Six Degrees of Separation

Recommended Posts

I thought this would be a fun forum game. I, starting out would put two names down, and the next person would have to link them in 6 degrees or less. Now, this is a movie forum, so they should be movie related. Then you write 2 names for the next person.


OK? First one:


James Cagney & Mel Blanc


And remember--6 degrees or less!
