What Do They Have in Common?

This is more "incestuous" than that.

 

They had the same wife.--Lillian was first married to Bela and then to Donlevy.

 

But you're close enough. It's yours.

I don?t know if you?ve heard it, but as a saying goes, if it was a snake, it would have bit me. But, I would have kept guessing until I got it. Thanks, anyway.

 

Next: connection between Louis Hayward, Barry Nelson, and Ralph Byrd ?

They were the first to play fictional detectives or secret agents on the screen:

 

1) Louis Hayward was the first actor to play author Leslie Charteris' Simon Templar (The Saint) in "The Saint In New York"...

 

2) Barry Nelson was the first to play Ian Fleming's James Bond in a TV adaptation of "Casino Royale" in the TV series "Climax" in 1954...

 

3) Ralph Byrd was the first actor to play Chester Gould's Dick Tracy in the Republic movie serial "Dick Tracy"...

There's something else beyond just working with James Dean that he brings out and improves some of the people he worked with...you can add Sal Mineo and Rock Hudson to that list....What is it?

When I first started on these boards almost two years ago, this question was posed and I answered exactly like finance just did. Yes, they were both born in Canada, but there is something else that is even more specific to the two of them, and it has to do with their births.
