  1. Lee Tracy was in THE BEST MAN with Henry Fonda.

    Henry Fonda is the father of Jane Fonda.

    Jane Fonda was in STANLEY & IRIS with Robert DeNiro.

    Robert DeNiro was in CITY BY THE SEA with James Franco.


    Next: Rosalind Russell and Arnold Schwarzenegger

  2. Yes, cmvgor, Neville Brand it is (sorry, myladyeve, although Jack Warden is a very good guess). I was always amused by the fact that Brand's (perhaps) two best known roles, Al Capone and Texas ranger Reese Bennett, were such opposite types.


    The board is yours.

  3. Okay, here goes.


    As with many of my contemporaries, I joined the armed forces, but in my case, I joined prior to the outbreak of World War II, intending to make that my career. But the acting bug bit me and, after the war, I used my GI Bill money to study acting and broke into movies playing one of the meanest guys you'll ever see. Interestingly, my two main claims to fame acting-wise are characters you might say are polar opposities of one another, and if I may say so, I played them both equally well.

    > All 241 minutes crammed onto one disc. The quality must be execrable. Surely somebody will eventually do the proper release the serial deserves.


    Well, that may be so. I couldn't say. But I can say that the quality on the VHS release, consisting of two tapes in SP mode (which I bought in 2000), was quite good, and from what I've read, is probably going to be "the best there is" unless someone plays it on, say, a channel devoted to classic film. If you still have one of those old-fangled VCRs, that might be the way to go.

    > And speaking of Buster Crabbe, isn't it about time for whoever holds the copyright and film elements to issue the 1930s BUCK ROGERS serial on DVD? I always liked it much better than FLASH GORDON, in that it had a serious anti-tyranny message underneath all the Saturday-mornihb serial derring-do.


    BUCK ROGERS, 1939, was released on DVD by VCI Home Video back in 2000. As far as I can tell, it isn't a "bootleg" copy but a genuine release. It's available at Amazon and probably other places as well.

  6. Robert Walker (Sr.) is the father of Robert Walker Jr.

    Robert Walker Jr. guest starred in an episode of the original Star Trek called "Charlie X."

    Leo Penn directed another episode of the original Star Trek called "The Enemy Within."

    Leo Penn is the father of Sean Penn.


    Next: Leonardo DiCaprio and Humphrey Bogart.

  7. Billy Gilbert was in FIVE WEEKS IN A BALLOON with Barbara Eden.

    Barbara Eden was in DEAD MAN's ISLAND with William Shatner.

    William Shatner hosts "Shatner's Raw Nerve," on which Jimmy Kimmel has appeared as a guest.


    Next: Boris Karloff and John Houseman.

  8. If you can provide any details, that would really be of help if you're looking for a specific title. In the meantime, here a few films featuring behind-the-lines sabotage type plots:


    THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI, 1957, with William Holden

    THE DIRTY DOZEN, 1967, with Lee Marvin (and its sequels)

    THE GUNS OF NAVARONE, 1961, with Gregory Peck

    HEROES OF TELEMARK, 1965, with Kirk Douglas

    OPERATION CROSSBOW, 1965, with George Peppard

    SABOTAGE AGENT, aka TARTU, 1943, with Robert Donat


    and just about every episode of "Hogan's Heroes."
