
The Rookie

I'd like to post a picture of Ms. Corday, who was every bit as beautiful as Jane back in her day, but... I don't think the picture would make it through the censors. Wow!  :o  :-* Pour some sugar on me....  :D

Forget the peanuts, KC.  A glass of ice water might be better.  :-[

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 06, 2003, 10:40:52 PM
Thanks, KC, I needed that.  I think I've recovered enough to post the next. A forum search for this actress came up empty, so here's hoping I'm not repeating her:

Bette Davis
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 06, 2003, 10:49:10 PM
Guess you don't need any ice water for her, huh? One of Ms. Davis's final roles was in The Whales of August (1987) and also in that one was Tisha Sterling (Coogan's Bluff) ... playing, oddly, a character called "Young Tisha."
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 06, 2003, 10:57:55 PM
How about a frequent Davis co-star (Jezebel and Dark Victory, to mention two) ... George Brent? Looking for a one-stepper, so no fair going via Bette. ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 06, 2003, 11:01:54 PM
As attractive as Bette was as a young woman, after seeing What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? .... no ice water, or even tap water, will ever be necessary.  :o

Good work, KC, with the Tisha Sterling connection. :D
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 06, 2003, 11:09:58 PM
This probably isn't the one you're looking for, but here goes anyway:

George Brent was in Illegal Entry with James Nolan, who is the unfortunate liquor store owner who is beaten and robbed by Scorpio in Dirty Harry.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 06, 2003, 11:21:27 PM

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on November 06, 2003, 11:52:45 PM
Nope, but I've seen the cast lists often enough to know a lot of them.... and other times, a name just looks more familiar than the others, and sure enough.... they turn out to be in one of the films.

Okay, here's the next... the beautiful Claire Forlani

Post by: KC on November 07, 2003, 08:18:18 PM
Almodóvar favorite Rossy De Palma was in Mike Figgis's The Loss of Sexual Innocence (1999) with Bernard Hill (True Crime). I was hoping I'd be able to link her via one of Clint's Spanish or Italian co-stars from the Leone films, but that's the best I can do ...

How about a Fassbinder favorite ... Irm Hermann?

How about this one....

Jim Hutton was in Major Dundee with Richard Harris, who was in Unforgiven.

(I first ran along Never Too Late where Jim Hutton was in the cast with Pamelyn Ferdin (Amy in The Beguiled) but since she was listed as "uncredited" I didn't figure that was a very strong connection. I do like using those actors that aren't among the more commonly connected in this game.)

Leslie Nielson was the ill-fated skipper of the U.S.S. Poseidon in The Poseidon Adventure, starring Gene Hackman, Unforgiven's Little Bill Daggett.

This is at least the second connection I can remember finding through The Poseidon Adventure. Gotta love those all-star cast 70's disaster flicks :D

I found a two-stepper. Is there a one-step solution you know about, KC?

Robert Donat was in Perfect Strangers with Glynis Johns, who appeared in that great Christmas movie, The Ref with Judy Davis, who was in Absolute Power.

Completely OT, but I watch The Ref every Christmas :o :)

Can anyone beat two?

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 12, 2003, 08:06:34 PM
That one's not up to your usual standards, Xichado (not the woman  :-* , but the degree of difficulty). Without even looking in the IMDb I know La Cardinale starred in Once Upon a Time in the West, and accordingly she shared the screen with quite a few Leone "regulars." Also, I seem to recall she was in Fitzcarraldo (by Werner Herzog) with good ol' FAFDM hunchback Klaus Kinski ...

And sure enough, a glance at the cast list for Once Upon the Time in the West yields these characters who were in OUATITW and also in one or more of the three Leone films that starred Clint: Frank Braña, Antonio Molino Rojo, Al Mulock, Aldo Sambrell, Benito Stefanelli. The Kinski connection via Fitzcarraldo also proves true to my memory of it ... ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Xichado on November 12, 2003, 08:21:53 PM
Shucks! You're right.

I had OUATITW in mind as a starting point but I guess the thought of her obscured the rest of the cast and the Leone connections from my mind  ::) (I must be having a late 20's hormonal crises... it's just me or it's getting hot in here)

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 12, 2003, 08:30:57 PM
Well, most of those guys I named from the cast of OUATITW had pretty small parts, so I could have said I wouldn't count 'em ... and I still would have gotten it with Fitzcarraldo. ;)

Frankie was in Come Blow Your Horn (1963) with Lee J.

For a new one, how about that accomplished German actress ... and even more accomplished director, Margarethe von Trotta? (Unlike Clint, I believe she has never directed herself in a film.)

Since many German films are made for TV but released theatrically and/or shown in festivals abroad, I'll allow films labeled "TV" in the IMDb. And there is at least one one-stepper featuring Trotta as an actress ... There may be more among her films as director. ;)

Yeah, and I'm not counting the uncredited cameos he's done from time to time.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 18, 2003, 07:14:20 PM
Hmmm ... according to the IMDb, he only acted in two films that weren't made-for-TV ventures, and I'm not finding a one-stepper there. But he was in the made-for-TV anthology film Body Bags (1993); he appeared in one of the John Carpenter segments, "The Gas Station." And appearing in another segment ("Eye," directed by Tobe Hooper) was John Agar ... he starred in three of Eastwood's "incunabula," namely Revenge of the Creature (1955), Tarantula (1955) and Star in the Dust (1956). (We also have a sort of, kind of rule not to use those pre-starring vehicles in this game ... though it's been broken before. ;) )

Was that what you were looking for, Chris?  ???
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Xichado on November 18, 2003, 07:35:55 PM
I think I know the one stepper that Chris has in mind... that's because I remember him mentioning the movie (which I also like) but, at IMDB, the movie does not appear listed in Wes Craven's acting career (maybe because he's "playing" himself  ???)

The movie is New Nightmare (1994) which also includes John Saxon (Joe Kidd)
 

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 18, 2003, 09:34:00 PM
That might be it ... the IMDb now puts people's appearances as "himself"/"herself" in a separate category (good idea, that).  

I noticed that Saxon was in the original Nightmare on Elm Street, but I eliminated that from consideration after Chris said he was looking for him "as an actor." If that's right ... good one, Chris.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Christopher on November 18, 2003, 09:37:31 PM
That's the one, Xichado!

If you look at John Saxon's page, I don't think it lists New Nightmare either. And that credit is lacking from Heather Langenkamps as well. Do you suppose it's because they are playing themselves (even though they're still acting)? Maybe someone oughta let the IMDb in on this.

I see what you're referring to now, KC, how they have the "himself/herself" listed separately.

Are you looking for a one-stepper? And if so ... are you allowing "archive footage"? Because so far that's the only way I can find one ....  :o
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Hemlock on November 19, 2003, 11:36:09 PM
There`s one-stepper and two-stepper.
Bill"The Bojangles"Robinson was in film named Dixiana(`30)as an "specialty dancer"with E.G.Marshall who was with Eastwood in Absolute Power.
Is this the"archive footage"that you mentioned KC ???
Anyway there´s two-stepper also.Bill Robinson was in film Rebecca Of Sunnybrook(`38)with Shirley Temple and Randolph Scott who was in  Ride The High Country(`62)and Buchanan Rides Alone(`58)with L.Q.Jones(Hang`Em High)and in Ride Lonesome(`59) with Lee Van Cleef(GBU,FAFDM)and Lee Marvin(Paint Your Wagon).

Bill"The Bojangles"Robinson was in film named Dixiana(`30)as an "specialty dancer"with E.G.Marshall who was with Eastwood in Absolute Power.

If the IMDb is correct, the Marshall in 1930's Dixiana was not E. G. (forenames possibly Everett Gunnar), born 1910, or as he insisted, 1914 ... who made his film debut in 1945's The House on 92nd Street, according to that same IMDb. Rather, it was Everett Marshall (1901-1965), whom the IMDb credits with only two film roles (the other was in 1935's I Live for Love). So, that's not a one-stepper.

