Sounds like Leo G Carroll. He was Cosmo Topper in the tv series Topper and Alexander Waverly in The Man From Uncle.

Some of his films would include North By Northwest, Strangers On a Train and he played the killer      Dr. Murchinson in Spellbound ??????

Yes, Leo G was a big baby boomer favorite on TV. And apparently also a favorite with Hitchcock.  Of course, I like him best in my favorite Hitchcock movie, Rebecca.

Lav, Good Show! It's all yours--

Sandra Dee and Susan Kohner have a connection. They were in a film together but the connection involves another film that one of them played a role. Please name the film they were together in, the other film one of them was in and what is that connection ???

Once you get the comedy one of the actresses was in, with some thought the connection to the other actress will follow. Look at the first clue and 2nd clue, they are giveaways.

Yes, it's exactly correct, Arsan. Gidget, written by Fredrick Kohner was the true story of his daughter and her interest in surfing. Paul Kohner, Susan Kohner's father and Fredrick Kohner were brothers. Sandra Dee and Susan Kohner were in Imitiation of Life together and Sandra was the star of Gidget, the story the film Gidget is based on was written by Fredrick Kohner, Susan's uncle. That's the connection between Susan and Sandra. Very good work and thanks Arsan, your thread :);)

Thank you, Lavender.

When a certain Hollywood star expressed interest in playing the lead in a heavy drama, the director said that "it would be like expecting a chocolate milkshake to do the work of a double martini". Eventually the star played the lead in the movie to great acclaim.

Star, movie, and director?

Correct, Lavender. Mike Nichols didn't think Elizabeth Taylor could portray Martha. Elizabeth herself had doubts, but Richard Burton persuaded her to take the challenge.

Thank you, Lavender, your turn.
