Favorite Siblings and Their Movies

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of Hollywood families in the movie industry.  Usually when the relationships are parent and child, they have the same surname.  Siblings quite often don't, especially during the studio system era when you were given new names. 

 

What siblings do you admire their work.  Are you familiar with all members of a family, or do you prefer one over the other?  What are your favourite films of theirs?

 

 

 

I am a fan of both Joan Fontaine and Olivia DeHaviland

I love  all Barrymore siblings with a preference for lionel

I am a fan of both James Arness and Peter Graves

I am more of a fan of Dana Andrews than Steve Forrest.

I like Jane more than Peter Fonda.

 

Both Stacy and James Keach are good.

 

David>Keith>Robert Carradine.

 

Dennis and Randy Quaid are both good, until Randy flipped out.

 

Both Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal are good.

I have always preferred Jane Fonda films over Peter Fonda films-likely the types of movies they made.

I enjoy all the Carradines.

 

I'm much more familiar with Stacy Keach than James Keach.

 

Thanks for your choices.

Jeff and Beau Bridges

I've seen a lot more of Jeff's films than Beau's films.  I love this family.  I'm a big fan of their father.

 

My favourite movie of both of theirs is The Fabulous Baker Boys.

A little younger Beau would have made a good Jeb!

Big fan of the Barrymore brothers, particularly John.

 

Ethel is an acquired taste, which I have not yet acquired.

Well, what do you know. I never thought Ethel Barrymore would get so many laughs.

As for studio-era actresses I would add the Bennett sisters Connie and Joan,    and the Lane sisters,  Rosemary,   Lola,  and Priscilla  (best of the bunch).

Then there are the Redgraves: Vanessa, Lynn, and Corin in order of my preference.

 

I know the sisters' careers very well.  I don't know Corin Redgrave at all.

I enjoy John and Joan Cusack especially in "Grosse Point Blank"

I am more familiar with John than his sister.  I haven't seen Grosse Point Blank yet.  Thanks for the recommendation.

And in a smaller part, she's good in "Working Girl", just enjoyed that again the other day.

Shirley MacLaine (The Apartment) and Warren Beatty (Splendor in the Grass).

I dislike Warren Beatty very much. I find he's into himself too much.

 

Olivia De Havilland (Gone with the Wind) and Joan Fontaine (Suspicion).

I wouldn't say I prefer one to the other. Equally talented. I feel their feud was foolish. It would have been interesting for them to be in a film together.

 

Ben Affleck (Gone Girl, Jersey Girl) and Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone, The Killer Inside Me).

Equally talented, really.

 

Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Dark Knight) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Zodiac, Jarhead).

Equally talented too.

 

Natalie Wood (Splendor in the Grass, Rebel Without a Cause, West Side Story, etc) and Lana Wood (The Searchers).

Natalie Wood is my ultimate actress hands down as well all know by now, that was a no contest comparison. Nothing against Lana.

Thanks Paul for your choices including the cross out of Warren Beatty.

 

Did you see Lilith when it aired Tuesday?  I saw it for Peter Fonda.  Beatty was a bit over the top for me.

No problem! Had he been nicer to all the women he ended up treating horribly, he wouldn't be so bad.

 

I did have it on, yes. I definitely agree with you, Peter Fonda over Warren Beatty!
