Nice try, Hemlock, but there IS a one-stepper ... hint ... it goes through another musical, or actually an operetta.

And that's "Ewiger Walzer" ("The Eternal Waltz") not ... what you said. ;)

I give up!I found another two stepper but not one-stepper :(
Here it is:Thimig was in The Threepenny Opera(`31)with Vladimir Sokoloff who was in The Magnificent Seven(`60) with Eli Wallach(GBU)and he was also in Cimarron(`60)with L.Q.Jones(Hang`Em High).
I`m a bit curious to know what I have missed since I went through all the films of Hermann Thimig and couln`t found the one you are after KC.

There's another two-stepper via Die Dreigroschenoper (The Threepenny Opera) and it involves the great Lotte Lenya ... anyone?

But ... I'd really like to see someone come up with that one-stepper. Another hint: The actor I'm looking for is also Austrian, and he was in two of Clint's earliest films as a star.

Lotte Lenya from Thee Threepenny opera was in Semi-Tough(`77)with Burt Reynolds(City Heat).
So I didn`t give up after all but I still can`t find the actor you´re looking for KC...actually I`m starting to think that you made him up ;D

FINALLY!!!

Thimig and Egger were also together in no fewer than three other pictures ... the one I found first is Im weißen Rößl (1935) ... which is one of several film versions of an operetta by Ralph Benatzky known in English as The White Horse Inn ... and the other two are Die Goldene Fessel (1944) and another musical film, Eine Nacht in Venedig (1953).

Got a new one, Xichado? Make it hard this time! ;)

Richard Benedict was in Winged Victory (1944) with"Lt. McElroy" from Coogan's Bluff ... Lee J. Cobb.

He was also in Ocean's Eleven (1960) with another "star" of Coogan's Bluff ... Marjorie Bennett once again, the "little old lady charging rape."  ;)

This one shouldn't be too hard ... she didn't make very many movies. The indelible ... Tallulah Bankhead.

Got it.. ;D

She's in 1965's Fanatic with a young Donald Sutherland who was also in Kellys Heros and Space Cowboys. I've seen Fanatic and its good fun.....

This reminded me that Sutherland was interviewed on the radio here when Space Cowboys was released and he reminiced about sharing a room with Clint whilst filming Kelly's..... and they both watched the moon landings together....

The right answer plus trivia... too much.  ;)



I'll be back with a new one soon.

Victor Jory was the narrator for that treasure trove of Eastwoodites, Mackenna's Gold ... but I've already used that one in this game ...
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.

So how about taking an alternate tack? Jory was in Jigsaw (1968) with ...
  • Harry Guardino (Dirty Harry, The Enforcer, Any Which Way You Can)
  • Bradford Dillman (The Enforcer, Sudden Impact)
  • Pat Hingle (Hang 'Em High, The Gauntlet, Sudden Impact)
  • Roy Jenson (Paint Your Wagon, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, The Gauntlet, Every Which Way But Loose, Any Which Way You Can, Honkytonk Man)

New one: The Asian-American actor, James Hong.

There's actually at least one very easy one-stepper here, but I didn't see it at first ... so if anyone can find the obscure one I originally had in mind, via an actor who played a very small part in one Eastwood film ... extra points, and peanuts. ;)

I don't know about a two-stepper, but there is a one-stepper.

Rowan Atkinson starred in Bean (naturally!), with Burt Reynolds (City Heat).

Dane, do you want someone to find a two stepper for Atkinson?
