The Movie-TV Connection Game (June 2016)

What do Ida and Jodie have in common?
For those new to this game, you will be given a pair or trio of films or performers. Your task is to find the common connection. It could be anything--two stars who acted in the same movie, two movies that share a common theme, etc. As always, don't answer all the questions so others can play, too. There is a single best answer for each question.

1. The Scarlet Claw and The List of Adrian Messenger.

2. Cry Wolf (the Errol Flynn pic) and Fellini's La Strada.

3. Errol Flynn and Peter O'Toole.

4. Richard Burton and Richard Harris.

5. Richard Harris and Thank God, It's Friday (this one is a little loose).

6. Star Trek: The Next Generation and the TV series The Prisoner.

7. Green Acres and Animal Farm (an easy one).

8. The Plague Dogs and Disney's animated Robin Hood.

9. Ida Lupino and Jodie Foster.

10. Joan Collins and Dorothy Lamour.

11. Eleanor Parker and Joan Collins.

12. Guy Williams and Van Williams.

13. Michael York and Gene Kelly.

14. Burt Lancaster and James Stewart.

15. Robert Mitchum and Patrick McGoohan.

    1. Very good, CW! You know, it was so different to see someone other than Dorothy as the lead in a ROAD pic.

    1. I'm impressed, Bill. Thought that was one of the more difficult connections.

  7. 3. Both played swashbuckers -- Flynn in numerous films (and one of his well identified on camera personas) -- and Peter O'Toole played a swashbucking washed up film star (a la Errol Flynn) in My Favorite Year.

    1. Yes, the O'Toole character in MY FAVORITE YEAR is supposedly based in Flynn.

    1. I never thought about that connection! That's what I love about this game. I was thinking of scientist/inventors in prison.