The one I had in mind was  via That's Dancing! (1985), which featured archival footage of Robinson and also of Shirley (Two Mules) MacLaine. I really think archival footage shouldn't "count" in this game, however.

I'm sure there are plenty of two-steppers ... there always are ... ;)

Yes, I am looking for a one-stepper and no, not thru "archive footage".  :)

Clue: Clint's hairy co-star.


Mr. Bojangles aside. Are we allowed to use Le Streghe (1967) in the game?  ???

Yesterday, for about a hour, I tried to find a one-stepper between Clint and Giulietta Masina... I found many two-steppers and the only one-stepper I could find was thru Le Streghe... it almost drove me nut (I mean, just added to my insanity  :D).
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on November 20, 2003, 06:47:59 PM
Well, I'm pretty sure Clyde wasn't old enough to have appeared in a picture with Robinson ... but George Chandler (clerk at the DMV in Every Which Way but Loose) was! He appeared (uncredited) in Alan Dwan's One Mile From Heaven (1937) ... which featured "Bojangles" as "Officer Joe."

How about if we say you can use Le Streghe ... but only the segment Clint was in, "Una Sera come le altre"? ;)

Post by: KC on November 22, 2003, 10:35:50 AM
Oh wait! I found it! One more glance at Ms. Hope's filmography, plus Xichado's clue, did it ... the answer had to be found in Naughty, Naughty! (1918), in which Gloria Hope played "Judith Holmes." Also appearing, as "Prudence Sampson," was Marjorie Bennett ... and fifty years later, she had a memorable cameo as "Mrs. Fowler" (the little old lady who cried rape) in Coogan's Bluff!  :o

No fewer than three once or future Clint co-stars joined Gregory Peck in Mackenna's Gold (1969) ... a project Eastwood himself had been sought for, but that he turned down in favor of Hang 'em High. They are: Telly Savalas (Kelly's Heroes), Lee J. Cobb (Coogan's Bluff) ... and old Tuco himself, Eli Wallach.

Very good, Hemlock! I saw the Carol Channing connection but I wasn't counting it because we decided to stay away from those early films of Eastwood, even if in this case they did actually have a couple of nice little scenes together.

James Bolam was in Otley (1968) with Freddie Jones (Firefox). He also was the voice of "The Tod" in the animated feature The Plague Dogs (1982), in which Nigel Hawthorne (also Firefox) was the voice of Dr. Robert Boycott.

Have we had the lovely Isabelle Huppert?
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

Well done. Not my route but just as good..

Isabelle was in The Bedroom Window 1987  with Carl Lumbly who played a con in Escape From Alcatraz.

That was a toughie, think I got a little lucky there..... ;)

Curd/Curt is in The Memphisto Waltz 1971  with Bradford Dillman who went on to be a pain in the a** for Inspecter Callahan as McCay and Briggs in The Enforcer and Sudden Impact.

He was also in The Spy Who Loved me with Richard Kiel who took a rather nasty blow to the **** in Pale Rider... :D

...and 62's The Longest Day with Richard Burton who talked a lot in Where Eagles Dare with Clint and Michael Hordon.

OK... Next up............Molly Ringwald

That's easy, and the one I was going to post myself, if I ever got the chance. Molly starred in 16 Candles, which features a very young John Cusack, who was in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

I don't know if that means I get to post one now, but just in case, how about....

Rachel Griffiths?

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on December 15, 2003, 11:42:59 PM
Hmmm ... that suggests Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines (1965) ... Hill was in that with Alberto Sordi, and Sordi was in Le streghe ... however, he was in the segment "Senso Civico," directed by Mauro Bolognini, not the one Clint was in, "Una sera come le altre," directed by Vittorio De Sica. When Xichado asked whether Le streghe was "legal" for the purposes of this game, I said we'd make it a rule that you could use it only if the actor in question was in Clint's segment.

Was that the one you had in mind, Gant?  ???

Co-starring as Eve Rand, who gets to put on quite a show in an attempt to please Chauncey, who only knows one thing about life in general ... "I like to watch" ...  :o ... was Shirley MacLaine (Two Mules for Sister Sara).

Famed character actor Cook was in Don Siegel's Baby Face Nelson (1957) with Thayer David ... the creepy "Dragon" in The Eiger Sanction.

Dick Miller was in It Conquered the World (1956) with the future Col. Mortimer (For a Few Dollars More) and Angel Eyes (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly), Lee Van Cleef himself. I can't resist quoting the summary of this film from the IMDb (http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0049370/plotsummary) ...

Quote
One of several remaining members of its race, an alien from Venus is guided to Earth by disgruntled scientist Tom Anderson  [Van Cleef], who tells it which humans it should attach mind control devices to. Among them is his old friend, fellow scientist Paul Nelson. Nelson, after killing a flying bat-thing which carries the device, finally persuades the paranoid Anderson that he's been wrong to ally himself with an alien bent on world domination. They hurriedly leave when they discover Tom's wife has picked up a rifle and gone to the alien's cave to try to kill it.

Dominique was in the classic 1971 flick Damnation Ally with Robert Donner who had a small part in High Plains Drifter.

He's also in a 1967 film called El Magnifico Extranjero with Paul Brinigar and Clint Eastwood. Whats this all about. Know anything about this one KC? Have I stumbled across a great lost Eastwood movie.... :)

Next up... The gorgeous Yvonne De Carlo.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on January 04, 2004, 02:13:13 AM
El magnifico extranjero (http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0368852/) isn't a film, properly speaking, at all. It's a couple of episodes of Rawhide strung together, which was marketed in Europe in 1967 as if it were a new Clint Eastwood film, just when Eastwood's popularity as the star of the "Dollars" films was at its international peak. Eastwood had to take legal action against Jolly Film (producers of A Fistful of Dollars), who had licensed the episodes and were attempting to distribute the resulting product; see Schickel's Clint Eastwood, p. 175. I'm not sure whether the film was actually shown in theaters, but publicity materials for it certainly exist and can sometimes be found in places like eBay.

Gant, I'd have thought you'd pick The Mackintosh Man as your choice of film to link Sanda and Eastwood ... ;)
 
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Gant on January 04, 2004, 03:59:57 AM

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on January 06, 2004, 10:18:36 PM
Doesn't anyone want to play anymore?

Yvonne De Carlo was in Hostile Guns (1967) with John Russell, who was in three Eastwood films, most memorably as Stockburn in Pale Rider, and Roy Jensen, who was in SIX Eastwood films ... Paint Your Wagon, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, The Gauntlet, Every Which Way But Loose, Any Which Way You Can, and Honkytonk Man.

I have a feeling there's a more obvious link, but I didn't find it right away.

I should let D'Amb do this one, but, oh well ... It'd be nice if I could find a link in the Bogart starring vehicle The Enforcer (1951) ... or in The African Queen ... but I don't see one. But what about The Caine Mutiny (1954)? Starring Bogie as Lt. Cmdr. Philip Francis Queeg, and featuring no fewer than three future Eastwood co-stars: Tom Tully (Coogan's Bluff), E.G.

In film Call Northside 777(`48)Stewart was with Lee J.Cobb(Coogan),E.G.Marshall(Absolute)and John McIntire(Honky Tonk).
Anyway Cary Grant was in Stanley Done`s Charade(`63)with George Kennedy(The Eiger Sanction,Thunderbolt and Lightfood).

For the next one, how about another woman who was famous for her relationship with a powerful man ... Marion Davies?

This may be difficult. If there is a "traditional" one- stepper, I didn't find it. (There are plenty of two-steppers). What I found was a one-step connection via an actor who worked on a number of Eastwood films ... but not as an actor.  ??? ;)

If anyone can do better ... be my guest!    :)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on January 25, 2004, 07:27:50 PM

You are of course correct! Riesner also helped out on several other Eastwood screenplays, including The Outlaw Josey Wales. When he played a "little boy"  in The Pilgrim starring Marion Davies, he was five years old and billed as "Dinky Riesner" (or "Reisner," if the IMDb is correct).

