Thanks. This is a good game idea; I'll try to keep it going by not making my question too tough.

 

 

Next:

 

*NIGHT OF THE HUNTER*

*THE HONEYMOON KILLERS*

*KOTCH*

*ELECTRA GLIDE IN BLUE*

I think it's only movie the director made. Electra Guide In Blue was directed by James William Guerco, who managed the group Chicago at the time, (thank you IMDB.) Martin Scorese was supposed to direct The Honeymoon Killers but was fired to taking to much time. He was replaced by a man whose name I can't remember, but never made another film. Both were not actors.

sfpcc1 is correct. The official director of *THE HONEYMOON KILLERS* is Leonard Kastle. I could have also listed *GANGSTER STORY* (Walter Matthau) or *THE SENATOR WAS INDISCREET* (George S. Kaufman). Nice work, spfcc1. The thread is yours . . .

At least two of them feature suicides. (If I'm right, do I get to do the next question?)

Harry Morgan was in the Oxbow Incident

Loretta Swit was in SOB

David Ogden Stires was in Creator, (Peter O'Toole calls him an a**hole)

Alan Alda was in Crimes And Misdameanors

 

I could mentioned Cool Hand Luke, (Wayne Rogers), The Graduate, (Mike Farrel has a very small part), Cannonball Run 2, (Jamie Farr), or Kotch, (Larry Linville has a small part.)

The answer I'm looking for is NOT Billy Wilder or Jack Lemmon

I guess I would have to give it to you, but I was really looking for a performer. Anyone?

Does this have something to do with the movie version being first, and the stage version afterwards, the reverse of the traditional sequence?

No, it's actually less complicated than that; it has to do with the song scores of each of the films.
