No Relation?

Yeah, we know the BARRYMORES are related.  So are the CARRADINES.  AND, the KEACH's  The PENN brothers, and DILLON brothers and such,

 

But, how many hollywood actresses and actors have the same LAST names, but are NOT related?

 

Y'know, like AUDREY and KATHERINE HEPBURN?

 

or FARLEY and STEWART GRANGER?  (STEWART'S real name is JAMES STEWART, and consequently, he is also NO relation to the JIMMY STEWART we're all familiar with.)

 

JOEL McCRAE? GORDON McCRAE?

 

Sandra Dee,  FRANCIS DEE?

 

JOAN FONTAINE?   FRANK FONTAINE??

 

JAMES and JACKIE GLEASON?

 

NED and WARREN BEATTY?

 

Who am I missing?

If you go to the Games And Trivia forum, you will see a thread that I started some years ago called "Same Name, No Relation".  We have covered quite a few celebrities with the same last names over the years.  Why not try your hand at some?  Remember, spelling counts, so you can't have Claude Rains and Ella Raines.  Give it a shot!

The resemblance is closer than it is with Newman from "Seinfeld".

This reminds me of the funny line in "Die Hard" when the 2 FBI agents arrived, one black the other white both name Johnson.

 

FBI Agent Johnson....I'm Agent Johnson, this is Special Agent Johnson.

Dwayne Robinson.....Oh, how you're doin'?

Agent Johnson.....No relation.

Something didn't look right here,  its Joel McCrea and  Gordon MacCrae . Sorry, both were misspelled.  As Sepiatone also pointed out, some people didn't use their given  names (Stewart Granger's last name was Stewart, I wonder why he didn't call himself Stewart James?) How about Joan and Broderick Crawford? And  there's Johnny Crawford (from The Rifleman).

Almost there, Mr. R., it's Gordon MacRae.

NO PHOTOS are needed.  ESPECIALLY unidentified photos.

 

To carry on.....

 

BUTTERFLY and STEVE McQUEEN! (THAT'D be a shocker!)

 

JAMES and CHARLES COBURN

 

CYRIL and JOHN CUSAK

 

ROBIN and JOHN WILLIAMS ( Neither the composer or English actor)

 

NANCY and ROBERT WALKER

 

Speaking of NEWMANS;

 

Mad magazine's ALFRED E. NEWMAN is NOT also ALFRED NEWMAN, the film score composer....and of course;

 

NO relation to

 

PAUL NEWMAN and RANDY NEWMAN (of course, Randy is composer Alfred's nephew)

 

DENNIS and WILLIAM HOPPER(  but who both ironically, worked in Rebel Without A Cause )

 

RON and Moe, Shemp and CURLY HOWARD

 

ROGER, GARY and MARY TYLER MOORE!

 

I quit bothering with the "Games and Trivia" page when I tried to find something out, and my inquiry was treated like a game.  I asked a question, and the first reply wasn't really an answer, but the reply was followed by the words---"Your turn!"

????

 

I tried some of the games, but the "rules" seemed too arbitrary.  Was told I "didn't properly post" my response, and that I should "wait my turn" even though nobody replied for a couple of days at the time! 

 

So, I decided, "**** it"!

Shirley Booth and John Wilkes Booth.

 

And, not only were they not related, but Shirley never owned a derringer as far as I know.

 

(...nope, no pistol-packin' mama, she!)

And I suppose POWERS BOOTH wasn't related, either?

 

JACK CARSON and JOHNNY CARSON( and as "Jack" is an offshoot of "John", makes you wonder, eh?)

 

AND, I'm also guessing KIT CARSON is out of that running, too!

 

BILL and EDWARD G. ROBINSON (hee-hee-hee! DANCE, RICO!)

 

ESTHER and BILLY DEE WILLIAMS

 

Aaaaannnd.........last, but not LEAST------

 

SEPIA and FRANCHOT TONE!  :P