Heck, Hemlock, I found a one stepper in the first film I clicked on in the IMDb ... Theatre of Blood (1973), starring Vincent Price as "a Shakespearean actor [who] takes poetic revenge on the critics who denied him recognition." Among the others in the cast are Madeline, and ... yet again ... Where Eagles Dare's own Michael Hordern.

Heck.heck and heck!You`re right KC as usually.Maybe I was too tired(I`m at the nightshift)when I went through of her films :-[ :-[
By the way I have seen this Theatre Of Blood.It was quite amusing sort of a horror film.
Anyway I´ll try to be sharper next time...Anouk Aimèe...hmmm ???

There's a one-stepper ... ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on March 05, 2004, 08:06:24 PM
I found him.....

Derek's only been in one movie, a favorite of mine... Anger Management (funny part, too!). But it took a while to track down who from that film worked with Clint. Turns out that an actor by the name of Jeff Morris played the desk sergeant in The Gauntlet. I guess that would be the fellow who tried to pull one over on Shockley by saying he didn't have a guy by the name of Gus Malley at the jail.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on March 05, 2004, 08:15:43 PM
I'll be darned, Matt! So there were TWO guys in a movie with Derek who had also been in a movie with Clint!

Don't you know who the other one is?

(By the way, Jeff Morris was in another Eastwood movie, too! ;) )
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on March 05, 2004, 08:17:07 PM
Oh geez.... I have to go back to the cast list again.... okay, lemme look around some more.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on March 05, 2004, 08:27:41 PM
I found the other one! Also in Anger Management was Nils Allen Stewart who played the not-so-tiny "Tiny" the bouncer in Space Cowboys. Actually, he had the same name in both roles... "Tiny".

And I see that Jeff Morris was also in Kelly's Heroes as "Cowboy". Once I saw he was in The Gauntlet, I stopped searching his IMDb page. :-\

I'll be back with the next one in a few minutes.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

They can laugh all they want.... so long as they both get some hits on Sunday when I see them play.  Otherwise...  someone else might be needing some anger management besides Roger Clemens.  ;)

I looked through the remainder of the cast, and there wasn't a fourth. Too bad for me... I was actually starting to come up with some good ideas for rewards.  :D

Okay, now I suppose I can finally go about finding a new one to post.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

Or maybe ... Weathers and Richard Kiel (Pale Rider) in Happy Gilmore?  ???
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on March 05, 2004, 09:25:03 PM
I'd done Richard Kiel before.... but YES... FINALLY!!!! I was looking for Thayer David from Rocky.  I saw him in that and didn't recognize him but I recognized his voice immediately. I've been really trying to get someone to find that connection. Thought I might have to actually offer up Butkus Stallone next time I was up if I'd have any luck.  ;)

Great answer, Gino M!

I note that Jo Ann Harris, who played the minx, Carol, in The Beguiled, was also in American Hot Wax.

By the way ...  I'll bet the connection Gant was looking for was High School Confidential (1957) ... featuring Jerry Lee Lewis as "himself" and William Smith from Every Which Way but Loose!  ;)

OK, if you don't want to count Joseph Andrews (1977), which featured Jim and Michael Hordern, how about The Iron Maiden (1962), which had Jim and Alan Hale Jr. (Hang 'Em High)?

Wonder what happened to Dale after the 70s, he has almost no film credits since then?  ??? I don't usually count made for TV films, but I can't help noting that his two most recent efforts feature Eastwood co-stars, namely The American Clock (1993) with Felton Perry (Magnum Force) and Loren Dean (Space Cowboys), and The Hunchback (1997) (yes, based on Victor Hugo) with Richard Harris (Unforgiven) and a bunch of Hungarians.

Speaking of Hungarians ... how about Bela Lugosi?

Have we done John Candy???

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on March 27, 2004, 09:09:51 PM
I might point out that Canadian Bacon (1995), Candy's very last film, featured Rip Torn (City Heat) ... but that would be like taking Candy from a baby! ;) Even more so were I to mention J.F.K. (1991), which featured, at the very top of its cast list longer than the list of suspected conspirators in JFK's assassination, all of the following: Kevin Costner (A Perfect World), Kevin Bacon (directed by Clint in Mystic River) and Tommy Lee Jones (Space Cowboys).

So let me reach all the way back to 1987's Planes, Trains & Automobiles. Besides the aforementioned Bacon (who doesn't really count, even if he did inspire this entire thread, because he's never acted WITH Clint, only FOR him), the cast list included no fewer than two future players in True Crime: Laila Robins, who played Clint's character's adulterous squeeze "Patricia Findley," and Michael McKean, who played the odious prison chaplain, "Reverend Shillerman."

Will that do?  :)

Never heard of Arthur Lucan, but as Gant intimates, he evidently starred as "Old Mother Riley" in a long series of gender benders. Indeed,  if the IMDb is correct, he never played another role on the big screen.

In the last of these, Mother Riley Meets the Vampire (1952), one of the featured actors was David Hurst ... of Kelly's Heroes fame. ;)

The IMDb tells us that this film was also known under a few other titles, to wit:
... the last two being proposed titles. Our old friend Bela Lugosi also makes an appearance in this one.

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: mgk on April 23, 2004, 11:34:38 AM
bigdai -

If I understand you correctly, you're making a connection from Roman Polanski through John Huston, the director of The Unforgiven.  If that is indeed what you are doing, The Unforgiven is not a connection to Eastwood.  

Eastwood directed Unforgiven which is a different movie than The Unforgiven which was directed by John Huston.

If I didn't understand you correctly, please let me know.

Thanks.

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: bigdai on April 23, 2004, 12:15:14 PM
MGK I think we are on different wave lengths.

I obviously realise that they are completely and utterly different films (being a 40 year time difference and having different directors to name but two differences) hence the stress in my post on THE in John Huston's THE Unforgiven.  I was making the link that Huston's film was very similar in title, though as I said not exactly the same as Clint's Unforgiven, without a THE.

If the association does not qualify then that is cool, it was a bit of a guess. However I am wise enough and long enough in the tooth to know that they are different films.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: mgk on April 23, 2004, 12:20:01 PM
No problem, bigdai -  I think we're on the same page now.  Didn't mean to iimply that you don't know your films.   :-X

Anyway, let's both go see if we can find a more direct link.  :D
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Gant on April 23, 2004, 12:20:27 PM
Hi bigdai..may I interject   :)

The link has to be via actors/actresses who have worked with both Eastwood and the person named in the last post..
not composers or directers of similar sounding movies.

ie.... Shirley Stoller was in The Deer Hunter along with Meryl who starred with Clint in Bridges...

So you are looking for an actor who has appeared alongside Roman Polanski and Clint....

I think that makes sense......... ;D  hope so   :)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: bigdai on April 23, 2004, 01:37:02 PM
No worries Gant. :)  I wasn't sure of the rules.  I'll think on it, but doubt i'll get it. I'm not a big Polanski fan.

Hang on....  Jack Nicolson in Chinatown was also in Cuckoo's Nest which had Scatman Crothers from Bronco Billy.  Also in Cuckoo's Nest was the big Indian guy who was in Josey Wales (I can't remember his name unfortunately).

Either of those any good?
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: bigdai on April 23, 2004, 01:38:51 PM
Just realised I got it wrong again.  Polanski directed Chinatown but didn't appear in it as far as I know.  Back to the drawing board and beer ???
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: mgk on April 23, 2004, 01:43:20 PM
bigdai -

You've been on track all day with Chinatown.  Roman Polanski does direct Chnatown but also has a small part as the "man with the knife" and another actor in the film was in an Eastwood film.  Perry Lopez (Hmmm...??) was in Chinatown as Lt. Lou Escobar and was in Kelly's Heroes with Eastwood and played the part of Pvt. Petuko.

