Yeah, and I'm not counting the uncredited cameos he's done from time to time.

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?  ???

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)

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.

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.

Mr. Bill "Bojangles" Robinson?  :)

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

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 thereĀ“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).

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).

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"? ;)

Oops, guess we need a new one here ... how about the lovely and talented Ida Lupino ... one of the few women directors in the pre-modern era ... or any era, come to think of it. I just saw her excellent The Hitchhiker, a virtually womanless noir chiller, on TCM last night.



For this game, however, I'm looking for a one stepper using her as an actress.  8)

Are you looking for a one stepper? Because I sure can't find one ... look to be a couple of two steppers, though ...

Yes, always looking for a one-stepper. ;)

I found a one-stepper through Tarantula, but that doesn't seem to go with your clue ... and we're not using those "incunabula," right?  ???

Anyway, it's too nice a day out to ponder this much longer just now ... I'm going out! If someone else can solve it, you are welcome!  :-\

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

Whew ... great one, Xichado! I still have to go out and take the air, though, so I won't get around to posting a new one for a little while.  :D
