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! ;)

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

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 ...  ;)

I don't have time to look for another one now, so Chessie, if you want to take a turn, be my guest!  :)

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.....

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...

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

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?