Let's go with the one you posted up above.......

Michael Gambon

and it's your call, bigdai.  :D

Back on John Huston ... You might also say that John Huston was the model for the character Clint played in White Hunter, Black Heart ... and that he was the father of Anjelica Huston (Blood Work) ... ;)

... but, as Gant pointed out, in this game, we do usually try to make the connection via an actor.  I made an exception a few pages back when I used a person who had been both an actor (without Clint) and a writer (with Clint), but I mentioned beforehand that I was "breaking the rule."

Actually, on an off-topic note, (just for a change!) the main poster in the film is of Raquel Welch...although I think there probably is a poster of Rita initially.

Oh, we aren't allowed pre-stardom Clint films? Who said that? No one told me!  :-[ Why aren't we allowed..? It's not like it was an uncredited performance or anything...anyway, surely Clint was a star from the moment he went into acting!  ;D  ;)

I haven't watched tv much recently so I don't think I'll get the reference...I'll work on it though, how's that?!

Rounders...hehe! You mean baseball...as I told Matt the other day, rounders is the closest we get to baseball, although it's really a kids' game, isn't it?

Well I didn't realise about Leno being in Space Cowboys... obviously that wasn't my link...I didn't see it credited anywhere, I must have missed that one.

Ok, if someone else wants to post the next one then...KC? I'll post my link even though you think it wasn't legit ;) I would never want to do anything...illegal ;)

Did you see Space Cowboys, Allycat? It's hard to forget about that Tonight Show scene.  ;)

Since Jay Leno actually was in Americathon with Chief Dan George from The Outlaw Josey Wales, tmw3nyc won fair and square. If we had to wait in this game till someone gets "the link" that the poster had in mind, we might wait a long time. I think about 80-90% of the answers to mine have been other links than the one I had in mind.

I like your segue from the Elephant Man to the King of the Apes, Hemlock!

Besides the Tarzan flicks for which he is probably best known in the U.S., Barker starred in a series of Euro-Westerns based on the novelistic output of the 19th century German pulp bard Karl May. In two of those, namely the original Winnetou (1963) and Winnetou und das Halbblut Apanatschi (Winnetou and the Half-Breed Apanatschi, 1966), one of his co-stars was Walter Barnes (High Plains Drifter, Bronco Billy). In another film in the series, Winnetou, Part 2 (1964), our friend the Hunchback from For a Few Dollars More, Klaus Kinski, makes an appearance.

That was my exact Bacall link ally.... ;D

I remember Piper Laurie in the Hustler and thought she was fabulous... That was quite a career break afterwards wasn't it..... :o

I got her in a movie called The Crossing Guard along with Anjelica Huston who was in Bloodwork. ;)

Actually, at the beginning of this thread, Holden says that in the previous incarnation of this game, films where Clint directs but doesn't act were allowed:

Quote
for purposes of this game in earlier incarnations on this board, we had been including Clint's credits as director but not actor (Bird, Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil, Breezy and the upcoming Mystic River).

So are they not in this version?

Anyway...just saying ;)

It wasn't the one I had in mind, Gant, but it'll do just as well ... who would have thought Toshirô and Clint were connected by at least two actors who appeared in films with 'em!
I´ll bet KC that you were thinkig of John Boorman`s Hell In The Pacific(`68)where Mifune was with Lee Marvin who`s dear old friend of Pardner ::)

Actually, that's not the one I was thinking of, either. It was Spielberg's 1941 (1979), and when I look closer at the cast, I note that it featured no fewer than three Eastwoodites, but pretty minor ones ... namely Dub Taylor (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot), Michael McKean (True Crime) and Jerry Hardin (Honkytonk Man). So, I guess Gant's and yours are better, since they're better-known costars of Clint's ...  8)

Hey Gino, I think you know what I mean ;) if you start from a Julie Newmar film in which she doesn't just make a guest appearance, and then link it to Clint...I know I don't set the rules, but I suddenly realised after posting this one that, unless I said that, you would get it in an instant! ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on May 13, 2004, 12:00:32 PM
Well...either it's too hard now, or everyone's lost interest!

I guess if it's difficult, it interrupts the flow of the game. Anyway, if it is, then feel free to go with an easier one - I was just trying to make things more interesting! ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Gino M on May 13, 2004, 03:38:28 PM
Actually Allycat.. this was a very good one.

Well.. I've got an answer.. but I wanted to search a bit more just to make sure that I had all of my bases covered.

But so far.. this is all that I could come up with.
 Julie Newmar (not playing herself) and Bruce Dern were in a  movie called "If... Dog... Rabbit", Dern was in a documentary movie called "A Decade Under the Influence."  In this documentary movie, Clint and Bruce played themselves.  (That was why I asked if Clint played himself. :))

I just realized how few movies Julie Newmar did where she didnt' play herself.

Ok.. Allycat... break it to me gently if I'm wrong. :D :D :D

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on May 13, 2004, 04:05:46 PM
That wasn't the link...but yours will do just fine, Gino! I think you put even more effort into that one that I did with mine! Mine was via the 1985 film Reel Horror. Julie starred with Catherine Bach in that one, and Bach starred as Melody, the girl Lightfoot hooks up with, in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. Actually, when I was referring to not using Julie's guest appearances, I just meant the ones listed as 'Herself - filmography' on the IMDB - in fact, there was only one actual film under that. But I guess I made it pretty confusing!

So...you're up. I think someone else will have to get your next one though, as I'm off to bed ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 13, 2004, 04:38:37 PM
Actually, Clint and Bruce appeared together, NOT playing themselves, in a little number called Hang 'Em High ... so you can make the link from Julie to Clint via Bruce in one step and you don't have to use any movies where anybody played himself! Er herself! Er, you know what I mean! ;)

Ok...here's the first link - I think we should be allowed any Clint film, so on that basis, there's this link:

Vincent was in Hot Rod Gang (1958) with Lester Dorr, who starred with Clint in First Traveling Saleslady.

But if you don't want to go with that, then there's this link: Dub Taylor also starred in Hot Rod Gang with Vincent, and appeared in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (yay! Another connection) as the Station Attendant.

Howzat? Double the fun! ;)

The easy link is O. J. Simpson and George Kennedy was in the first Naked Gun movie.  Kennedy was in The Eiger Santion with Clint.

Next one could be O. J. Simpson and Todd Brant was in Back to the Beach.  Bryant was in Blood Work with Clint.

I might be very close to the exact link you have in mind, but you gave a very good hint.

Sterling Hayden was in Kubrick's The Killing with James Edwards from Coogan's Bluff.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 15, 2004, 07:02:37 AM
Would that be the baroque Nick Ray cult Western, Johnny Guitar (http://members.aol.com/michaemann/jgmain.html) (1954), in which Sterling played the title role (Johnny, not the guitar) opposite Joan Crawford as the tough, pistol-packing, pants-wearing saloon owner with the shady past, Vienna? If so, your link could be Royal Dano, "Ten Spot" in (The Outlaw Josey Wales) ... or further down the cast list, we find Dennis Hopper (Hang 'Em High), uncredited.

Johnny: How many men have you forgotten?
Vienna: As many women as you've remembered.

I found that Peter Boyle appeared in a film called Hammett (1982), with Jack Nance, (who was fantastic in Eraserhead and the Twin Peaks series). Nance also starred in City Heat.

Next, I choose the German actress and singer Nico, who also sang with one of my favourite bands, The Velvet Underground.

Nico is a snap, as she appeared (uncredited) in the notorious The Sandpiper with Richard (Where Eagles Dare) Burton.

She was also in something called Les hautes solitudes with Jean (Paint Your Wagon) Seberg. This item may have the funniest summary yet on the IMDb ...

