* Six Degrees of Separation *

Recommended Posts

I thought there would be more distance between them than this:

 

Clara Bow < Call Her Savage > Gilbert Roland

Gilbert Roland < Barbarosa > Gary Busey

Gary Busey < Chasers > Crispin Glover

Crispin Glover < Like Mike > Bow Wow

Wow, that's good wordmaster. I tried to do it and took the Lucille Ball/Gene Kelly way but I came up short.

Your compliment is much appreciated, Kayla.

 

By an odd coincidence, the date that you registered on the boards here happens to be my birthday. Cool. B-)

 

After I get the go-ahead from our questioner, I will offer up some names for your consideration.

All right, Mr. CharlieT...Wiseacre. ;-)

 

So I'm a child prodigy...what can I tell you?

[Actually 2005 was my 50th birthday, for those of you at home keeping track]

 

Now, for a question:

 

Connect Charles Drake with Ryan Gosling

Charles Drake w/ Humphrey Bogart in THE MALTESE FALCON

Humphrey Bogart w/ Myrna Loy in BODY AND SOUL

Myrna Loy w/ Virginia Mayo in THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIFES

Virginia Mayo w/ Paul Newman in THE SILVER CHALICE

Paul Newman w/ James Garner in ONCE UPON A WHEEL

James Garner w/ Ryan Gosling in THE NOTEBOOK

 

question: can documentaries be used? tv shows?

 

if the above is acceptable, I'll go ahead with the next game since I won't be on tomorrow early enough. Connect Williams Haines with Anthony Quinn.

Excellent job, Kayla!

 

Documentaries are fine with me; TV shows we discourage [as an unwritten rule; usually it is not necessary to use them].

 

FYI: this route is a bit quicker, though:

 

Charles Drake < Showdown > Strother Martin

Strother Martin < Cool Hand Luke > Paul Newman

Paul Newman < Once Upon a Wheel > James Garner

James Garner < The Notebook > Ryan Gosling

 

I'll work on your challenge now...

William Haines is a new name for me - that's why I like this game - I discover new names and movies all the time.

 

William Haines < Are You Listening? > John Miljan

John Miljan < The Plainsman > Anthony Quinn

I orginally thought that you had to find exactly six ways of seperation between the two thats why mine was so long.

But you got it right, (and so quickly); congrats.

 

 

Regarding new actors, William Haines is one that I admire so I chose him. At first, I connected him with Richard Basehart but thought it would be too hard.

That's all right, Kayla.

 

The goal is to make the connection correctly...you can take as few or as many steps as you need. If you get the correct answer first, you get to ask the next question.

 

We try to keep it simple.

 

Here's the next question:

 

Connect Dudley Digges to Taye Diggs

stooge, I must admit that 8 links is definately a first in this game. The main object is that you connected, and had fun with it. Congratulations!

 

It's your turn.

 

For the record I connected in 4:

Robert Cummings in "Stagecoach" w/Ann Margret

Ann Margret in "The Cincinatti Kid" w/Steve McQueen

Steve McQueen in "Junior Bonner" w/Joe Don Baker

Joe Don Baker in "GoldenEye" w/Alan Cumming
