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.

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. ;)

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..

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.

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.

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

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?

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.

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.

Time for a clue, methinks.

It is a one stepper and a French actor is the link.
