What Do They Have in Common?

Recommended Posts

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.

Dailey ? The Pride of St. Louis

any guesses ?? If no guesses by tomorrow, I'll give another clue then.

 

Next:

Doris Day

Kathryn Grayson

Deborah Kerr

Jane Wyman

 

In what way are these actresses connected?

 

One hint: what the others have done once, Deborah Kerr has done twice.

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.)

Doris Day

Kathryn Grayson

Deborah Kerr

Jane Wyman

 

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)?

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:

 

James Garner

Eve Arden

Steve McQueen

Gene Kelly

Martha Hyer

Terry Moore

Jeanne Crain

 

Good luck!

 

Terrence.

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.

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