Well done Gant! That wasn't even my link...mine was via Richard Devon, who starred in both The Badlanders with Alan Ladd, and Magnum Force with Clint.

I can't believe how long this took...but I found that George Chandler starred with June Vincent in The WAC from Walla, Walla (1952) and also appeared in Every Which Way But Loose as the Clerk at the DMV. If this isn't your link, I don't know what is!

I once got an opportunity to see this film but I chose Richard Gere film Breathless instead :-[.Believe I´m still kicking myself.I would very much like to see The Killers.Sounds like a cool film.

Next Matthew McConaughey ???

OOOoooooops, I meant Hemlock! Sorry, I posted in haste this AM.  :-[
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Hemlock on May 18, 2004, 06:46:47 PM
The Ava Gardner link that I had in mind was The Cassandra Crossing.Richard Harris(Unforgiven)was in it too.
It`s quite a horrible film.

Could we possibly just forget Michael Hordern ever existed.. >:(  Well done ally, not my link but just as good...drinks on me. ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Gant on May 18, 2004, 11:08:50 PM
Matthew was in Amistad along with Morgan (Unforgiven) Freeman... :)

Next up..... Gina Lollobrigida
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 18, 2004, 11:16:38 PM
Gant, you just beat me with Matthew, I had another one for him. Oh well ... Gina Lollobrigida was in Bad Man's River (1971) with Lee "Mortimer," "Angel Eyes" Van Cleef and the legendary Aldo Sambrell (small parts in all three "Dollars" films).

Next: Elliott Gould.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on May 19, 2004, 05:54:24 AM
I suppose I should've worked harder for this KC, but I went for the obvious connection! Elliott Gould starred in MASH (1970) with Donald Sutherland, Clint's co-star in Space Cowboys and Kelly's Heroes. Of course, Robert Duvall, also in MASH, appeared in Joe Kidd.

(Appropriately for this game, Donald Sutherland appeared in a film called Six Degrees of Separation (1993).)

On the theme of doubles...I'll have a martini x2 Gant! ;D

Stand by...another actor on the way...

Ok, how about an actor sadly not quite as famous as his brothers...Stephen Baldwin. Check out that hilarious and slightly disturbing pic on the IMDB! ;D
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 19, 2004, 06:14:37 AM
Stephen was in Friends & Lovers (1999) with none other than Alison (Bronco Billy, Tightrope, Absolute Power, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) Eastwood.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 19, 2004, 06:22:27 AM
I hope it was OK for me to use the obvious link there, Ally ...

Ginger Rogers, of course, was IN a film with Clint, namely The First Traveling Saleslady. But since we've agreed not to count those "incunabula" in this game ... I'll propose her as the next challenge.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on May 19, 2004, 10:02:06 AM
Yeah, that was fine, KC! It wasn't the link I had chosen, anyway...I went via Lara Flynn Boyle who appeared in The Rookie...

Back to Ginger...who starred in The Confession (1964) with David Hurst of Kelly's Heroes...

Driscoll appeared in The Happy Time with Gene Collins who appeared in Kelly's Heroes.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on May 19, 2004, 01:50:34 PM

Well, I got your exact link, I think I should get brownie points for that! ;) And green paint...I think I have to explain here that for some reason, as forfeit, you want me to dress up as the green belly-dancing woman in the Star Trek original series credits - which won't be happening, I hasten to add  ::)

Wow, this moves along fast ...  :o

Another quick link for Karen Black on the previous page (just because I remember it from my Hitchcock days): She was in Hitch's last flick, Family Plot (1976) with Bruce Dern (Hang 'Em High), William Devane (Space Cowboys) and William Prince (The Gauntlet, Bronco Billy).

As for Jason Priestley, somehow I think you have a better one in mind, but I found him in Hacks (1997) with Matt Clark, who was in The Beguiled, The Outlaw Josey Wales and Honkytonk Man.

I didn't know Randall had passed on... :(  I liked him in the Odd Couple..

Yay Gant, an excellent choice!

Dave was in Nicolas Roeg's weird but wonderful The Man Who Fell To Earth (1976), with Rip Torn, who appeared in City Heat.

KC, there was a more obvious one for Jason Priestley ;) He appeared in Eye of the Beholder (1999) with Genevieve Bujold, star of one of my faves, Tightrope.

William Hartnell was in the Peter Sellers vehicle The Mouse That Roared with Jean Seberg (Paint Your Wagon). I note that the director was  Jack Arnold ... who helmed two early Eastwood films, Revenge of the Creature and Tarantula. Don't know if Ally thinks that's interesting ... but I do. ;)

I hope Matt sent you Game Seven of last year's American League Championship Series, Ally! That was the best baseball game EVER!  ;D

Today's game ... on the other hand ...  >:( >:( >:(

I found a Hardy-Dub Taylor (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot) connection, Gant ... they were in Capra's Riding High (1950) ... don't like to count that one though, as it says Hardy is "uncredited" as a "Horse player" and that sounds a bit dubious to me.

Post by: allycat on May 22, 2004, 04:18:03 PM
No, KC, Matt sent me a couple of games from a couple of weeks ago - when the Yankees won a few games in a row after their bad patch. I'm finding American rounders pretty interesting! ;)

Well, I've got to head to bed earlier for once, so maybe we should go with your connection, KC - I've run out of time and patience  :'( I guess this time Gant gets the drinks bought for him!

There were just too many films...and not enough time :)

Clarke Gable was in Gone with the wind with Vivien Leigh who was in Streetcar named Desire with Brando who was in the Score with DeNiro who was in Once Upon a time directed by Sergio Leone, who directed Clint in Fistful, Few Dollars More, and GBU.  5 degrees...   ::)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on May 23, 2004, 03:27:37 PM
Thanks Chessie, but we usually have to find a connection in as few steps as possible (look at earlier posts for examples). Also, preferably it has to be via an actor who's starred with Clint in one of his films. Call us weird, but that's just the version we play ;) Also, as KC has stated earlier, we don't include Clint's films from before he was famous (I think we did in an earlier version of this game, but not this one!) - so, as a link you can go via any actor in any film Clint's starred in from A Fistful of Dollars onwards, basically...

Hope I didn't make it too confusing for you! ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 23, 2004, 04:42:57 PM
Well, we used The Misfits (Eli Wallach, Tuco in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) yesterday for Monroe, and Gable was in that one too, so ...  ;)

A new one you ask for... hmmm...  Sean Connery... Hopefully you haven't done him allready...   ::)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Gant on May 24, 2004, 04:37:12 AM
Connery was part of that great cast in the late 50's English flick Hell Drivers along with Patrick (No. 6  ;) ) McGoohan who was in Escape From Alcatraz.....

Rae Dawn Chong


and one extra plastic peanut for anyone who can tell me where the word alcatraz comes from and it's original meaning.... ;D
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on May 24, 2004, 05:35:45 AM
I'm sure KC will find a better link for this, but seeing as I found this one in about 30 seconds flat, I wanted to post it and be rather smug about it ;) ;D

Chong appeared in The Color Purple with Margaret Avery who was a prostitute in Magnum Force.

Oh and I confess to having some help here (thank you, Mr. Internet ;)) but I hope this is what you're after, Gant, regarding Alcatraz!

Quote
The name Alcatraz is derived from the Spanish "Alcatraces." In 1775, the Spanish explorer Juan Manuel de Ayala was the first to sail into what is now known as San Francisco Bay - his expedition mapped the bay, and named one of the three islands Alcatraces; over time, the name was Anglicized to Alcatraz. While the exact meaning is still debated, Alcatraz is usually defined as meaning "pelican" or "strange bird."

You must be hard up, too, Mr Gant, if you can't afford real peanuts! ;) But I will take the plastic one :D

Ok, seeing as we're offering incentives now, a Cadburys chocolate bar (a speciality of my city) to the first person to get the next link. And if my American pals want to know how good they taste, ask Matt the moderator, as he has sampled their delights! Lucky, lucky man...

