Can you name the famous artist or painter each one played ?...
Alright, let's put this question to rest. Here are the answers:
Anthony Quinn won an Oscar for playing Paul Gauguin in "Lust For Life"
Alfred Molina played the Mexican artist Diego Rivera in "Frida"
Val Kilmer played Willem DeKooning in "****" starring Ed Harris
Christopher Lee played Georges Seurat in the Toulouse-Lautrec biography "Moulin Rouge"
You can have the thread, Fi.
Dan Dailey, Ronald Reagan, James Stewart
Is it that they all played baseball players in bio-pics?
Dailey ? The Pride of St. Louis
Reagan ? The Winning Team
Stewart ? The Stratton Story
You're almost there. Be a little more specific.
Is it that they all played baseball players who excelled as pitchers in bio-pics?
That's it. Dizzy Dean, Grover Cleveland Alexander, and Monte Stratton. Your thread.
any guesses ?? If no guesses by tomorrow, I'll give another clue then.
In what way are these actresses connected?
One hint: what the others have done once, Deborah Kerr has done twice.

This is just a guess, but have they all appeared in movies with Frank Sinatra?
No, that?s not the answer I?m looking for. They all have a movie relationship in some way to an actress whose peak was in the 1930s and early 1940s. (That?s the next clue I was going to give.)
They all were in remakes of movies that all starred one actress in particular. Can you name the actress and all five movies (Kerr made two)?
IRENE DUNNE............. .Doris Day---MOVE OVER DARLING
Deborah Kerr---AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER, THE KING AND I
Jane Wyman---MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION, LET'S DO IT AGAIN

Fi, both Kathryn Grayson and Irene Dunne played Magnolia Hawks in different versions of "Showboat"...A very good question, Lana.

I agree, Lana, this was a great question. I don't know why it didn't occur to me, since I love all these movies. I'm glad someone was able to come up with the answer. When I suggested Frank Sinatra movies, I really didn't think that was the answer, since Jane Wyman didn't fit it. OK. Here's one. I purposely have included several names, since this might be a hard one. What do the following have in common:
I appreciate your eagerness, terrence1, but since finance answered the bulk of it, he should have the next turn. (By the way, I was sure I was missing a remake in there somewhere, finance. Thanks for reminding me.)
So, it should be finance?s turn.

Thanks for the reminder, Allabout Lana. I'll try to contain myself in the future.
Hint: Think TV.
they were all replaced after originating a TV role in pilot shows...
This is all I can come up with--
They starred in or did the first season or pilots for popular TV series--but they weren't included in the long runs:
Carl Reiner--"The Dick Van Dyke Show" 1st aka--"Head of the Family"--played Rob Petrie
Jackie Gleason--"Life of Riley"--played Riley
Max Showalter (CA)--pilot for "Leave It To Beaver"--played Ward Cleaver
VERY good, cujas. Also yours
Next: Bela Lugosi and Brian Donlevy
