What Do They Have in Common?


Recommended Posts

I think about you every holiday season... whenever I don't receive a gift.

:P

 

I began with the film It's a Wonderful Life (1946) and only one of the leads, Lionel Barrymore, is from Philadelphia. The rest are from all over.

 

Then Rope (1948) has Joan Chandler from Butler, Pa.

 

A random selection of just a few remaining Stewart films reveals no (prominent) Philadelphia or Pa. born cast members.

 

That's the angle I'm working, and I haven't checked much deeper.

Wrong angle. Each of the three worked with an actor of approximately the same age from Philly.

Hint: The three actors from Philly were all young.

 

Are we looking for one name? So far, I've linked Dick Van Dyke and a young Bobby Rydell - and James Stewart with Bobby Rydell, but not a film... an ABC variety show. Nothing else yet.

Van Dyke and Rydell in BYE BYE BIRDIE is correct.. With whom are Stewart and Milland linked?

+Was Fabian in MR. HOBBS? I know he was in a different Stewart film.

He was a guy named Joe, who Stewart bribed to pay attention to his daughter at the dance.

Interesting..

 

this means Fabian has been in at least two Stewart films. The other being Dear Brigitte (1965).

Is it that they each appeared in at least one episode of Night Gallery?

 

Although this is true, I am looking for another commonality involving the same (tv) series.

Would it be that they all played a character named Julia?  Doris Nolan played Julia Seton in Holiday, Greer Garson played Julia Packett in Julia Misbehaves, and Annette Bening played Julia Lambert in Being Julia.

That's it, Star. Excellent job!  It's your turn.