I leave you with foxy Ms. Pam Grier...

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 24, 2004, 06:23:34 AM
Pam Grier was in Friday Foster (1975) with Scatman Crowthers (Bronco Billy) ... or if you prefer to re-use Margaret Avery, she was in Cool Breeze (1972)with Pam. ;)

I'll take TWO Cadbury bars, please ...  ;D

Ok, I probably haven't succeeded, but how about tragic star Carole Lombard? The good ones always die young...
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 24, 2004, 10:19:08 PM
The lovely Lombard was in In Name Only (1939) with Alan Baxter, who played Fenty in Paint Your Wagon.

OK, we had Oliver Hardy ... what about Stan Laurel?

I didn't think I would get this one so quickly! ;D

The beautiful Jimmy Dean appeared in East of Eden with Richard Davalos who was in Kelly's Heroes as Private Gutowski. Interestingly, Davalos did actually appear with Dennis Hopper in Cool Hand Luke...

Next up, have fun finding a link for Ellen Burstyn.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 25, 2004, 05:50:37 AM
I had a non-Worden link in mind, Gant, but that'll do ... what do you have against Giant? ;)

Ally ... Ellen Burstyn was in The Exorcist with Lee J. Cobb (Coogan's Bluff).

Got her..... :) Hildegard was in Diplomatic Courier along with Paint Your Wagons Lee Marvin. She was also in Decision Before Dawn which was co written by Peter Viertel  ;D

I'll just pat myself on the back for that... ;)

Right, even tho' I've never watched a Star Wars film.. I still know who R2 D2 is..... so lets see you link him.. ;D

            Kenny Baker
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on May 25, 2004, 11:38:55 AM
I tried to find a link another way as I didn't want to find one via one of my least favourite films, but eventually had to succumb via the travesty that is The Phantom Menace. Kenny was in this, playing his usual role, with Liam Neeson who starred in The Dead Pool.

And Kenny was born in Birmingham in England, same as me ;D

What an illustrious film career - not only has he starred in all of the Star Wars films (Gant, you have to watch Episodes IV and V at least!), but he also starred in Boobs in the Wood as Bruce Foreskin  :-X Sorry, I just thought that was funny!

Find a link for Vera Miles, who had a small part in Psycho and was so nearly the star of Vertigo...
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Gant on May 25, 2004, 02:46:32 PM
I got Vera in Twilights Last Gleaming along with our old pal and ace baddie William Smith from Any Which Way You Can.... ;D

Right.. gloves off time/Men from the boys/Hardball....

Kenny Baker...Again tho' this time without Neeson......  :o ;D ;D ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 25, 2004, 03:24:38 PM

Damn, I was looking so hard for that one I missed it...I just went through all the actors in that film!  ::)

I think we've separated the women from the men on this one, Gant...I'm not sure you should be allowed to post the same one twice...that's the second time you've done it! ;) ;) Next time I get to bend the rules ;D
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Adam S. on May 25, 2004, 04:37:56 PM
Try to connect Peter Doyle to Clint.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 25, 2004, 05:15:26 PM
Adam, the rule is, you have to get one before you can post one. I got the last one, so I'me entitled to post the next one, which I'll do shortly. But ... since you asked, which Peter Doyle? There are six listed in the IMDb, and two are actors, but one only does voices and the other has only one credit for a TV production called "The Eurovision Song Contest." If you mean one of the Doyles with technical credits, you should say so, but in this game, we usually use actors.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on May 25, 2004, 05:51:24 PM
OK, I have a new one ... in keeping with the "Mozart" theme (from Amadeus): Hans Holt, who played Mozart in The Mozart Story (1948). Have fun!
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

Have we had English actor Roddy McDowell before? Well, here he is, anyway! He made a lot of films, but none of them with Clint. And I don't know if this makes any difference...but make the connection without using any 'Ape' films ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Gant on May 27, 2004, 12:16:55 PM
Gant is back bigger and better than ever  ;)

Easy peasy...... McDowell was all upside down in The Poseiden Adventure along with Unforgivens/Absolute Power's Gene Hackman. I saw this one at the cinema with my Ma.... ;D

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

Chessie, it's a semi-official rule in this game to find a SINGLE link between the proposed actor and Clint. Like this: Stephen Fry was in A Handful of Dust (1988) with Anjelica Huston (Blood Work).

But ... go ahead, post the next one.  8)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

P.S. Well done for finding one for Thora so soon - dammit, I thought I'd posted a stinker!
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on June 03, 2004, 08:54:39 PM
This was Christopher's answer for Gish, when Ally posted her ...

Lillian Gish was in The Comedians with Richard Burton from Where Eagles Dare.

The one that occurs to me when I see the name "Lillian Gish" is The Whales of August (1987). Besides old timey scenery chewers Lillian Gish, Bette Davis and Vincent Price, the film featured North Dakota native Ann Sothern and her daughter, Tisha Sterling (Coogan's Bluff).

You guys are getting forgetful in your old age ... Lex Barker was used by Hemlock a few pages back and I answered that time and if I do say so myself, my answer was a tad more clever than Gant's ... ;)

Besides the Tarzan flicks for which he is probably best known in the U.S., Barker starred in a series of Euro-Westerns based on the novelistic output of the 19th century German pulp bard Karl May. In two of those, namely the original Winnetou (1963) and Winnetou und das Halbblut Apanatschi (Winnetou and the Half-Breed Apanatschi, 1966), one of his co-stars was Walter Barnes (High Plains Drifter, Bronco Billy). In another film in the series, Winnetou, Part 2 (1964), our friend the Hunchback from For a Few Dollars More, Klaus Kinski, makes an appearance.

Yes, Gant, Saxon was the link I had in mind for Dorothy Gish. Sorry to disappoint you!

Yeah I know KC!  :-[ I realised as soon as I'd posted Lex Barker that we'd used him before, but I didn't think anyone would mind if we used him again! And Gant's used people more than once, so I thought it was my turn to engage in a little rule-bending ;)

Weller was in what some thought to be (some still do) an unfilmable novel.. The Naked Lunch along with Absolute Power's Judy Davis.

Well, I can't type in Russian I'm afraid, (especially as this keyboard doesn't support all the relevant squiggles and symbols) so will French do instead? Only it's been 7 years since I last studied it so to say I'm rusty is an understatement...

Billy Walker apparaît dans le film Up Pompeii avec Michael Hordern qui jouait le role de Admiral Rolland en Where Eagles Dare.

You didn't seriously mean to use Michael Hordern again did you?! Je ne le crois pas!

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on June 09, 2004, 05:52:29 AM
Well, if no one else is going to answer this one ...

The easiest one is via Illing's last picture, A Man Could Get Killed (1966). That co-starred James Garner (Space Cowboys). Or you could use The Wreck of the Mary Deare (1959), which co-starred Richard Harris (Unforgiven). I suppose both of those are too easy for Ally, but at least I didn't stoop to Hordern. ;)

How about Swiss-German old timey star (and Clint's contemporary, b. Sept. 8, 1930) ... Mario Adorf?

Thaw was in the film Sweeney 2 (1978) with Nigel Hawthorne, who was in Firefox.

I originally posted Rock Hudson as the next one but then realised he did star with Clint even though it was in the film Never Say Goodbye, before Clint made it big. So, just in case, I'll post William Campbell (I) instead, though it's probably easy to make a link for him :)

Anyway, she was "Haggard's Maid" in something called The Gypsy and the Gentleman (Joseph Losey, 1958). Also appearing in that was Patrick McGoohan (Escape from Alcatraz).

Heyyy...there's a Michael Hordern connection! ;D

Good ol' Arthur was in Theatre of Blood (1973) with Mike from Where Eagles Dare.

Guess KC didn't like Ellen Pollock...she may not have been a big star but doesn't mean she didn't shine as brightly ;) Plus it's harder to find difficult links for more 'famous' people :) I never got around to looking up Ruth Roman...

Started by Brendan, Message by scootyes89
hugh jackman was in kAte and Leopold with Bradley Whitford..who appeared in "a perferct world"

So - do you want to pose another one, or...? ;D

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: bigdai on June 21, 2004, 06:57:23 AM
Come on you lot.  It's not that hard there are thousands if not hundreds of thousands of links out there.  If your getting really stuck why not do chain links so you have to go through two actors instead of one to get to Clint.  Or get to an altogether different actor using Clint as a middle chain link. Lets have some imagination. ;)
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on June 21, 2004, 11:38:41 AM
Sheesh, bigdai! ;)

I do usually try and find more complicated links for Clint, often going through at least two different actors, but then someone comes along and finds just one link for them  ::) So, it's not for want of trying!

Hugh Jackman was in Someone Like You with Ashley Judd, who was in Eye of the Beholder with Genevieve Bujold of Tightrope. That's a more long-winded one for you.

If someone else wants to do a one-link connection, then go ahead...it's time for the footie now so I have to go :)

BaselineFT’s Artists Database encompasses credits for over 1.5 million above-the-line and below-the-line film and television professionals.  These credits date back to the 1950s and beyond, and are regarded throughout the entertainment industry as the most thorough and accurate Film and TV credit archive in existence

Gary Oldman

I don't know if we've done him before but who cares.
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: Matt on July 14, 2004, 04:13:18 AM
There's probably a lot of connections with Gary Oldham, but I'm going with JFK because I knew that one without looking it up (and it's very rare I can solve one of these without searching).

Gary Oldham was Lee Harvey Oswald in JFK, along with several other Eastwood co-stars, most notably Kevin Costner of A Perfect World. Two "Space Cowboys" also co-starred... Tommy Lee Jones, who gave a memorable performance as Clay Shaw and Donald Sutherland as "X" (And of course Sutherland was also in Kelly's Heroes.)

Kevin Bacon of Mystic River was also in JFK... but since he never actually appeared on screen with Clint, I guess the original "Degrees of Separation" man doesn't count here.

Next...

Bill Murray
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on July 14, 2004, 05:45:33 AM
Matt, dear, I think you meant Gary Oldman. But we'll let you off considering you don't often play this game ;D

The wonderful Mr Murray was in Wild Things with Carrie Snodgress who was of course in Pale Rider with Clint. Kevin Bacon was also in that film.

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: allycat on July 27, 2004, 05:52:53 AM
Actually, I have a shocking confession to make...  :o

This is the first time I've selected somebody without checking out the connection first, (other people do it, but I never normally do!) but I figured that as she's been in a Hitchcock film, we can usually make the connection from there. Put it down to my own laziness! Of course, this would have to be the one time that nobody can get it and needs a clue!  ::)

In that case, if it really is too hard, I'll try and find a one-stepper myself and give you all a clue, and if I can't, then two-steppers will do!

Title: Re:Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on August 16, 2004, 07:30:27 PM
I have a few one-steppers, but they're to actors who were in Clint's early films, which we don't usually count in these games. Maybe we should make an exception in this case, since no one has come up with a "legitimate" one stepper in all this time.

Madeleine Carroll was in An Innocent Affair (1948) with Bess Flowers, who was in The First Traveling Saleslady (she's uncredited in both films). Better, Carroll was in My Favorite Blonde (1942) with Charles Cane, who was in Revenge of the Creature, Erville Alderson, who was in Francis in the Navy, and Edgar Dearing, who was in Tarantula. All three actors are credited in My Favorite Blonde, though only Cane is credited (as Police Captain) in the relevant Eastwood film ... which in that case is more than you can say for Clint!  :o

I wonder if that would satisfy Ally?  ???
Title: Re:Degrees of Separation

Your answer is correct, blonde, but in this game we like to try to connect the actor to Clint in one step, if possible ... like this: Paul Reubens was in Batman Returns (1992) with Pat Hingle, who was in three Eastwood films (Hang 'Em High, The Gauntlet, and Sudden Impact).

But that was very good for your first try.  ;)

I see I've missed several rounds in this game, but just for the record: We like to try to play this one without using Clint's "early" films in which he didn't have a starring or co-starring role. You could have used Cyclone Fury ... Starrett was in that with Merle Travis ... who was in Honkytonk Man.

Reems was in The Cartier Affair (1984) with Telly Savalas, who was in Kelly's Heroes. It was made for television, and so shouldn't really be used here either.

I would prefer it if we could avoid using actors who perforned mainly in the "adult" genre. There are some quite young children who post here, you know.

A fast check of his credits in the IMDb reminds me that he was also in the Eastwood-produced The Stars Fell on Henrietta (1995), starring the same Duvall ... and Frances Fisher (Pink Cadillac, Unforgiven, True Crime), and baby Franny Fisher-Eastwood (also seen in True Crime).

Majel Barrett



Barret was in The Dominoe Principle(`77)with Gene Hackman(Unforgiven,Absolute Power)and Eli Wallach(GBU).

Next:one of the greatest actor of our time: JET LI :)

By the way I got this Dominoe Principle on DVD and was surprised how dull film it is.Considering that the film got talents like Stanley Kramer(the director),Hackman,Wallach,Richard Widmark and so on ???Maybe I just don`t get this paranoia theme that was going on in the 70`s ???

Well to be honest I bought the DVD just because it was cheap and it got Gene Hackman and the finnish title was Viikatemiehet which means loosely translated The Reaper Men ;D

Another btw Cromwell was also in Pink Cadillac with Eastwood.

So..JET LI ???

Lin, this is supposed to be a game like the others: Someone posts a name and someone else "solves" that one, and then posts a new one. So, you should "solve" the one Gant posted, Jerry Lee Lewis, before posting a new one ... and then you just post the name, Kevin Bacon. Leave it to the next player to find out the answer.

Also, we're just counting the films Clint acted in in this thread. So, if you posted "Kevin Bacon," someone could answer "Bacon was in The River Wild with Meryl Streep who was in The Bridges of Madison County  with Clint." But Mystic River doesn't "count."

As Gant mentioned, we don't usually count Eastwood's (or other actors') appearances in documentaries in this game.  Also, Bergman (who died in 1982) wasn't really "in" the documentary Theremin (1994), and neither was Gregory Peck.  We don't usually count archival clips of actors and actresses. According to the IMDb, in Theremin, both Bergman and Peck are seen in a clip from Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945), in which the two co-starred. So, if you were going to use Peck, you should have gone directly to Spellbound.  However, since you can't use Peck's appearance in Wild Bill: Hollywood Maverick either ... this really wasn't the best of answers.  (http://forums.nyyfans.com/images/smilies/new/wtf.gif) (http://forums.nyyfans.com/images/smilies/wink.gif)

So it`s Jerry Lee Lewis next,right?
Sorry Hemlock! With you and Gant practically the only "old timers" playing here ... I sometimes think a post is by one of you, when it's by the other one. (And you're both named after Eastwood characters in "spy" movies, too.) (http://forums.nyyfans.com/images/smilies/wink.gif) Thanks for finding the Yellow Rolls Royce I was looking for!

OK, this question is for Gant: Jerry Lee Lewis doesn't seem to have any actual "acting" credits, not on the IMDb anyway. Are you looking for a movie where he maybe appeared as himself ... maybe along with another singer who also appeared as himself, there and in an Eastwood movie?

Hey, very good, tmw3nyc! (What does all that stand for, anyway?  ??? ) Even better ... Jo Ann Harris (the minx, Carol, in The Beguiled) is in American Hot Wax, too.

I was thinking of Jamboree (1957), which features appearances by many singers, each as "himself," including Lewis and Fats Domino (Any Which Way You Can). But yours is better. Post another!

Post by: KC on January 09, 2005, 05:54:22 PM
I imagine there must be lots of connections for Joseph Cotten (one of my favorite old-timey actors), but here's one I found that I like ... Cotten played "Baron Otto von Kleist" in something called Gli orrori del castello di Norimberga (Mario Bava, 1972). Also appearing was Rada Rassimov ... "Maria," the "fresh young whore in the territory" in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

According to the IMDb, the film was called Baron Blood in the US, and is also known as Chamber of Tortures, The Blood Baron, The Thirst of Baron Blood and The Torture Chamber of Baron Blood  :o

New one: Cotten's co-star in one of Hitchcock's greatest films, Shadow of a Doubt ... Teresa Wright. (I know she was IN a film that Clint appeared in, Escapade in Japan (1957), but that's an "incunable" ... it doesn't count. ;)  )

Actually I`ve no idea who Casey Adams is.I just picked the name from aalmovie.com site ;D

Btw this is what they say in that site about Case Adams:

Adams was born Max Showalter, the name he used in 1949 and after 1963. Following stage and Broadway work, he began his career as a light character actor in late '40s, often appearing as a comic support, "regular-guy" buddy, and reporter or newscaster. He composed the title song and music for Vicki (1953), in which he also appeared; Adams occasionally wrote music for other films as well. — All Movie Guide

So it looks like you`re right even though that wasn`t the movie that I was thinking about.

Elvis ,Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart is used two times...if I remeber correctly.This is really long thread.


I was worried that Yves Montand has been used already so I looked this whole thread through and noticed these little things...again I got nothing better to do in my nightshift  ;D

Montand was in an excellent, existential thriller by Jean-Pierre Melville that I saw a year or so ago: Le cercle rouge. He played Jansen, an ex-police sharpshooter now far gone in alcoholism (when we first see him, he is experiencing a spectacular case of the DTs) who pulls himself together for "one last job," helping Alain Delon, as a thief just sprung from the clink, and Gian-Maria Volonté (A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, as a killer who's escaped from custody on a train, in an elaborate jewel heist scheme.

It's changing.

It got up to 57° on Saturday, with lots and lots of rain. Then it plummeted ... to 27° by Sunday morning with a bit of snow and just enough ice on the roads to make a Sunday PM run a bit of an ordeal ... then it fell to 16° or so this morning, but it rose into the 30s today and is supposed to be in the 50s again by midweek ... with lots and lots of rain.

The films include Winnetou (Part !, 1963) and Winnetou und das Halbblut Apanatschi (1966), both with Walter Barnes (Every Which Way but Loose, Bronco Billy). You'll also find him in other Westerns and adventure films of the era, in some of which German actors from A Fistful of Dollars also appear.

Hemlock, I don't think that's the same person ... according to the IMDb, the first credited role for Caroline Frances Cooke (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0177386/) was in Rose of San Juan (1913) ... assuming she was at least a teenager then, she'd have been pushing 80 by the time The Gauntlet was filmed in 1976. Son of Frankenstein (1939) is, in fact, her last credited role.

The earliest date the IMDb has a credit for Carole Cooke (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0176946/), on the other hand, is 1959 ... playing "herself" in an episode of  The Desilu Revue.

Carole Cook played the talkative waitress in The Gauntlet ... she looks to be forty-ish.

Ooops

Under The Ghost Of Frankenstein (1942) Dwyre is listed in the cast.. archive footage (uncredited) But it does not list this film in his filmography... Sorry gang.. Thats where you need to be lookin' for the one stepper.

Sorry folks...  :-[
Title: Re: Degrees of Separation
Post by: KC on March 07, 2006, 03:34:14 AM
"Archive footage" usually means the person is seen in a snippet playing in the background, like the bit of Tarantula that's on the TV in one scene in The Rookie ... though it could be in a flashback, dream sequence, etc. At any rate, the person in question did not work in the movie under discussion, so it shouldn't be counted for the purposes of this game.

Gant was looking for a Dwight Frye connection via William Smith (Any Which Way You Can), who allegedly played a "village boy" in The Ghost of Frankenstein in 1942, when he was eight. It's his second role listed in the IMDb; he wasn't credited for it. His mini-bio in the same place (supplied by one [email protected]) says, "From 1942, when he was eight, through young adulthood, Bill appeared in many movies as an extra (uncredited)."

For a Frye two-stepper, look to The Black Camel (1931), Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), or several other pictures in which Frye appeared with Bela Lugosi. As followers of Tim Burton's or Johnny Depp's career will recall (from Ed Wood) ... Lugosi was in Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space, starring Gregory Walcott (Joe Kidd, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, The Eiger Sanction, Every Which Way But Loose).

Hemlock, I don't think that's the same person ... according to the IMDb, the first credited role for Caroline Frances Cooke (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0177386/) was in Rose of San Juan (1913) ... assuming she was at least a teenager then, she'd have been pushing 80 by the time The Gauntlet was filmed in 1976. Son of Frankenstein (1939) is, in fact, her last credited role.

The earliest date the IMDb has a credit for Carole Cooke (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0176946/), on the other hand, is 1959 ... playing "herself" in an episode of  The Desilu Revue.

Hmmm Hemlock ... according to the IMDb, The American Success Company (1980) featured Bridges and someone called Belinda Bauer, but not Michelle Bauer.

Also according to the IMDb, Michelle Bauer's first screen appearance came in 1981, when she "began her film career in X-rated hardcore movies as Pia Snow, including the classic 'Cafe Flesh,' before moving into mainstream movies."  :o
Title: Re: Degrees of Separation
Post by: Richard Earl on May 13, 2006, 11:32:44 AM
I can assure everyone that the Degree of seperation is a mainstream film from the late 80's. She is one of the great scream queens of the horror genre from the 80's -90's.

OK, Richard, that made it easier. The film is Demonwarp (1988), and Michelle starred in it with George Kennedy (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, The Eiger Sanction).  :)

Post by: Clint Van Wallach on August 27, 2006, 06:38:11 PM
No Problem.

I did check page one of this thread  before I answered tgy's post and didn't see that rule about pre-Fistful films.

I think it's a good rule anyway.  Before I come up with a new first stepper why don't we let  someone answer tgy's post  correctly. I'll give it some more thought myself.

Incidentally, if anyone is interested in how Shemp Howard could possibly be connected to Clint, Shemp was in a film called 'Hellzapoppin' in 1941 that also featured Billy Curtis whom we all know as Mortcai in 'High Plains Drifter.'

You didn't really think I was going to connect Clint to a Three Stooges Short did you?

Post by: Clint Van Wallach on November 16, 2006, 05:39:13 PM
Yes, you are correct. He's listed as "Pinky" in the New York Times All Movie Guide filmography, which is the one I use for this game.

Don't reckon I'd ever call Lee "Pinky" to his face though...

Nice job. So it's Brooke Shields then?

I never heard of Steve DeForest (or Steve De Forest, as the IMDb has it). He's only been in a few films, and I never heard of any of them, either.

If stubird doesn't come back to tell us the answer by Monday, then someone post another one and we'll go on with the game. :)

I've never heard of him either,but I was able to find a link to Eastwood.Unfortunately it took two steps not one.

Steve De Forest was in something called Up Against Amanda (2001) with Daniel Roebuck who was in The Fugitive (1994) with Tommy Lee Jones from Space Cowboys.

Well, unless stubird wants to come back and point out a one-step link that we're overlooking, I guess we'll accept that one.

Have you got a new one, Kid?

The only one I've found for Gerard Butler is in P.S., I Love You which isn't due out until 2008, but stars Hilary Swank (MDB). I wasn't sure if this the connection you were thinking of KC, because it isn't actually out yet?

I found a DOS for Gerard Butler but it was with an actor who appeared in an Eastwood directed film. Will that count?
